Dynegy Officially Shuts Two Coal-Generation Units

By Editors of Power Engineering

A quarterly report from Dynegy indicates the power producer has followed through with plans to shut down two coal-fired units.

The affected units are Newton unit 2, which shut down on Sept. 15, and Baldwin unit 3, which shut down October 17. The two units failed to clear the most recent MISO capacity auction.

The company announced the impending shutdown of the Illinois plants in May.

Baldwin units 1 and 2 and Newton unit 1 remain in operation.

Additionally, Dynegy filed notice with the California Independent System Operator that the company intends to retire Moss Landing units 6 and 7 by the end of January 2017. The two units did not secure a Resource Adequacy transaction, which left them unable to recover basic operating costs.
