  1. Dynegy to shut down 3 coal -fired power plants in Illinois

    CHICAGO (AP) — Dynegy Inc. has announced it will close three of its coal-fired power plants in southern Illinois that combined generate about 1,834 MW of electricity. Houston-based Dynegy announced Tuesday it will shutter two coal-fired units at its Baldwin Power Station and one coal-fired unit at Newton Power Station over the next year. Dynegy CEO Robert Flexon said power plants in southern Illinois can't recover their operating costs. He blamed that on persistently low wholesale power prices and the downstate grid operator's market design. Dynegy also says an additional 500 MW are targeted for shutdown. Last year, Dynegy announced plans to close its 465 MW Wood River station by June 1, with a loss of 90 jobs. Dynegy Inc. on Tuesday reported a loss of $10 million on first-quarter revenues of $1.12 billion.
