Rochester Gas and Electric Plans to Retire its 18-Mw Rochester 9 Natural Gas-Fired Combustion Turbine

Rochester Gas and Electric plans to retire its 18-MW Rochester 9 natural gas-fired combustion turbine, telling New York state regulators that it would be too expensive to fix equipment failures that forced the unit offline. RG&E hopes to close Rochester 9 in 90 days, the Iberdrola SA subsidiary said in a Dec. 2 notice to the New York State Public Service Commission. But the utility's proposed shutdown of the plant has yet to undergo an evaluation by the commission and New York's electric grid operator about whether the retirement will put stress on the reliability of the system.
