Background

Due to underutilization, Luminus informed the government in 2016 that it may have to permanently close the plant on October 31, 2017.[1] It had been in the Strategic Reserve since 2014.[2] However, it was put back into the Strategic Reserve 2017-2018 and then put back on the market.[3][4]

Luminus' website currently states the site is the location for a new 870 MW gas plant that will be built adjacent to the current power plant.[5]
