Had enough, other people such as yourself do not get the fact that roughly 40% of the nations power production comes from coal, and a very large quantity of that is in PA where National Grid thinks they'll bring power from. A little discussed fact is that in 2015, new EPA regulations go into effect that will close many of those plants and Obamas new carbon initiative will take care of the rest. The electric grid needs whats called "reserve capacity" the NYS independent system operator knows this and so does the PSC. National Grid doesnt want to address the real issue, they want to use this plant closing as an opprotunity to maintain the transmission grid that thhey've neglected for 2 decades and do it on the ratepayers dime under the guise of "reliability" Its bullcrap and the PSC knows it.

Some people just don't get it or do they. Senator Young knows she is fighting a losing battle on NRG. But when it comes election time she will get reelected using her I tried to save the NRG plant as her slogan. Are the American people gullible? Or what?

well , we cannot depend on wind or solar to make up the difference. Transmission line upgrade will do it. Dunkirk appears to be going down the same path Lackawanna did in the 60's and 70's. remember the steel plants ? remeber the slogan , your gonna wanna go to lackawanna ? It fizzled, like Dunkirk will when and if the plant is scrapped.
