NRG Energy, Inc. said that it expects to return to service its inactive 385 MW Gregory natural gas plant, in Corpus Christi, Texas.
The Gregory plant ceased operations in late 2016 when its cogeneration partner, Sherwin Alumina, filed for bankruptcy and discontinued operations.
Following resolution of certain issues resulting from the Sherwin Alumina bankruptcy, the Gregory plant is expected to return to service as a combined cycle facility in early June 2019, NRG said
"The Public Utility Commission of Texas’ recent actions to further strengthen the ERCOT market reinforced our decision to return Gregory to service ahead of summer, providing additional reliability to our customers and Texas’ growing economy," said Mauricio Gutierrez, President and CEO of NRG.
