ISO New England urges Massachusetts governor to veto power plant emission bill

“While the environmental goals are commendable, Connecticut consumers will pay the price,” Gordon van Welie, President and Chief Executive Officer of ISO New England, said. “This legislation will have a negative impact on the supply, reliability, and cost of electricity. By imposing unrealistic new emission standards on the state’s older power plants, the Legislature has threatened the state’s energy future. Governor Rowland would be wise to carefully evaluate the bill’s ramifications and veto it.”

CHICAGO, June 13, 2001 – Exelon Corporation announced its intent today to eliminate 292 Local 15 Union positions, including 138 layoffs in Exelon Nuclear and 154 at Commonwealth Edison.
