Luminant moves forward on plans to idle plants


TITUS COUNTY - The Mt. Pleasant Daily Tribune is reporting that Luminant has filed a Notice of Suspension of Operations with ERCOT for Monticello units 1 and 2 in Titus County.

The company says it would also end mining operations at its Thermo and Winfield mines although it would continue reclamation activities.

Luminant has filed a federal lawsuit seeking to remove Texas from a new U.S. Environmental Protection Agency rule due to go into effect January 1.  The company has said previously that the only way it can comply is by idling some of their operations.
