The utility will persist in trying to preserve its Salem and Hope Creek nuclear plants, which currently generate more than 90 percent of New Jersey’s zero-carbon electricity.
Carr has been lately been vice president of PSEG’s Hope Creek Generating Station in Salem County, New Jersey.
The utility has agreed to sell its 776-MW portion of the Keystone and Conemaugh coal-fired generation facilities in Pennsylvania sometime in the second half of this year.
The Institute’s chairmanship rotates on an annual basis, and Crane succeeds Lynn J. Good, chairman, president, and CEO of Charlotte-based Duke Energy
The deal includes the 25.9 MW-dc Five Forks Solar and 26.9 MW-dc North Halifax solar, both expected to go into service during the fourth quarter.
Both were coal-burning power stations built in the 1960s and retired in June 2017. The site of the Hudson station originally goes back to a power plant built in 1906, according to reports.
This would be the second renewable application in the history of Peach Bottom Units 2 and 3 in Pennsylvania, which were originally placed on-line in 1974.
