One member of the EUCG's fossil generation committee from an Ohio Valley utility said that cycling and low-load operations pose challenges for one of his company's 1,300-MW coal-fired plants that "two years ago we wouldn't have considered possible." "We said 'no way,' and now we do it every night," he said, referring to the nearly nightly reduction in generating output to around 750 MW. The plant might be capable of shaving off another 100 MW of output, but operators are mindful of maintaining adequate temperatures t keep the plant's selective catalytic reduction equipment operating.
