CEG testified virtually on December 5 and submitted written comments on December 15 regarding the renewal of the Pittsfield Generating Company LP’s operating permit renewal by the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection. Given the significant pollution created by the gas peaker (with fuel oil black start engines), the limited operation of the plant, and its proximity directly behind an elementary school, CEG recommended that the permit renewal be denied and that the facility be modelled for battery storage replacement.
