They shutdown the N plant by me several years ago. The coal plant was decommissioned and is now torn down. They put in a NG plant before they shutdown the other two. I suppose the reasoning behind it is that the NG is easier to ramp up and down to meet demands versus constant production from the N or coal plants.
