RESPONSIBLY RETIRING EXISTING DOWNSTATE COAL PLANTS
Vistra and plants at its Illinois subsidiaries account for nearly 5,500 MW of electricity capacity in the MISO Zone 4 market. This is approximately 40% of the overall available summer electric capacity in the market. But, due to longstanding factors, Vistra’s Illinois affiliates have determined as much as 75% of their total in-market electric capacity is at-risk of imminent closure. By keeping otherwise uneconomic plants online through 2024, this provides sufficient time for new renewables, transmission, and energy efficiency projects to materialize while also providing more stability for grid reliability and power prices.
