Coal plant operator unaware of possible Trump move to keep plants open

A major operator of utilities whose coal plants are at risk of shutting down said Friday it doesn’t know of any potential emergency action by Energy Secretary Rick Perry to keep the plants running. Bloomberg reported Thursday night that Perry is considering using his authority under Section 202 of the Federal Power Act to order coal plants run by FirstEnergy Solutions to remain online “to serve the public interest.”
