Jan. 9 — The utility also agreed to conduct analyses of an assumed retirement of the lignite-fired Pirkey facility in Harrison County, Texas, in 2025 and the retirements of the coal-fired Flint Creek and Welsh plants in 2030. SWEPCO owns a 50% interest in Flint Creek, in Benton County, Arkansas, and in 2016 retired one of the three units at Welsh, in Titus County, Texas. It may also issue a request for proposals for power generation in case of any foreseeable power shortfalls in the next five years.
