Because of environmental regulations, FirstEnergy Corp. will be closing the Rivesville Power Station and two other coal-fired power plants in West Virginia by Sept. 1.

Based on U.S. Environmental Protection Agency rules, FirstEnergy Corp. has to close the Rivesville Power Station and two other coal-fired power plants in the state, said FirstEnergy spokesman Mark Durbin.

On Wednesday, FirstEnergy made the announcement that it plans to shut down the Rivesville Power Station in Marion County, the Albright Power Station in Preston County, and the Willow Island Power Station near the Parkersburg area.

Mon Power, a subsidiary of FirstEnergy, operates these facilities, which will be retired by Sept. 1 of this year.
