GenOn Announces Retirement Of Morgantown Coal Units

Local 1900 Brothers and Sisters,

On Wednesday June 9, 2021 GenOn announced their intention to deactivate and retire the Morgantown coal units effective June 1, 2022. PJM has 90 days to consider the reliability consequences of deactivation and retirement.

GenOn is pursuing a sale of the coal site portion of the property possibly to coincide with the retirement date. A sale would likely impact workforce reduction timing.

Local 1900 will remain in contact with GenOn leadership regarding the shutdown.

Please continue to work safely and contact Local 1900 if you have questions.

In Solidarity,
Jerry R. Williford Jr.
IBEW Local 1900
