The Northport Power Station in Northport, New York is a natural gas and conventional oil electric power generating station that serves Long Island. It was built by the Long Island Lighting Company (LILCO) in 1967 and is now part of Long Island Power Authority. It is managed by Public Service Enterprise Group (PSEG).
Northport has four generators that put out 1,522 megawatts. The last one was built in 1977.
Northport Power Station is the largest oil-fired electric generating plant on the East Coast and its outdated technologies have made it a target of environmental groups. In fact, the American Lung Association has given Suffolk County, where the plant is located, air quality grades of “F” for the past 15 years.
A 2014 Supreme Court decision that will permit the Environmental Protection Administration to administer recent Clean Air Act “Good Neighbor” rules may force the plant to modernize because its emissions are contributing to unhealthy ozone levels in states downwind from it.
