Power Plant Set To Shut Down

SHAMOKIN DAM — An electricity generating plant in Snyder County is set to close in June.

Around 60 union employees at Sunbury Generation were told Monday they will no longer have a job.

The coal generation plant in the Hummels Wharf area has been in operation since the 1940’s.

The company said new environmental regulations that take effect in 2015 will not make it cost-effective to continue operations.
