According to a notice given to the Ohio Department of Jobs and Family Services, a power plant in Clermont County is permanently closing, putting 87 people out of work.

The William H Zimmer Power Station, located in Moscow, Ohio, is a 1.35-gigatonne coal-fired power plant.

Vistra Energy, based in Dallas, announced plans to close the plant by 2027 due to environmental regulations in September 2020.

Vistra announced in July 2021 that the plant would be closed by May 2022. The decision to close the plant earlier was made after the plant failed to secure any capacity revenues in the most recent auction held by the grid operator, PJM.

In exchange for a commitment to provide on-demand power, PJM pays power plants for that capacity as part of the contract.
