VISTRA Energy will accelerate the retirement of their 1,200 MW (enough power to provide energy to 1,400 homes) plant on or before May 2022.

What will replace it? Solar or wind energy with battery storage.

The reason? Money. The price of power that VISTRA could receive has declined by over 50%.

Only renewable energy is economical enough to generate power at the expected energy rates.
