In 2008, it became part of <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Grid_plc#USA">National Grid USA</a> as part of that company's purchase of <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/KeySpan">KeySpan.</a> The plant's output is managed by the <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Long_Island_Power_Authority">Long Island Power Authority</a>. LIPA is a non-profit municipal electric provider, which owns the transmission and distribution system for retail electric power on Long Island.</p>
<p>The plant has been named the second worst polluting power plant in the country but in June completed a $100 million project to reduce nitrogen oxide emissions and fuel use there by 40 percent.</p>
