You don't close down power plants without affecting the grid. Has anyone seen or heard of any new power plants that have been or will be built?

At one point I read an article explaining that our modern energy efficient homes/appliances have actually resulted in a reduced power demand from the grid. This, of course, means that less megawatts need to be generated. Clearly, the business will go to efficient plants as their costs are typically lower.

Dead sticking may be the preferred method for a while.
