Brayton point power station in Somerset, MA is planning to shut down.
Its owners filed papers on Monday announcing it will stop providing power by 2017.
Environmental groups had long tried to close the coal–powered plant which the EPA named as one of the state's heaviest polluters.
Brayton point is the largest coal–fired plant in New England.
