HOMER CITY — An NRG Energy spokesman confirmed that layoffs scheduled next month will affect 43 jobs at the Homer City Generating Station in Center Township.

“NRG Energy operates the Homer City Generation Station, on behalf of its owner,” spokesman Dave Schrader said Thursday afternoon. “The recently announced workforce reductions, while difficult, are necessary to preserve as many jobs as possible while continuing viable and safe operation of the plant.”
