AES is closing its Somerset power plant for up to 6 months. The company is in bankruptcy and owes $600 million. The plant will be auctioned March 26, but no layoffs have yet been mentioned for the plant's 115 workers. The closure has community leaders worried, since many budgets are heavily funded with tax revenues from the plant. The Barker school district's 2012-2013 budget is counting on AES for 38 percent of its funding.
