UPPER MT. BETHEL TWP., Pa. -

Officials will pull the plug on a Northampton County generating station in just a few months.

The Portland Generating Station in Upper Mt. Bethel Township, Northampton County, will close on June 1st.

About 65 people will lose their jobs.

Gen-On -- the company that operates the station -- says it's closing the plant because it's too expensive to bring it up to environmental standards.
