RWE AG said Thursday that it will restart three power plant units that were previously on standby amid efforts to cut down on the use of natural gas electricity generation.

The restart, which will take place in the coming days, follows orders by the German government, the utility company said.

The three units--Neurath C and Niederaussem E and F--have a capacity of 300 megawatts each. They will be deployed until June 30 next year.

All three reserve power plant units, which run on lignite--also known as brown coal--had been originally expected to shut down permanently by next fall.
