Well, the main thought with discarding some power plant is not only adjust game time. In my opinion most important is not 100% knowledge about available power plants. Especially at final rounds of 2nd stage it could be important.
I'd take them out anyway, you'd speed it up for the first-timers.
Somehow last week's PG session I was in, 4p with 2 new players, took 3 hours, on the USA map. Granted, we had a couple bathroom-and-pizza breaks and did a lot of discussing strategies and situations, but that was still crazy long.
Had we not taken out the 4 random plants for 4p, it would have dragged on (Step 3 would not have started, nobody could build 17, and I don't think either of them would have liked that in their first game).
Experienced 4P PG should be 60-90 minutes, especially on Benelux. Heck, at Unity I was even in an inexperienced 6P PG in < 2 hours on Benelux (1-2 new players).
