We filed applications on April 26, 2013, with the Public Service Commission of Wisconsin for approval to convert the plant’s fuel source to natural gas and upgrade the natural gas infrastructure near the 280-megawatt facility in Milwaukee.
Valley Power Plant conversion
Western Wisconsin needs additional natural gas supply to ensure reliability in the future and to meet growing customer demand. We are evaluating areas for potential natural gas distribution routes to serve the communities between Eau Claire County and the city of Tomah in Monroe County.
West Central natural gas lateral
As part of our ongoing system improvements, we are replacing aging natural gas lines with new pipe that is more resistant to corrosion and earth movement.
We constructed a 50-MW biomass-fueled cogeneration power plant at Domtar Corporation’s Rothschild, Wis., paper mill site.

The air quality control project at Oak Creek Power Plant significantly upgraded existing environmental controls on the older units at the plant to further reduce SO2 and NOx emissions in 2012.

We completed construction of 90 wind turbines in an area west of Randolph, Wis., in 2011.
Glacier Hills Wind Park
Oak Creek Power Plant expansion included construction of two, 615-megawatt coal-fueled generating units in 2010 (Unit 1) and 2011 (Unit 2). The emission-control technology makes the Oak Creek expansion units the cleanest coal-fueled units in the United States.
