New York Poised to Close Last Coal-fire Power Plant

Commission Approves New Coal Unit at Weston

LCG, September 24, 2004--The Public Service Commission of Wisconsin (PSCW) approved a new, 500 MW coal-fired unit proposed by Wisconsin Public Service Corp. at its Weston Power Plant near Wausau. The expansion at Weston is the first project approved by the PSCW under a new law designed to simplify and streamline the approval process. A formal, written order is anticipated shortly.

The new unit at Weston is planned to commence operations in 2008 and has an estimated cost of $752 million. There are three existing units at the station.

Unlike the past wave of new, gas-fired combined-cycle plants, Wisconsin is experiencing a new wave of coal-fired plants. Late last year, The PSCW approved the construction of We Energies' Oak Creek Project, which includes two 615 MW, supercritical pulverized coal units. The Oak Creek Project will be the largest coal plant in Wisconsin.
