Court Ruling Allows We Energies' Oak Creek Project to Proceed

LCG, June 29, 2005--Yesterday the Wisconsin Supreme Court voted 4-2 to reverse a Dane County Circuit Court ruling that had blocked the construction of two, 615-MW coal plants. With the new ruling, We Energies plans to proceed rapidly towards construction.

Dane County Circuit Judge David Flanagan had ruled last November that the Wisconsin Public Service Commission's (WPSC) approval of the Oak Creek project violated state statutes and that the WPSC must restart the approval process. The PSCW approved the construction of the project in November 2003. The project, estimated to cost $2.15 billion, includes two, supercritical pulverized coal units and would be the largest coal plant in Wisconsin.

The project was opposed in court by Clean Wisconsin Inc. and S.C. Johnson & Sons Inc. These opponents are also challenging three state permits which the plant needs to operate, including a lawsuit with the Dane County Circuit Court that challenges the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources' air pollution permit and one for the cooling system, which was an item of dissent among Supreme Court justices.
