$1.3 Billion Power Plant Proposal

By  | 

Wisconsin regulators plan to decide this week whether to approve plans for a new $1.3 billion power plant.

Alliant Energy wants to build a 300-megawatt coal-fired facility in Cassville or, as an alternative, Portage. The power company says it would use renewable fuel for 20 percent of the plant's output and shut down an aging coal-fired boiler in Sheboygan as part of the deal.

The Public Service Commission is expected to decide whether to accept Alliant's application at a meeting Tuesday.
