They say Wisconsin is stretching every ounce of electrical energy it puts out. Now, supporters of Weston 4 are calling plans for the plant complete.
Wisconsin Public Service expects to file a 1400-page project application with the Public Service Commission of Wisconsin this Friday. The plan calls for a 500-megawatt electrical generator using "clean" coal.
W.P.S. says the project is needed to meet the state's energy demands.
"People are starting to realize we have to build power plants in the state," W.P.S. C.E.O. Larry Weyers says. "We have to improve the transmission lines in the state because the state continues to use more and more energy, and if we're going to have any economic growth in the state, we have to have abundant supplies of energy."
If you have questions or comments on Weston 4, you can speak up at a public meeting this Thursday at the Stoney Creek Inn conference center. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Presentations start at 7.
