WE Energies Stepping Up Timetable to Eliminate Coal Power Generation by 15 Years

Monday, November 8th, 2021 -- 8:00 AM

(Bill Wise, WRN) Oak Creek-based We Energies is stepping up its timetable to eliminate coal power generation by 15 years.

Its parent company says the new goal is to accomplish that by 2035.  The previous goal was 2050.  We Energies says the main reason to shift away from coal is the environmental impact its use creates, but a spokesperson says it is likely to take decades before a complete shift to renewable power.

We Energies has been using coal to generate power at its Oak Creek plant for nearly 70 years.
