PSC CLEARS SALE OF WE ENERGIES POWER PLANT NEAR WAUWATOSA HOSPITALS

The small coal-fired power plant operated by We Energies in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, can be sold to the Milwaukee
Regional Medical Center (MRMC), state energy regulators have decided. MRMC plans to burn natural gas instead
of coal, helping it use a cleaner energy source to heat and cool the medical complex buildings, including Children’s
Hospital of Wisconsin and Froedtert Hospital. A purchase price is not being disclosed. The power plant, which sits
on a 15-acre site north of Watertown Plank Road, was built in 1955 and was originally owned by Milwaukee County.
Wisconsin Electric, now doing business as We Energies, bought it in 1996.
