Fighting proposals for new coal plants


Wisconsin shouldn’t build new coal plants that only emit harmful pollutants in our air. To curb our reliance on fossil fuels, Clean Wisconsin fights proposals for new coal-fired power plants and work for clean alternatives instead.

In 2008, Clean Wisconsin achieved a major victory when, for the first time ever, the Public Service Commission denied a proposal to build a new coal-fired power plant. Clean Wisconsin, in arms with environmental groups like Citizens Utility Board, spent two years fighting the proposal, which would have allowed Alliant Energy to build a plant in Cassville. The historic decision set an enormous precedent that’s moving Wisconsin toward a strong clean energy economy.

Clean Wisconsin stands ready to fight any new coal plant in Wisconsin.
