Power Plant Demolition

    Power Plant Demolition
    Posted on 09/28/2020
    The process of demolishing an iconic industrial landmark in southeastern Wisconsin has begun. In July, We Energies initiated abatement plans for the Pleasant Prairie Power Plant. The razing project will start with outbuildings and disconnecting utilities. The dismantling and restoration of the entire site will continue throughout 2021.

    The Pleasant Prairie Power Plant went into service in 1980 and continued operations until 2018. It is known for being one of the biggest coal-fired power plants in the region. The power plant property covers nearly 570 acres, stretching north from 95th Street to Highway 50, taking up the area between the Union Pacific and Canadian-Pacific railways. We Energies plans to retain about 80 acres of land for the substation and transmission lines that will continue operations. The remaining property will be sold to support future developments.
