Building Info

Natural gas power plant in the Menomonee River Valley owned by We Energies. The full conversion to natural gas from coal was completed in 2015.

The plant has a capacity of 280 megawatts, split evenly over two units.

The plant provides steam to 480 customers, primarily located in and around Downtown Milwaukee.

According to We Energies, the plant consumed 2,200 tons of coal per day before conversion to natural gas. It used 110,800 gallons of water every minute to convert exhaust steam back into water.

Coal was transported to the plant by barge from a storage site on E. Greenfield Ave.
