We Energies, Wolverine to end joint venture at Presque Isle Power Plant

We Energies and Wolverine Power Cooperative announced today the two companies have decided to end their joint venture at the Presque Isle Power Plant. The joint venture would have resulted in joint ownership of the plant by We Energies and Wolverine along with the installation of new emission controls.

At this point We Energies intends to complete a System Support Resources Agreement with the Midcontinent Independent System Operator (MISO) for the output of the Presque Isle Power Plant. 

This agreement is expected to have a one-year term. We Energies will now evaluate long-term options for the plant, including the possibility of establishing a process to solicit other potential buyers for some or all of the plant's capacity.

Wolverine is a generation and transmission cooperative headquartered in Cadillac, Mich. It supplies power to five distribution electric cooperatives and two Alternative Electric Suppliers in the Lower Peninsula.

We Energies serves more than 1.1 million electric customers in Wisconsin and Michigan's Upper Peninsula and 1.1 million natural gas customers in Wisconsin. We Energies is the trade name of Wisconsin Electric Power Co. and Wisconsin Gas LLC, the principal utility subsidiaries of Wisconsin Energy Corp. (WEC).
