We Energies has been working to help the peregrine falcon recover for nearly 25 years.

When the pesticide DDT was used in the 1950s and ‘60s, the chemicals passed through the food chain, causing eggshell thinning that led to loss of young in many raptor species, including peregrines.

The utility now has peregrine nest boxes at six power plants. More than 200 chicks have been hatched at We Energies facilities.

During their recovery, about 20 percent of Wisconsin-born peregrine falcons have hatched in nesting boxes on our power plant chimneys.
