Wisconsin coal plants to see possible demise

22 February 2010 - Five state-run coal plants in Wisconsin must make a decision to install pollution-control equipment, to reduce their use of coal by displacing part of it with other fuels, or simply to eliminate their use of coal completely, according to the Wisconsin Department of Administration.

The five coal plants, located at UW-Eau Claire, UW-La Crosse, UW-Oshkosh, UW-River Falls, and Mendota Mental Health Institute, were not in compliance with clean air regulations, according to Wisconsin's Department of Natural Resources.

The decision stems from a 2007 a court case initiated by the Sierra Club against the state of Wisconsin over the five power plants.
