The Clean Power Coalition is hosting a public listening session for Southeast Wisconsin residents to express their concerns about the Oak Creek coal plants to the utilities that own them. We Energies has agreed to send representatives, as well as Madison Gas & Electric and WPPI Energy, two other utilities who co-own the newer of the two plants.
If you want to speak, please fill out the RSVP form below.
There will also be an opportunity to sign up to speak at the event. Speaking preference will be given to those living nearest to the plant and coal trains.
