The Clean Power Coalition – Southeast Wisconsin will educate the public about the dangers of burning coal on the health of those who live and work in the vicinity of WE Energies’ South Oak Creek and Elm Road Power Plants. How we choose to generate electricity has consequences that reach far beyond the return on shareholder investment, affecting everything from public health to a stable climate. When air, water, and soil are polluted, health and life are put at risk.
The Clean Power Coalition – Southeast Wisconsin will promote public debate about the appropriate source of energy for Southeastern Wisconsin. At the same time, the coalition urges WE Energies to:
immediately contain the coal dust and other health hazards from the transportation, storage, burning, and disposal of coal from the Oak Creek plants,
phase out its use of coal, and;
promote rather than obstruct the adoption of renewable energy throughout its service territory.
