PSC to Hold Public Hearings on Proposed Wind Project in Fond du Lac County

The Public Service Commission of Wisconsin (PSC) will hold public hearings in Malone, Wisconsin on Thursday, November 30 regarding We Energies’ application to construct a wind electric generation facility in Fond du Lac County.

Citizens are invited to provide testimony on We Energies’ request to construct approximately 88 wind turbines, which could generate up to 200 megawatts of energy, in the towns of Calumet and Marshfield.
