Utility proposes green efforts if new plant is approved  

Wisconsin Power and Light Company is offering a plan to reduce its greenhouse-gas emissions if state regulators agree to its proposal to build a new coal-fired plant in southwestern Wisconsin.

The utility is a subsidiary of Madison-based Alliant Energy Corp. It said Thursday it would cut emissions by adding wind power and by retiring an old coal boiler at its plant in Sheboygan.

Wisconsin Power also said it will increase the amount of organic waste that would be burned at its proposed plant in Cassville.

The company said its offer means any carbon emissions from the new plant would be more than offset by these conservation measures.

Details of the plan are expected to be filed with state regulators Friday.
