WE Energies Proposing $370 million natural gas facilities project near Whitewater and Ixonia

WE Energies has requested approval from the WI Public Service Commission to build liquefied natural gas peaking facilities near Whitewater and Ixonia. WE stated that it has not selected specific sites for the two plants, but said one would likely be in Bluff Creek, just southeast of Whitewater.

The plants would take delivery of natural gas by existing pipelines, cool it to -260 degrees F to liquefy it and then store it. The gas would then be heated to vaporize it and be used in the distribution system during high demand periods, often in winter. WE plans to begin construction in late 2020 and place the facilities into service in 2023 or 2024.
