We Energies settle as Wisconsin power plant violated air pollution regulations case - via @JSOnline

We Energies will be required to pay $50,000 in penalties and forfeitures to settle allegations that the utility's natural gas-fired power plant in Kenosha County violated air pollution regulations.

The civil complaint filed by the state Department of Justice in Kenosha County court claims We Energies made a major modification to its Paris Generating Station in Union Grove that required it to address the potential impact on air pollution from those changes.

..."The work was performed as routine maintenance that we did not believe required a construction permit at the time," the utility said.

..."The facility is currently in compliance with Wisconsin air pollution laws," the Justice Department said in a prepared statement.
