Elm Road Generating Station Wisconsin Electric Power Company | 2005-2007
The Elm Road Generating Station is located on the shore of Lake Michigan in the city of Oak Creek, Wisconsin, approximately 12 miles south of the city of Milwaukee. The project involves the construction of two new coal-fired electric generating units and common facilities to accommodate up to 3,000 megawatts of generation at the site. Offshore construction will affect 22 acres of Lake Michigan through dredging, fill, stabilization, and placement of structures.
