    WISCONSIN PUBLIC SERVICE CORP FILES (8-K) Disclosing Other Events, Financial Statements and Exhibits

    June 23, 2022 - Edgar Glimpses



      On June 23, 2022, Wisconsin Electric Power Company ("WE"), a wholly-owned subsidiary of WEC Energy Group, Inc. (the "Company"), issued a news release announcing plans to extend the operating lives of the four older units at its Oak Creek site. This will delay the planned retirement of Units 5 and 6 by one year, until May 2024, and of Units 7 and 8 by approximately 18 months, until late in 2025. We do not anticipate that any significant, new capital investments will be required to keep the units in operation during this time.

      A copy of the news release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.

      In addition, Wisconsin Power & Light Company, which operates the Columbia Energy Center, now plans to retire the two Columbia units by June 1, 2026. Original plans called for these units to be retired at the end of 2023 and 2024. Wisconsin Public Service Corporation ("WPS"), an indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, owns approximately 300 MW (27.5%) of the Columbia Energy Center units' capacity.
