The time is right for a renewed investment for long term savings

We in the Kaukauna area are very fortunate to be located on a part of the Fox River that allows us to generate 20% of our power from hydroelectric plants.

Our use of hydro power has saved customers nearly $60,000,000 over the past 10 years and with fossil fuel prices increasing, utilizing clean, efficient hydro power will be an even better bargain for customers moving forward.

However, our two oldest hydro plants, one 83 years old the other over 100 years old, are nearing the end of their useful lives and a new plan must be adopted for the future. In addition, the 130 year old plus power canal is also in need of extensive repairs that are being mandated by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC).
