Ethanol power plant proposed in Wisconsin

By | October 01, 2002
A group of investors from Chicago and Wisconsin are looking into constructing the first of its kind ethanol-fired power plant in Browkaw, Wis.
The group is currently seeking investors and performing interconnection and transmission service studies to see if it is feasible to connect the plant to the American Transmission Company's high-voltage transmission grid. A 20 mmgy ethanol plant would be built at the site. A natural gas pipeline would also be used to provide a secondary fuel for the plant. Early estimates on the costs of such a project are in the $120 million range.
