Dairyland Cooperative to close 2 Alma plants


ALMA, Wisconsin (WXOW) - Dairyland Power Cooperative is indefinitely suspending operations at its coal fired Alma, Wisconsin  station.  By 2015 the two coal-fire units will no longer be in service. 

One power plant  will remain completely operational in Alma.  Employees are being offered early retirement plans or may move to other plants within the  company.  Dairyland says many factors went into deciding to close including the age of the facility.

It was built in 1947.  Demand, market prices, and regulations also played a role.
