Pleasant Prairie's first unit came online in 1980 and the second in 1985, but after three decades of operation, the coal-fired plant has met the same fate as many others closing in recent years. She added that the company plans to continue employing as numerous 158 people who now work at the coal plant as possible.

Company officials said the economics of the energy market is the factor driving the closure, including low natural gas prices and the low demand for electricity overall.

In announcing the plant closure, We Energies indicated it will find positions for the plant's workers at other facilities.
