Who will pay for cost overruns at power plant?

Posted:

OAK CREEK (WKOW) -- We Energies customers may be facing unexpected charges due to unforeseen costs with the Oak Creek power plant construction project.

The state's largest construction project has tacked on an extra $177 million because of legal fees and extreme weather conditions which stalled production, and critics don't think it would be fair for those expenses to be passed to the companies patrons.

The state Public Service Commission will eventually decide whether those costs should be passed on to ratepayers.
