Wisconsin Public Service is in the process of decommissioning its Lincoln Wind Energy Facility.
The 9 MW facility was commissioned in 1999.
The utility stated the project has reached the end of its useful life and is no longer cost-effective to operate.
Notably, the utility’s statement concerning cost-effectiveness is consistent with our observations regarding other decommissionings.
Also notably, this project apparently is not being repowered — confirming careful attention should be paid to revenue in later project years.
