GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Wisconsin Public Service Corp. says it will shut down its two oldest electricity-generating units.
The coal-fired units at the J.P. Pulliam Plant in Green Bay are being closed as a result of an agreement with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to repower, refuel or retire older units that produce high emissions of sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxide.
The closure means 10 jobs will be eliminated. WPS spokesman Kerry Spees tells Press-Gazette Media says some of the workers are temporary employees who were hired with the knowledge their jobs could be eliminated.
