About Prairie State Generating Company

Prairie State Energy Campus represents an important step in helping to create a sustainable and secure energy future for this country. It utilizes domestic coal resources and deploys clean generation technologies to produce electricity in a more efficient and environmentally friendly manner.

Located in Washington County, Illinois, Prairie State Energy Campus includes a coal-fired generating plant and adjacent coal mine. The facility generates 1,600 MWs of power, with 100 percent of the output dedicated to nine Midwestern-based public power utilities.

The Prairie State Energy Campus is a technologically advanced electric generation facility, owned by nine non-profit utilities that are committed to providing clean, reliable and affordable base-load power to hundreds of local communities in the Midwest and Mid-Atlantic regions.
