Neighbors that live around the We Energies Oak Creek Power Plant gathered for another meeting and vowed to put political pressure on state and federal Legislators to have the power plant converted to use natural gas. However, not all the people who attended the meeting agreed with the idea. The utility, which operates the largest coal plant in Wisconsin, meets current U.S. EPA standards. However, those rules have changed and Wisconsin is among a number of states that have filed a lawsuit against the EPA over the Clean Power standards.
