The Prairie State Energy Campus is setting a new standard for clean coal production. Our state-of-the-art energy campus uses modern technology to produce cleaner, baseload electricity for our member communities. That’s because we’re owned by non-profit municipal utilities and electric cooperatives, so our mission isn’t to serve shareholders—it’s to create a sustainable, secure energy future for the millions of families we serve.
