MGE, Wisconsin Energy May Buy State Plants

MGE Energy Inc. (NasdaqGS:MGEE) and Wisconsin Energy Corp. (NYSE:WEC) have formed a joint venture that will consider bidding for state-owned power and heating plants. MGE and Wisconsin evaluate the advisability and feasibility of potentially bidding on generating assets owned by the State of Wisconsin, which might include the University of Wisconsin's interest in the UW-Madison's West Campus Cogeneration Facility, which MGE co-owns and operates. Should the State determine that the assets should be sold, the joint venture would decide on a case-by case basis whether to submit a bid. If the bid is successful, the joint venture would finance the acquisition and would own and manage the acquired assets. If those acquired assets include the State's interest in the West Campus Cogeneration Facility, Madison Gas would continue to operate those assets as it does currently.
