Marquette, WI -- The official groundbreaking of the Marquette Energy Center took place mid-June. This energy center will make Marquette energy independent.
"There's a lot happening in Marquette," said Paul Kitti, executive director of Marquette Board of Light and Power. "Marquette is not sitting idly by, we're planning for the future and this is a great day for our city."
Marquette Board of Light and Power studied and planned for this energy center for years before breaking ground.
"It allows the city of Marquette to generate its own power at cost and provides an investment back into the community," explained Church Beitel, VP and Project Director of Sargent & Lundy.
The center will be energy efficient and have 3 engines that will produce 52MW of power. They will be environmentally clean reciprocating internal combustion engines.
"This is going to provide great, reliable power for decades to come. You couple that with the city's great water resources and infrastructure, sewer, and everything else - Marquette is really a place to land," said Kitii.
