Key Findings

Buying power from Prairie State during the twenty-month period between January  2013 and August 2014, cost PPS and its ratepayers $40 million more than it would have cost to purchase the same amounts of capacity and energy from the MISO wholesale markets.

Moreover, the cost of power from Prairie State is likely to be more expensive than buying power from the competitive MISO wholesale markets beyond 2024.
