The Pulliam Power Plant site, at the mouth of the Fox River in Green Bay, WI, is home to two fossil-fueled electric generating units that make electricity for WPS customers. The site is named after one of the company's former presidents. Originally there were 8 units. Six have been retired and are no longer operating. The two operating units are fueled using low sulfur coal. Together, the units are capable of producing 231.2 megawatts of electricity. Pulliam Unit 7 began operating in 1958 and Pulliam Unit 8 in 1964.

There is also a natural gas fueled combustion turbine at Pulliam. It runs during times of peak energy demand and began operating in 2003.

A number of environmental updates have been made at Pulliam.

  • 2009 and 2010: Equipment installation to reduce nitrogen oxide (NOx) on Units 7 and 8. NOx contributes to acid rain, ozone and fine particulate emissions.
  • 2015: Activated Carbon System along with Dry Sorbent Injection added on Unit 7 and Unit 8 to capture mercury before it is released into the environment.
