Commercial Liability Partners (CLP) purchased the former Dynegy Midwest Generation’s retired coal-fired power plant in East Alton, Illinois in the fall of 2019.

The Wood River Power Plant included two coal-fueled units that began operations in 1954 and 1964. The closure of the site was announced in 2015 and the power station officially ceased operations the following year.

“We are very pleased to take the appropriate steps to remediate the site and redevelop its potential for the community.”
