GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - An electric utility has chosen a site near Kaukauna for a proposed new power plant.  The Wisconsin Public Service Corporation said today (WED) it would seek to build a new plant at the current Fox Energy Center, where an existing unit burns natural gas to create electricity.  The utility said it would also seek bids from other companies for buying power instead of building a plant, depending on whether it's economical.  The utility says a new plant is needed by 2019.
