Genoa Station #3
Genoa Station #3 (G-3), located on the bank of the Mississippi River about 20 miles south of Dairyland Power Cooperative's La Crosse, Wis., headquarters, was completed in 1969 at a cost of $56 million.
G-3 was named simply because it was the third generating facility to be built in Genoa, Wis. (Genoa #1, now dismantled, and the La Crosse Boiling Water Reactor, shut down in 1987 for economic reasons, were built earlier.)
This super efficient, single unit station has a generating capacity of 379 megawatts of electricity.
Great River Energy, Maple Grove, Minnesota, has a life-of-the-plant agreement with Dairyland to share the output of G-3. Dairyland owns and operates the facility.
