Waupun Correction Central Heating Plant is a coal-fired power station owned and operated by the Wisconsin Department of Corrections in Waupun, Wisconsin. The plant provides power to the Waupun maximum security prison. In March, 2011 it was announced that Waupun boiler would be converted to natural gas. A time line for the conversion was not immediately set. The cost of the conversion was estimated at $7 million by the State of Wisconsin.[1][2]
