Review and Commentary Regarding Springfield Planning Analysis


Synapse conducted a technical and economic review of planning studies and analysis made by the City Water, Light and Power (CWLP) of Springfield, IL and its subcontractors, including Burns & McDonnell, regarding the future of CWLP’s coal-fired electric generating units Dallman 31/32. The Synapse team, led by Dr. Vitolo, found that the operation of these units lost the city at least $41 million between 2008 and 2013, and that the prudent course of action for CWLP would be to prepare for their imminent retirement.
