The fastest animal in the world has returned to We Energies and Wisconsin Public Service (WPS) power plants. In a sure sign of spring, four pairs of peregrine falcons are getting ready to lay eggs and raise their young.

This year, there are cameras livestreaming the endangered species’ nest boxes at three We Energies facilities and one WPS power plant:

Activity at each site will be picking up over the next few weeks. Last year, the first eggs were laid in late March. If all goes well, this year’s class of fluffy falcon fledglings should make their arrival later this spring.

Also coming up this season, you can help We Energies name this year’s chicks in a gold medal- worthy naming contest. We’ll share more details — and updates on each nest box — on X, Facebook and Instagram all season long.

Peregrine falcon program

We Energies and WPS began installing peregrine falcon nest boxes on power plants in the early ’90s. So far, 444 peregrine falcons have hatched at We Energies and WPS facilities — that’s 20% of all peregrine falcons born in Wisconsin.

This program is another way We Energies and WPS are building a bright, sustainable future. From helping endangered animals and restoring natural habitats, to building new solar facilities and reducing carbon emissions, We Energies and WPS are committed to a cleaner future.
