Power Up! The evolution of WPS in Lincoln County Exhibit is now open. This exhibit will be ending in January, 2020, with a portion remaining as semi-permanent. Thank you WPS Foundation for funding this exhibit. Due to the poor weather on opening day and construction on the Grandfather Dam facilities, we have worked out a bus tour for April, 2020, that will include a powerhouse tour and photo ops. Watch for more details in March - reservations will be required.
