BELOIT, Wis. (WIFR) - Crews continue work on Alliant Energy's $700 million expansion to its Beloit facility.

The project has created more than 1,000 construction jobs since work began last year and is expected to bring a $250 million impact during construction.

The facility now has heat recovery steam generators and crews are now working on installing combustion turbines expected to be complete sometime this year.

Leaders say the goal is to finish all construction by 2020.
