Rio Tinto - Kennecott Power Plant

Most people have not learned to appreciate the skill and effort provided by individuals like Jim Marquez (a 47 year veteran of the power plant) and many others as they manipulate the technology and resources that go into creating the electrical power that we all take for granted. In this Rio Tinto power plant coal and natural gas fuel the boilers that produce the steam necessary to drive steam turbine generators. The power plant has the capacity to generate 175 megawatts of electricity with a transmission voltage of 44,000 volts - enough power to supply the needs of 200,000 average homes.
