New Electricity Generator Building


The coal power plant the author has in mind is a relatively new small single 50 megaWatt unit located in a rural portion of a Northern Midwest state.



Few coal power plants are as dirty and as ugly as environmentalists like to portray.


Footnotes & Links

Generator buildings are clearly defined by local and national building and electrical codes, supplemented by constraints from the relevant equipment manufacturers, and, in the case of powering the electric generators from a nuclear reactor, the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

At first, your author thought that simply converting coal burning boilers to submarine-like steam generators would be a fast and cheap way to decarbonize the generation of electricity. 

Not so, as this paper points out:  The Hook-ons.pdf
