It's not because you didn't see pictures online that no explorers have been there. Big places like powerstations, people want to keep them off the radar.
Yep. They can be done, sometimes even without scouting and only a few rumors of what's in store. You may have to go at night, and it may take hours to sneak past security (electronic, guards, or both), but rarely is a powerplant so heavily secured that access is impossible if you're patient and determined enough.
That being said, most explorers will not post what they find or even acknowledge the location's existence. Decommissioned powerplants are the kind of critical infrastructure that probably tends to make local cops... tense
about trespassing- especially since they often operate under a different set of trespassing laws. Not to mention the likelihood of a scrapper wrecking the place if they find it.
Power plants are a high risk, high reward explore where the risk only grows exponentially if it ever ends up online.
