     History
    This power station was built in 1929 by Great Western Power Company. After Great Western's 1930 merger with PG&E, the plant was renamed "Station P". Two additional generators were added in 1949 and another in 1958. In 1976 the original turbines and generator in Unit 1 were replaces with aircraft engines and used to provide additional power in peak demand times. The plant was closed in 2004 after decades of pressure from community and environmental groups concerned about the health effects of the plant's outdated technology. Unit 1 was demolished in late 2008
