Tennessee industrial

Kingston Fossil Plant, commonly known as Kingston Steam Plant, is a Tennessee Valley Authority 1.7 GW coal-burning power plant located in Roane County, just outside Kingston, Tennessee, on the shore of Watts Bar Lake. Begun in 1951, it was the largest coal-fired power plant in the world when completed in 1955. It was built primarily to provide electricity for the nearby Oak Ridge National Laboratory and still utilizes rail service from a nearby Norfolk Southern connection.
