Intermountain Power Plant

The Intermountain Power Plant is a large 1900MW coal-fired power plant in Delta, Utah, curiously operated by the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power.  It's a joint venture between a number of utilities in both California and Utah, and as LA is probably the largest consumer, they get to run it.

There's a modern 500kV DC power line connecting this power plant with the Calfornia market.

Although this is perhaps the 20th largest coal power plant in the US, there are 115 bigger than this in China today.
