What's Next? (B/W)
This power plant, built in the 1950s, was closed in 2014. The structure is located on the California coast and, while operating, provided electricity, jobs and, of course, the landmark stacks. Dynegy owns the property. There has been some talk of building a wave energy farm that would transfer power from an offshore facility to the existing transmission lines at the plant. If that scenario doesn't pan out, I would think there should be a way to harness all the energy expended by the local surfers and kayakers. Maybe have them take turns on a treadmill to rotate a generator before going out to surf or kayak. Green.
