The Delaware Nature Society is big on plants, so it makes sense that it would arrange a tour of Calpine Energy in Edgemoor, Delaware, which operates several large electric generating plants. This tour took place on Thursday, October 24, 2019. Posting these the next day, I am quite happy with them. I went for pleasing rather than documentary post-processing of these images, all of which were taken with a Nikon D850 camera and a 24mm wide-angle lens.
As recently as 2010, these plants burned coal, coal crushed to a fine dust, but now burn natural gas, significantly reducing emissions and railroad traffic. Some of the generators can burn fuel oil if necessary.
