    Palo Verde Generating Station has been the nation’s largest power producer of any kind for more than 25 years – all of it clean and carbon-free. The plant is a critical asset to the Southwest, generating more than 32 million megawatt-hours annually – enough power for more than 4 million people.  This IES tour will look at how power is generated to create electricity to power the lights we use every day.  We will also be looking at heavy industrial lighting applications such as class 1 div 1 lighting fixtures with the plant manager.
