"Tracy Power plant" From westbound California Zephyr.
Tracy Power plant : the largest generating plant built in northern Nevada since Sierra Pacific completed the second unit at the Valmy Generating Station in 1985, also effectively adds 50% more capacity to the Sierra Pacific grid, taking it from 1,029 MW to 1,543 MW. The addition makes northern Nevada virtually energy self-sufficient and immune to volatile out-of-state power purchase costs. In 2006, SPR generated only 43% of its power needs and imported the remainder from out-of-state power suppliers through long-term contracts and periodic purchases on the spot market.
