Holly Power Plant

Holly Street, 512/505-7800
Big, loud, and ugly. (Plus it smells bad.) First fired up in 1960, Holly currently runs at about half of its 540 megawatt capacity and produces roughly one-tenth of the city's power. In response to community complaints, this stinkin' behemoth is due to be shut down in 2005.
