About the Virtual Tour
Most likely, you've never had an opportunity to tour the inside of a power plant. Still, if you've ever wondered how the electricity you use in your home or office is actually created, this is the place to learn. A simple click of the mouse will take you on a guided tour of a combustion-fueled power plant, from the comfort of your own chair. Start your tour by selecting any of the numbered icons to view specific operations and examine each phase at your own pace. Or simply select Grand Tour to view the phases of energy production from start to finish. Either way, you'll see the entire process as fuel and hot exhaust gases are converted into the electricity we depend on everyday. You'll even learn how emissions of carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxide are removed from gases that are returned to the atmosphere. Enjoy your tour.
