Coolidge Generating Station


Overview

The Coolidge Generating Station is a natural gas-fired power generating station in Coolidge, Arizona. This “simple-cycle” station generates up to 575 megawatts of electricity, enough for 575,000 homes in the state. When consumer demand rises, such as in summer when air conditioning needs spike, the state-of-the-art station can be brought up to peak capacity in roughly 10 minutes.
