Last Moments of the South Bay Power Plant

Image

After more than half a century the South Bay Power Plant was reduced to rubble in a matter of minutes at 7 a.m February 2, 2013 . The plant converted fossil fuels into electricity from the 1950’s to 2010 when it was decommissioned. It was a prominent feature in the South Bay skyline rising over large mounds of salt. In the place of the monolithic steel structure will be a park opening up the south bay front to the public and the economy.
