This Week In History
In 1895, the Consolidated Electric Light Company of Birmingham built this steam plant to generate direct current electric power for the street railway system in Birmingham. Later, surplus steam was sold to heat local businesses and Hillman Hospital. When the subsequent owner, Birmingham Electric Company, merged with Alabama Power Company in 1952, Alabama Power took over operations at the plant. The plant was decommissioned in 2013. Sitting on the edge of Railroad Park, is Powell Avenue Steam Plant.
