Workers reflect on Oregon’s first and last coal plant. February 2021. Empty Coal cars stretch along the railroad tracks on the flatlands near the Boardman Coal Power Plant, outside Boardman, Oregon. The shadow of the plant's central chimney, now idle, is visible in the foreground.
The Boardman Coal Power Plant was Oregon's first, and last, coal fired power plant. The plant closed its doors for good on October 17, 2020.
