JAMES H. MILLER ELECTRIC GENERATING PLANT
In June 1992, PowerSouth purchased an 8.16-percent ownership interest in units 1 and 2 of Alabama Power Company’s James H. Miller Jr. Electric Generating Plant near Birmingham, Ala. PowerSouth receives 114 megawatts of coal-fired generation from the plant.
At full capacity, the plant can generate about 2.69 billion watts of electricity — enough to serve the needs of about 885,000 homes.
Unit 1 became operational in 1978, unit 2 in 1985, unit 3 in 1989 and unit 4 in 1991. Total generating capacity for the plant’s four units is 2,664 megawatts.
