Description

Manchester Street Power Station is located on 12 acres of land on Point Street in Providence. The Post-Modern 1990s addition was added by William D. Warner Architects & Planners. It produces enough electricity to power about 112,000 homes, using natural gas as its fuel. Manchester Street consists of three combined-cycle generating units, which produce electricity and steam for industrial use.
