Oneida Street Power Plant

This facility, formerly known as the Oneida Street Power Plant, served from 1918-1920 as the pilot plant in the United States for the development and use of finely-pulverized-coal firing in the boilers of steam-electric power plants. The results of the Oneida experiences were new and improved elements of boiler design and lower costs of power generation.
