Morro Bay

The Morro Bay stacks.

In February of 2014, Dynegy Energy, the current owners of the power plant in Morro Bay, concluded that future revenues were not worth the cost of upgrades, and so the plant was closed. But the stacks remain.

Many have asked and debated weather the stacks should be demolished. Most locals say, "NO!" Three Stacks and A Rock is who Morro Bay is. Here is a fun before and after rendering. I gotta say, to me, the stacks are iconic in a post-modern, industrial-meets-nature way.
