Alabama Power’s newest generating unit, Plant Barry Unit 8, is now operating and serving customers across the state.

“It’s a very special day for our team and a historic day for our company,” Alabama Power President and CEO Jeff Peoples said as the unit began operations Nov. 1. “I am so proud of our team and their dedication to providing safe, reliable power for communities across the state.”

Barry 8 can generate up to 727 megawatts (MW), which is enough energy to power more than 200,000 homes. The state-of-the-art combined cycle unit pairs a gas turbine and steam turbine to generate electricity.
