Encina Power Plant: a piece of art?


The Encina Power Station was built in 1954 and was once the region’s major source of electricity. The NRG owned power station is planned to be decommissioned and removed over the next years.

The 400 ft. smokestack can be seen from miles away and serves as a beacon welcoming Carlsbad residents home and tourists back.

What if the NRG power station was removed, but the smokestack was left behind? What could it represent?
