Palo Verde Nuclear Power Station

Arizona

50 miles west of Phoenix sits the biggest nuclear electricity generating plant in the US. Notice the three round containment buildings where water is superheated driving steam turbine generators housed in the square buildings next to the reactors. Missing are the traditional cooling towers; three giant blowers per plant dissipate the heat.
