The Robert W Scherer Power Plant is a coal-fired power plant in Juliette, Georgia, just north of Macon, Georgia, in the United States. The plant has four units, each producing 880 megawatts. The plant is named after the former chairman and chief executive officer of Georgia Power. It has two 1,001-foot (305 m) chimneys, the first built in 1982 and the second in 1986. Based on data as of 2018, Plant Scherer is the fourth-largest electric generating plant in the United States, the largest to be fueled exclusively by coal, and the #1 emitter of Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions in the U.S., at over 20 million tons per year.
