English Station is an abandoned thermal power plant. It occupies eight acres of land on Ball Island in the Mill River. It was constructed from 1924 to 1929. The plant operated as a coal- and oil-fired power plant for United Illuminating until it stopped electricity-generating operations in 1991.
The site, which United Illuminating sold in 2000, is known to be heavily contaminated with asbestos and PCBs. In 2013, the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection mandated its owners clean the site of environmental pollutants.
