Plant Harllee Branch is a coal-fired power station located in southeastern Putnam County, just southeast of Eatonton, Georgia, USA. It is located about halfway between Eatonton and Milledgeville, to the southeast. The power plant is owned and operated by Georgia Power. It is named after Harllee Branch Jr., president of Georgia Power.
The power plant has one of the tallest chimneys in the world, built in 1978. The chimney stands 1,001-foot tall (305 m), and is visible, on clear days, up to approximately 10 to 20 miles (16 to 32 km) away. Many boaters use the chimney to navigate Lake Sinclair, because the power plant is located at US 441, and is a central point on the lake.
