The station was converted to oil firing but closed in 1976. The power station has now been demolished.
The wharf used to unload coal is now a Marina for canal and pleasureboats. None of the structure remains, with the majority of the power station site covered by a secure caravan storage depot, golf course and artificial football pitches with the rest of the site now forming part of the Kirkstall Valley Nature Reserve. The major substations adjacent to the former power station still remain, supplying electrical power to much of Burley, Kirkstall, Armley and Bramley.
