The Mount Storm Power Station, located on the west bank of Mount Storm Lake 2 miles (3 km) from Bismarck, West Virginia, is a coal-fired power station owned by Dominion Resources. It is the largest power plant that Dominion operates. Mt. Storm's three units can generate more than 1,600 megawatts of electricity from coal synfuel, although these units can also run on distillate fuel oil. Mount Storm also includes Nedpower which is a nearby wind farm with 132 wind turbines. The wind turbines generate enough electricity to power 66,000 homes.
