Brandon was originally powered by four coal-fired generators. A fifth 105 MW coal-fired unit was added in 1970. The original 4 units were taken offline in 2001 and two 140 MW combustion gas turbines were added. The final coal-fired generator was retired in 2018 and is now used as a synchronous condenser.[2]
