Base Load Power Plants


“Do some power plants require a minimum supply of energy?”


Power plants kept the infrastructure of the old energy paradigm running. And many of these required a constant load to run, giving the name Base Load Power Plants. These plants would only be turned off for maintenance or upgrades. Examples include nuclear plants, coal-fired power plants, and tidal power plants.
