My Conversation with Fred Larson, Shift Supervisor at Navajo Generating Station

With 41 years operations experience at Navajo Generating Station, Fred Larson, O&M 4 Supervisor, was given the honor of opening the Unit 2 generator breakers for the final time on November 18, 2019, bringing to a close over 4 decades of power generation at NGS.

In our conversation, I asked him about that moment and the atmosphere in the Control Room on that final day of operation in light of his 41 year career at NGS. Grab your favorite beverage and listen in. Along with this website, I have published a new YouTube channel with the same name, Navajo Generating Station Remembered.

-Enjoy!
