The Hew Power Plant. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 16 February 1900
The New Power Plant. Work on the new power plant, which is being put up by the Standard Electric Co. on the Mokelumne river, two miles up the stream from the site of the old plant, is now under way and the job will probably be finished about the first of next year. The new plant will be at least double the capacity of the first one, and have almost unlimited water power. The road between the old and the new plant was completed a short time ago at a cost of from ten to twelve thousand dollars. It is one of the finest pieces of wagon road in the State. There is some talk of the old plant being used again, as the scorched dynamos can be rewound and a temporary shed erected at a nominal cost. In case this is done, Jackson and vicinity will be supplied with electricity for lighting purposes from the old plant, and the supply now received from Angels Camp will be discontinued.
