Duke Energy’s H.B. Robinson Steam Electric Plant is located in Darlington County along the banks of Lake Robinson. Plant Robinson began operations in 1960 with a singular, 260 MW coal-fired unit. This coal fired unit has been fully retired by Duke Energy as of 2012. Plant Robinson is now a nuclear-powered steam plant that continues to monitor its singular Ash Basin, which is regulated under the CCR rule. You can find the industry-reported data here.
