Hot Jobs – Crossroads (Southern California Edison)

Huell visits Edison’s Mohave Generating Station near Laughlin, NV to interview utility maintenance worker James Thompson. Thompson’s job involves working in summer time temperatures exceeding 200 degrees Fahrenheit to maintain the plant’s coal-fired boilers. This episode best reflects the pride and dedication of Edison employees towards their job and company. Mohave Generating Station was unique in that it burned coal slurry pumped through pipes from coal mines 275 miles north in Kayenta, AZ. The plant has since been decommissioned and demolished.
