Description: The growth of our economy is demanding construction of a variety of power plants to generate electricity which is having a significant impact on the visual environment. These power plants will consist of conventional thermal (fossil fuel and nuclear), geothermal, wind and solar power plants. There are several areas where solutions to the visual impacts of these power plants can be effectively addressed - site selection, site planning, and cooperative research towards alternative design. In resolving the visual impacts of power plants and the visual resource, we as professionals and managers must be prepared to evaluate a variety of power plant types and a multitude of conflicts which will exist between the visual resource and other resource concerns.
