The Board of Light & Power’s Diesel Plant provided power for Grand Haven and surrounding communities for half a century.

The historic brick building located at 518 S. Harbor Ave. dates back to 1930, and was home to the city’s primary power-generating equipment up until the Sims 1 and 2 plants opened in 1961.
