McMurdo's power station - View of the generators - 1
McMurdo Station - Antarctica

McMurdo's power station. 6 generators, each capable of generating up to 900 kilowatts, but it isn't a good idea to run them at full capacity.

1 is presently offline (at the time this picture was taken) and 3 can handle the present load, with McMurdo filled to 2/3ds capacity (800 of 1200 people) - which is to say, 3 generators at 600+ kw each, for a total of 1800+ kw. This is old equipment.
