The caption for this photograph in our corporate archive reads: “Philo, which began operation in 1924, was the first plant in the world to reheat steam to do double duty in the process of generating electricity. It was the first plant to use steam at a temperature as high as 700 degrees F. and at a pressure as high as 600 pounds per square inch.
