Expectations were high when TNP-One was powered-up between Bremond and Calvert. With construction in 1988 and 1989, an influx of temporary workers and some locals built the two-generation units. These 175 MW power generation units were brought into service in 1990 and 1991. In operation some 25 years, many Robertson County residents have been working in the one hundred or so good jobs that this power plant and its coal mine provide within thirteen miles of Hearne. In the shadow of this new facility, an ambitious housing subdivision was planned.
