The shuttered Navajo Generating Station coal plant near Page is getting (shown above) new life, as former Arizona state Senator and SkyMall founder Bob Worsley plans to create a modular-home factory at the site.

The coal plant and nearby mine that fueled it closed in 2019, leaving a massive hole in the region’s economy as hundreds of jobs vanished. The new factory will bring sorely needed economic development to the area.

The former power plant is mostly demolished, but Worsley plans to use one of the remaining buildings on the site for ZenniHome, a small-house company he has launched.

He planned to manufacture the homes in China and ship them to the U.S., but has struck a deal with the Navajo Nation to use the power plant site, where he says he initially can hire about 100 people.
