Raton Power Plant is a coal-fired power station owned and operated by Raton Public Service Company in Raton, New Mexico.

The Raton Power Plant stopped generating electricity in February 2006 after the coal source dried up and RPS was unable to find any other sources at similar prices, according to owner Raton Public Service Company.[1]
