The plant is named for J.F. Maddox, who was founder, chairman, president and general manager of New Mexico Electric Service Company. Maddox Station is the only major plant in the southwestern region not built by the company. It was acquired from New Mexico Electric Service Company in 1983.
Maddox Unit 3 is used in emergency situations only, so its net dependable capacity is listed at zero megawatts.
Maddox Station is a zero discharge plant; no process waters are discharged from the plant site. Cooling water from Maddox is reused for crop irrigation.
Plant employees support and are involved with the United Way, Boys/Girls Club, Hobbs Fire Department and Hobbs schools.
