    Look:

    Original Hiwasse Dam Unit 1 Turbine

    Okay, yeah it is a hydroelectric turbine, but it still really put 80,000 HP to the generator it was hooked up to for 60 years. Here's the plaque to prove it:

    Wow that like not impressive at all!
    Look at it this way. Most personal generators have a 5 hp motor. So say a generator that supplied electricity to say Las Vegas is probably gonna have a few pony's behind it.
