Plant Harllee Branch is a coal-fired power station near Milledgeville, Georgia, USA. The power plant is owned and operated by Georgia Power. It is named after Harllee Branch Jr., president of Georgia Power.

The power plant has one of the tallest chimneys in the world (1001 feet), built in 1978. The chimney stands 1001 ft tall, and is visible, on clear days, up to approximately 10 to 20 miles away. Many boaters use the chimney to navigate Lake Sinclair, because the power plant is located at Hwy 441, and is a central point on the lake.
