Abstract: The main objective of this case study is to examine the role a boomtown has played in the transformation of a rural community in Northern Greece. More specifically, the study focuses on researching at the local community level of Foufas Kozani, the economic and social impact of the public electric power corporations (in Greek DEI) plants in nearby Ptolemaida. Examining the role power plants have played in rural non-agricultural development of the research area, the study aims to clarify the extent to which the emergence of a boomtown has altered the profile and the modus vivendi of a nearby rural community.
