I know of a couple.

In Maryland, the Dickerson Generating Station, which is privately owned
and uses coal and oil is directly adjacent to the Montgomery County
Resource Facility, which is owned by the state and burns trash.

The reverse situation gould, I guess, be illustrated with something like
Maryland's Chalk Point Generating Station, where there are multiple
generators some distance away from each other.  It's pretty clear in this
case, though, that they're all part of the same facility, so I don't know
how illustrative it might be as an example.
