Calpine Corporation

Calpine Corporation is the largest independent power producer in the U.S.,
with a fleet of 93 power generation plants representing more than 28,000
megawatts of generation capacity. Last year our plants generated more than 94
million megawatt hours of power for our wholesale customers in 20 states and
Canada. Our 91 operating plants as well as two under construction consist
primarily of natural gas-fired and renewable geothermal power plants that use
advanced technologies to generate power in a low-carbon and environmentally
responsible manner. Our modern, clean, efficient and cost-effective fleet
stands ready to respond to the increased need for cleaner and more affordable
power as the economy recovers, as new environmental rules are implemented and
force older, dirtier plants to retire or reduce generation, as variable
renewable power generation from wind and solar grows and with it the need for
flexible natural gas generation to assure firm supply to the grid, and
finally, as natural gas becomes economically competitive with coal as a fuel
for power generation. Please visit to learn more about why
Calpine is a generation ahead - today.
