Powering a sustainable future for people and planet

At Capital Power, we’re working to create a brighter world powered by responsible energy. Together, our thermal and renewable assets represent approximately 6,600 MW of generation capacity that is well-positioned to support the low-carbon energy system required for our longevity as a global community.

Our purpose:

To power a sustainable future for people and planet

Our vision:

Electrifying the world reliably and affordably while protecting the planet for future generations

Our values:

  • We manage our impact on the environment to leave a healthy planet.
  • We value equity, diversity and inclusion, listen with open minds, and treat all people with respect.
  • We are committed to safety and wellbeing of our people.
  • We act with integrity and take responsibility for our decisions and actions.
  • We embrace innovation by fostering creativity and harnessing technology.

We’re committed to growing our company to deliver long term value, protect our environment, and help our communities thrive. We have a long history of saying what we’ll do, then doing what we say. We are consistent in executing on our strategy. This effort is reflected in our:

  • Competitive total shareholder returns
  • Numerous recognitions received as a top employer of choice
  • Strong relationships and partnerships throughout our North American communities
  • Commercial relationships as a trusted, reliable and competitive electricity supplier and energy services provider to commercial, large industrial, government and institutional customers in the Canadian and US markets in which we operate
  • Track record and expertise for building projects safely, completing them on time and on budget and operating well-maintained, reliable facilities

We’re laying the groundwork to meet our goal of being net carbon neutral by 2050. Our power generation facilities are a hub of innovation and we are continuously learning, adapting, and developing to create clean, reliable and accessible electricity. We believe a holistic transformation of our energy system requires an “all-of-the-above” solution from our industry —one that expands our use of renewable energy, employs storage technologies to optimize those renewable sources and transitions to lower- and zero-carbon thermal generation with improved efficiency and minimal emissions. We report on our actions and performance, and continue to evaluate and evolve our climate- and ESG -related reporting to clearly demonstrate our vision, purpose, strategy, and value creation.

We are proud of our achievements and confident in our future. Get to know us.
