Calpine Corporation

Calpine Corporation is America’s largest generator of electricity from natural gas and geothermal resources. Because we use clean fuel and renewable resources, Calpine also ranks among the cleanest power generators in the nation. Through wholesale power operations and our retail business, Champion Energy, we serve customers in 21 states and Canada. We specialize in developing, constructing, owning and operating natural gas-fired and renewable geothermal power plants that use advanced technologies to generate power in a low-carbon and environmentally responsible manner. Our clean, efficient, modern and flexible fleet is uniquely positioned to benefit from the secular trends affecting our industry, including the abundant and affordable supply of clean natural gas, stricter environmental regulation, aging power generation infrastructure and the increasing need for dispatchable power plants to successfully integrate intermittent renewables into the grid.
