With its beginnings in Alberta over 100 years ago, TransAlta’s operations now stretch across Canada and are a part of everyday life for many people.
While we invest in energy technologies that advance the responsible use of our resources, coal will continue to be part of our energy mix. Our commitment to repositioning coal continues as we decommission our oldest coal plants in Alberta and commission Keephills 3, North America’s newest and cleanest coal plant.
We have natural gas facilities in Alberta and Ontario with plans to develop a 700 MW natural gas plant at our Sundance, Alberta facility, allowing us to accelerate the retirement of our older coal-fired units.
With our emphasis on renewable sources of energy, we operate hydro sites in Alberta and Ontario, and have recently expanded our hydro capacity in British Columbia with the 19 MW Bone Creek facility.
TransAlta is also Canada’s largest producer of wind energy with sites in Alberta, Ontario, Quebec and New Brunswick. We will continue to expand development into this fuel source.
