Canada’s Largest Producer Of Wind Energy
TransAlta’s renewable energy commitment began more than one hundred years ago when the company built the first hydro assets in Alberta, Canada. We still operate those hydro plants today. In 2002, we acquired our first wind farm and have grown wind electricity generation to power over 800,000 homes across North America. In 2015, we acquired our first solar farm, adding to our diversified mix of renewable energy.
As part of our ongoing commitment to securing value for investors from renewable energy, TransAlta Renewables (RNW) was launched in 2013 by its parent company TransAlta Corporation. Long-term contracted TransAlta Corporation renewable assets were transferred in to RNW.
As of 2017, TransAlta is powering the equivalent of over 800,000 homes with renewable energy. With a mix of hydro, wind, gas and solar assets and a commitment to innovation, TransAlta will complete its clean power transition by 2025.
