Government and Regulatory Affairs

Government and Regulatory Affairs

Throughout the halls of government in Washington, D. C., and in the states comprising our core markets, Calpine is a leading voice in the power industry. As America’s largest generator of electricity from natural gas and geothermal resources, we bring an informed perspective to public policy discussions on the state and national levels. Our Government and Regulatory Affairs representatives have become trusted as experts on important issues that affect electric reliability and economics.

We advocate for fair and well-structured competitive power markets and environmentally responsible regulation – issues vital to building a clean and sustainable future. For example, we support the following U.S. Environmental Protection Agency initiatives:

  • Clean Power Plan
  • Cross-State Air Pollution Rule
  • Mercury and Air Toxic Standards
  • National Ambient Air Quality Standards
  • Regional Haze Rule
