To be a part of a cleaner, greener Tomorrow

Calpine’s commitment to the environment is fundamental to our corporate philosophy. It defines who we are and how we serve our customers.

Our fleet of renewable geothermal and low-carbon natural gas power plants is among the cleanest in the nation. Our pioneering reclaimed water programs help protect renewable resources and eliminate wastewater discharge. And in Hayward, California, we built the nation’s first power plant subject to a voluntary federal limit on greenhouse gas emissions. These examples demonstrate why Calpine is a generation ahead, today.

Whether you are a student seeking an internship that offers real-world experience, a recent graduate ready to build a rewarding career or a seasoned professional who wants to expand your horizons, Calpine provides meaningful opportunities and challenges.

Our learning and development platforms and educational reimbursement programs enable employees with initiative to explore their own potential in a dynamic and rewarding industry.

About Calpine

Founded in 1984, Calpine Corporation is America’s largest generator of electricity from natural gas and geothermal resources. Our fleet of 84 power plants in operation or under construction represents more than 27,000 megawatts of generation capacity. Through wholesale power operations and our retail business, Champion Energy, we serve customers in 21 states and Canada.

Why Calpine?

Calpine Corporation is America’s largest generator of electricity from natural gas and geothermal resources and is well positioned operationally and financially to take advantage of strategic opportunities for fiscally disciplined growth. As the new economics of modern, efficient, natural gas-fired generation take hold and as environmental imperatives force older coal-fired generation to retire, Calpine’s modern, flexible and reliable fleet stands ready to lead our nation’s march toward a cleaner energy future.
