Calpine strategically focuses its operations and capital in three regions that comprise the nation’s most robust wholesale power markets.

With 31 operating power plants representing more than 10,000 megawatts of capacity, our East region spans 13 U.S. states and Canada, with concentrations in the Mid-Atlantic and New England markets.  Calpine is expanding its renewable fleet in this region, with two wind farms under advanced development in the state of New York.

Our Texas region includes 13 power plants capable of delivering more than 9,000 megawatts of electricity to the fast-growing Texas market. All of our Texas plants incorporate combined-cycle design, and eight are highly efficient cogeneration facilities that provide steam to industrial customers in addition to producing electricity.

Our West region primarily serves residential, industrial, business and agricultural centers in California. With more than 5,500 megawatts of natural-gas-fired capacity and 725 megawatts of reliable, renewable geothermal capacity, Calpine can produce enough power to fulfill approximately 10 percent of the state’s peak power demand.
