At TransCanada, environmental responsibility is about pursuing corporate practices to reduce land disturbance, carbon intensity, energy consumption and water use.
TransCanada invests in building the safest and most efficient facilities to meet the growing demand for energy in the coming decades and to support North America’s balanced energy system.
We produce approximately 6,200 megawatts (MW) of power capacity – enough to power more than six million homes.
More than half of our power generation comes from low and non-emitting sources, that include natural gas, nuclear, solar and wind, such as Cartier Wind Energy, the largest wind farm in Canada, with a generating capacity of 365 MW for Hydro-Quebec.
In addition to wind, TransCanada has also diversified its power-generating portfolio through solar power purchase agreements in Ontario, which have a combined capacity of 76 MW, bringing TransCanada’s investment in its Ontario solar program to more than $450 million.
We’re a key partner in Bruce Power, Canada’s first private nuclear generator, that currently produces 6,200 MW of emission-free electricity, equivalent to more than one quarter of Ontario’s electricity.
We also specialize in building highly efficient natural gas-fired power plants that are helping to replace coal-fired generation in Canada and the United States.
