Flexible and Reliable

Flexible Hay Road Name

Calpine’s flexible power generation capability helps keep electricity flowing reliably to homes and businesses across America. Our operations and maintenance expertise translates into strong availability factors across our fleet, demonstrating our commitment to providing customers with reliable service.

Our clean-burning, natural-gas-fired plants help integrate intermittent renewables into the power grid by quickly ramping up or scaling back production. On the East Coast, our dual-fuel plants maintain reliability and efficiency by running on ultra-low-sulfur diesel fuel when market conditions warrant, and our black-start plants stand ready to bring the grid back online in emergencies. At a time when the nation’s power grid operators are increasingly focused on reliability – and are more directly linking generators’ economics to their operating performance – our reliable fleet offers a distinct advantage.

When our customers need us, we are there to provide power, capacity and ancillary services customized to their businesses and their regions.
