The Generation Services Business Unit is dedicated to clean, reliable, and low-cost energy for our 12 participating public power communities and districts. We manage seven power plant sites with a capacity of 796 megawatts – including geothermal steam, hydroelectric and natural gas-fired facilities. Taken together, NCPA’s portfolio is approximately 55% emission-free. NCPA’s Generation Services is responsible for state of the art operations and asset management of NCPA plants – which is vital to providing stable and reliable energy supplies to public power communities throughout Northern and Central California.
In addition to the facilities we operate, NCPA is leading the way in growing our renewable energy investments through the establishment of a new Green Pool where our members collectively contract for a diverse mix of renewable resources. The Green Pool will promote the market for renewable projects – and assure clean generation for our member communities.
Like the communities and districts we serve, NCPA’s Generation Services Unit is always striving to apply innovative new technologies and practices to promote the economy and protect our environment.
