About Us

Beginning as a small, local power company in 1909, we have transformed over the last century to become an experienced and well-respected power generator and wholesale marketer of electricity. With approximately $3 billion in annual revenue, more than $9 billion in assets and operations in three counties, we have proven our worth as a power generator, as a community member and as a solid investment.

Our People. Our Values.



TransAlta has been an industry leader for 100 years; and will lead for 100 more. Through hard work and creativity, we will stay competitive and continue to pioneer innovative ways to deliver reliable, economic and greener electricity to customers for years to come.


We listen, we value other’s perspectives and we treat all equally. Through our words and actions, it is our priority to create both respectful workplaces and working relationships.


We are in this together. We are dedicated to achieving our goals through loyalty to our colleagues, to our customers and to our company.


You can hold us to our word. We are confident and empowered to make decisions that lead our company forward. Our personal commitment is to do what we say we will do.


We act at all times with honesty, fairness and transparency. Integrity is the foundation of our business.


We are committed to the health and safety of our people and those with whom we work. Ensuring our facilities are designed and operated with this in mind is a principle that is important to us. Everyone who touches our business — employee, contractor, service provider — must go home safely. That’s just what we do.


We will lead a clean energy future and strive to enhance the quality of life in the communities and regions we serve.
