Environment

Because we believe in energy solutions for today and tomorrow

While reliable electricity supports Albertans' quality of life, ENMAX also recognizes that we need to make, market and move electricity in an environmentally responsible way.

We work to encourage respect for the environment as a key value among employees, to promote environmental awareness in the community and to enhance our own corporate environmental practices. Air emissions, urban wetlands and soils management are our primary areas of environmental focus.

Our corporate responsibility objective for environment is to reduce the greenhouse gas footprint of our generation portfolio.

ENMAX makes a fine birdhouse

For over two decades, ENMAX Power has provided nesting platforms for osprey around Calgary so that they have a safe alternative to building their nests on power poles and equipment.

And now, some other members of the bird community have been learning that ENMAX can be a great host.

The Future is bright

By the end of 2016, 50 per cent of Alberta’s solar capacity had been installed through ENMAX Energy’s solar program. This included Canada’s largest commercial rooftop solar installation, a 1.14 MW system on the Leduc Recreation Centre, and the 1 MW system helping to power the fun at the Camrose Recreation Centre.

   



Two is greater than one

ENMAX installed on energy source to do two jobs at the City of Calgary’s Village Square Leisure Centre. The 800-kilowatt combined heat and power (CHP) unit creates electricity on site from natural gas and captures runoff heat that is typically wasted to help warm the recreation centre and wave pool. The system is expected to save the facility 11 per cent annually in utility costs.

Visit the City of Calgary website for more information on CHP at Village Square.
