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 participates in Alberta’s Green Energy Showcase

ENMAX was proud to participate in Green Energy Doors Open 2017, an annual cross-Canada event offering hands-on learning and access to decentralized energy projects, business, education programs and much more in the ever-evolving green energy space across the country. 

In Edmonton, Decentralized Energy Canada organized the Alberta event with the City of Edmonton as sponsor. 

Two solar projects installed by ENMAX Energy were featured at the event– the Meadows Fire Station, with a 5 kW system that generates about 5,000 kWh; small but important for a facility that operates 24/7. 

The second facility is the Queen Elizabeth Outdoor Pool where a 50 kW system generates about 51,000 kWh; fulfilling approximately half the pool's electrical requirement for its seasonal operations. These two sites were the City of Edmonton's first solar PV installs, under a pilot program for the City, and ENMAX was proud to showcase their success.





ENMAX to add more wind energy to the grid

ENMAX has received Phase 1 approval from the Alberta Utility Commission to add 200 MW of wind-produced energy to the Alberta grid. Our Zephyr Wind Farm Project - approximately 30 km southeast of Taber – will incorporate 50 to 70 turbines, as well as a collector system to gather energy generated by the turbines and channel to a new substation. This Phase 1 approval paves the way for our facility application submission for construction.

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.
