Cavalier Energy Centre and Balzac Facility

Natural gas powered

The Cavalier Energy Centre and the Balzac Facility are part of a larger generation portfolio intended to help meet the growing electricity needs of our customers across Alberta. ENMAX Energy Corporation's generation strategy is focused on growing our fleet of natural gas-fuelled facilities, as they are more efficient and lower GHG emitting than existing coal-fired plants in Alberta.

Cavalier Energy Centre

Acquired in 2014 by ENMAX Energy Corporation through its subsidiaries, the Cavalier Energy Centre is a 120 megawatt (MW) natural gas-fuelled facility, located near Strathmore, Alberta. ENMAX Energy is the operator of this facility.

Balzac Facility

ENMAX Energy through its subsidiaries owns a 50 per cent interest in a 120 MW gas-fuelled plant in Balzac, Alberta, which it jointly owns with Nexen Inc. Nexen is the operator of the Balzac facility.

All customers are free to purchase natural gas services from the default supply provider or from a retailer of their choice and to purchase electricity services from the regulated rate provider or from a retailer of their choice. The delivery of natural gas and electricity to you is not affected by your choice. If you change who you purchase natural gas services or electricity services from, you will continue receiving natural gas and electricity from the distribution company in your service area. For a current list of retailers you may choose from, visit www.ucahelps.gov.ab.ca or call 310-4822 (toll free in Alberta).
