ENMAX reports financial results for third quarter

/ Calgary

​ENMAX Corporation (ENMAX) today announced its financial results for the three months ending on September 30, 2014. Net earnings from continuing operations for the third quarter were $37.3 million, up from $20.7 million in the third quarter of 2013, due to greater availability of electricity from power purchase arrangements compared to last year and strong earnings on the regulated transmission and distribution business.

"ENMAX continues to focus on serving our customers across Alberta," said Gianna Manes, ENMAX President and CEO. "I am proud of the dedication and perseverance of our ENMAX team as we faced unique weather and system events this quarter, and each time effectively restored power to Calgarians as quickly and safely as possible."


  • Shepard Energy Centre construction remains on time and budget with a scheduled operational date of early 2015. 
  • Expansion of our generation portfolio with purchase of the 115 megawatt (MW) Cavalier plant in Strathmore and a 50 per cent interest in the 110 MW Balzac plant.
  • Continued to meet the milestones on the East Calgary Transmission Project that are critical to the integration of the Shepard Energy Centre into the provincial grid.
  • To meet the needs of a growing Calgary, ENMAX Power is on track to invest approximately $200 million in its transmission and distribution system in 2014.
  • Supported our communities including Habitat for Humanity in Edmonton and the Calgary United Way, where our 2014 record-breaking campaign raised $600,000.
