Natural gas serves as a bridge to a clean energy future, giving off less than half of the carbon emissions of coal when burned
Grande Prairie Generating Station is owned and operated by Constellation. Grand Prairie is a one-unit, 105-megawatt (MW) natural gas-fueled electric generation facility located 250 miles northwest of Calgary in Grande Prairie, Alberta, Canada, and is Constellation’s only generating asset in Canada. The station's single turbine is powered by natural gas utilizing state-of-the-art emissions controls and is used to meet western Canada's peak energy demand periods.
Constellation takes a safety-first approach in our culture and business practices. All Constellation generation facilities employ sophisticated emergency response plans to protect public health and safety. Plans are reviewed and approved by state governments and federal regulatory agencies. Emergency planning includes coordination with local and municipal officials, as well as thousands of volunteers and first responders.
To protect the safety and health of our employees, contractors, customers, and communities, we've implemented a number of initiatives to promote safe behaviors both on and off the job. These include a safety behavior observation program and focused initiatives on areas of high risk. We offer safety training, which is integrated with leadership development programs for supervisors and managers, as well as new employee orientation. Finally, a safety peer group identifies successful pilot programs or new practices that can then be adopted by the entire organization.
