Hydro Generation


We’ve long championed the development of hydroelectric infrastructure in Canada and around the world. As a vital source of clean electricity, offering reliable baseload generation and dispatch (back-up) control, we believe it’s an important part of the renewable energy fuel mix of the future.

Pincher Creek, Alberta

The Oldman River Hydro Plant is a 32 megawatt (MW) run-of-river project in southern Alberta, commissioned in 2003. The facility is jointly owned by ATCO and the Piikani Nation – one of 35 Indigenous partnerships we are privileged to foster across Canada. Power generated at the plant meets the needs of up to 25,000 households.

In late 2017, ATCO acquired Electricidad del Golfo (EGO) Hydro and its 35 megawatt (MW) hydroelectric power station in the state of Veracruz, Mexico – an exciting new addition to our growing global renewable energy portfolio.
