ENMAX Energy chosen by Government of Canada as electricity supplier in Alberta
ENMAX Energy Corporation (ENMAX) is proud to announce that it has been chosen as the exclusive supplier for the Government of Canada's electricity needs in Alberta until 2021. Just over half of this power will go towards Department of National Defence needs while the remaining portion will support other federally-owned buildings. ENMAX secured the contract following a public tender process.
"We are proud that the Government of Canada has again chosen ENMAX to power their Alberta operations," said Gianna Manes, ENMAX President and CEO. "ENMAX is well-positioned to provide customized solutions and meet the needs of all our customers, whether big or small. In this case, our team developed a cost-effective package that also delivers on the government's long-term renewable energy goals. We look forward to advancing these together."
Since 2001, ENMAX has supplied electricity to the Government of Canada in Alberta and throughout the new term, will also provide a significant number of Renewable Energy Certificates. In particular, about 90 per cent of the overall Department of National Defence electricity requirements will be offset by renewable energy sources. Where possible, ENMAX will also support efficiency programs to help the government meet its overall commitment of offsetting greenhouse gas emissions.
In addition to meeting electricity needs, ENMAX continues to work with the Government of Canada to support their emission reduction goals in Alberta by sharing expertise in renewable energy technologies and engineering services for better energy management.
ENMAX Corporation, through its subsidiaries, makes, moves and sells electricity to residential, small business and large commercial customers and is headquartered in Calgary, Alberta, with offices in Edmonton. ENMAX Power Corporation owns and operates transmission and distribution infrastructure in Calgary and ENMAX Energy Corporation owns diverse electricity generation facilities throughout the province. Since 2007, ENMAX has been named one of Alberta's Top Employers. ENMAX Energy is currently the retailer of choice for both The City of Calgary and The City of Edmonton.
