Hydro

TransAlta’s first power generation assets were hydroelectric facilities built in Alberta. Many continue to operate today, delivering clean, renewable power.

TransAlta has more than 100 years of experience in hydro generation. Our Horseshoe facility in Alberta, commissioned in 1911, is still running today. Our 27 hydro facilities have the capacity to deliver 936 megawatts (MW) of clean energy.
