Good employer, great benefits and salary
Power Engineer (Current Employee) –  Genesee, AB27 October 2017
Cleanest coal fired power plant I've ever seen. They're coal-fired so it's bound to be dusty and hot, but they employ a cleaning team who do a great job.

The pay scales there are great, the benefits are solid, and they treat people like people.

Progressive and growing company
Manager, Business Operations (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB4 November 2013
Capital Power was a company which was spun off from EPCOR Utilities. Capital Power was a new company in a sense it allowed employees to learn and set the precedent of standards and procedures in their areas. As an employee you had the opportunity to excel if you took it!
Pros
Benefits were great!
Cons
Work life balance was not always balanced, as workload was heavy!

Alberta based utility company with assets in Ontario and Northeastern US
Renewable Energy Trader (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB25 April 2013
The head office is based out of Edmonton, Alberta, with trading and back and middle office functions based out of Calgary, AB. The office in Calgary has around 100-150 staff.

The most recent position that I managed was trading a book of REC assets (port opt and spec) and managing the NOx/SO2 compliance for US assets.

The most challenging part of this opportunity was convincing an Alberta utility company of the potential of the US climate markets. I spent alot of the time explaining the product and not the strategy.

The people at Capital Power are very talented and knowledgeable about the Western power markets (PACNW, California and Alberta).
