Luminant, a subsidiary of Energy Future Holdings, formerly TXU Corp., is the largest competitive power generation business in Texas. Our activities include plant and mine, wholesale marketing and trading, and development operations.
With Texas roots that stretch back over 125 years, we have played an integral role in the evolution, growth and progress of Texas, and today we are helping power one of the world’s largest electric markets. We are proud to provide reliable, affordable electricity to Texas consumers as we set new standards in environmental stewardship and innovation that will result in cleaner air, water and land. This mission requires thousands of dedicated employees and investment of billions of dollars in infrastructure and development.
Luminant has more than 15,400 megawatts of capacity, including 2,300 MW fueled by nuclear power and 8,000 MW fueled by coal. Almost 2,200 MW of our coal generation are new baseload units, equipped with advanced environmental controls. With a portfolio of more than 700 MW of wind power, we are also one of the largest purchasers of wind-generated electricity in Texas and the nation.
Few businesses have devoted more money, time and effort to the social and economic development of Texas than Luminant has. Besides massive new investment, our day-to-day operations generate billions of dollars of economic impact across Texas. Generous corporate contributions multiply the benefit, while our employees remain the go-to people when the communities where they live, work and serve need help.
