Delta Electricity is one of the largest capacity electricity generator in the National Electricity Market with an installed capacity of over 4,000 megawatts.
We produce electricity from coal, gas, water and biomass. Formed in 1996, our generators produce around 12% of the electricity needed by consumers in the National Electricity Market, comprising all states and territories except WA and NT.
Delta Electricity also participates in the National Electricity Market trading output from the power stations on the Central Coast. The output from Delta Electricity's western power stations is traded by TRUenergy.
Most of Delta’s generation occurs at five power stations located in NSW. These are Mt Piper and Wallerawang near Lithgow, and Colongra, Vales Point and Munmorah on the Central Coast.
The 667 MW low emission gas turbine power station at Colongra was opened in December 2009 and provides power at times of peak demand - such as very hot summer days and cold winter nights.
Delta is trialling the co-firing of biomass with coal replacing a proportion of coal with a renewable fuel.
Delta Electricity operates under the Energy Services Corporations Act (1995) and the State Owned Corporations Act (1989). As a Government Trading Enterprise, Delta prepares a Statement of Corporate Intent each year.
