Environmental Stewardship

Petron Energy is dedicated to conducting its business activities with respect and care for the environment as demonstrated in our Operating Principles and Policies. Among Petron Energy's highest corporate priorities is achieving environmental excellence through proactive environmental management.

The foundation of Petron Energy's environmental stewardship forms the basis of human and ecological relationships and demonstrates sound management of social and economic issues. Our actions express our corporate social responsibility toward our employees, business partners, suppliers, customers and communities to care for the natural resources entrusted to us.

  • Energy & Resource Conservation

    Our commitment to protecting the environment and preserving natural resources allows Petron Energy to take an active role in reducing our environmental footprint by participating in industry-wide research and development projects and initiatives.
  • Environmental Sustainability

    Our fleet of modern generation facilities is well-positioned to continue to participate in the growing renewable markets, and our expertise provides a value-added partner for an increasing number of additional participants.
  • Natural Resource Management

    Petron Energy works to satisfy wholesale power demand and commodities trading with a focus on environmental stewardship and proper natural resource management. To meet this challenge, whether building new power plants or maintaining and enhancing existing plants, we implement best practices and participate in national, state and local programs. At Petron Energy, we also partner with agencies to restore and protect wildlife, forests, wetlands and fish.
  • Environmental Protection

    We continue to invest in technology to meet and exceed environmental laws and regulations, as well as our own internal policies. One of those new technologies uses Trona, a naturally-occurring, sodium-based compound with a strong appetite for sulfur dioxide.
  • Education & Community Outreach

    Petron Energy invests time and money to make our communities and the environment better for everyone. We work with schools, community organizations, civic groups and nonprofit organizations to enhance and protect our natural resources. We also work to provide environmental education to the young people in our communities through hands-on projects. Some of the groups we work with include the following.

Our Business

ImageMerchant Energy

Petron Energy reduces risk by managing the spread between the cost of fuel used to operate electric generation plants and the revenue received from the sale of the power produced by those plants, and managing the spread between retail sales commitments and the cost of supply used to service those commitments to ensure stable and known minimum cash flows, and lock in favorable prices and margins when they become available.

Safety First

Petron Energy is absolutely committed to the safety of our employees and our operations. We work hard to ensure that every employee understands our dedication to safety, which is why we identified safety as a critical component of our mission: "To focus on employee safety, environmental protection and our community responsibilities."
