Tenaska has been a leading developer of natural gas-fueled power generating facilities for 30 years, dating back to its first plant in Paris, Texas, which went into operation in 1989. We’ve developed 13 natural gas plants since then – nearly 10,000 megawatts (MW) combined.

Our team is skilled in all aspects of power plant development, as well as design, construction management, financing, operations and management of power generating facilities. The existing fleet of Tenaska plants – all developed by Tenaska – includes seven natural gas plants able to produce 6,500 MW.

The Strategic Development & Acquisitions Group (SDA) also has extensive experience in acquisition of energy assets. Through Tenaska Capital Management, LLC, a stand-alone affiliate, our seasoned professionals have managed the acquisition of more than $6.5 billion of power generating and midstream assets and companies, including 18 natural gas-fueled and dual fuel power plants.  

These power generation assets are located in power markets across the United States, illustrating our deep industry knowledge and ability to create value through a variety of market conditions. In advancing these types of projects, SDA utilizes the resources of the entire Tenaska organization, including the skills and services of affiliate Tenaska Marketing Ventures, one of the top five natural gas marketers in North America.
