Mountain Creek Generating Station

Mountain Creek Generating Station

Mountain Creek Generating Station is owned by Exelon Power, a business unit of Exelon Generation. It is a 3-unit, 805 megawatt (MW) fossil power plant located in Dallas, Texas.

Mountain Creek provides electricity to customers in the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) during periods of peak demand.  Its first hydrogen-cooled natural gas unit was built in 1945 and generates 33 MW of electricity.  The original air-cooled generator, which was built in 1938, produced 34.5 MW but is now retired.

Emergency Planning

Mountain Creek employs sophisticated emergency response plans to protect public health and safety.  These plans are reviewed and approved by state governments and regulatory agencies.  The emergency planning includes coordination with local counties, municipalities and school districts.

Supporting the Local Economy

The majority of Mountain Creek’s  41 Exelon employees live in Dallas County. The station’s annual payroll is about $3.3 million.

Community Involvement

Mountain Creek aims to be a good neighbor and is very active in the local community.

  • Sponsorship.  The power plant sponsors several community events including Dallas National Earth Day, Dallas/Ft. Worth National Cemetery Veterans & Memorial Day Parade, and Operation Warm – Dallas Coat Give-Away.
  • Charitable Giving & Volunteering.  Mountain Creek employees give generously to the community through a variety of charitable activities including the local United Way chapters and United Negro College Fund (UNCF).
