Callide Power Station uses coal-fired power generation to supply baseload electricity to the national grid via its two sites: Callide B and Callide C. 

The 700 megawatt Callide B Power Station was commissioned in 1988 and since then has continued to supply electricity to our national market. 

In 2001 Callide C Power Station was commissioned, which CS Energy owns Callide C in a 50/50 joint venture with InterGen. Callide C was the first supercritical coal-fired power station in Australia and has a capacity of 825 MW.
