Our Brands in West Virginia
Vistra is a leading Fortune 275 integrated retail electricity and power generation company that combines an innovative, customer-centric approach to retail with safe, reliable, diverse, and efficient power generation.
Luminant is one of the largest competitive power generation businesses in the country with a diverse portfolio of natural gas, nuclear, coal, solar, and energy storage facilities across 12 states.
We believe in the power of competition to spark innovation and unleash customer benefits and value.
As such, we believe that markets should be allowed to function freely with minimal oversight and regulated only to the extent needed to ensure a fair and equitable treatment of market participants and customers.
We believe that the competitive market works best without outside interference. Out-of-market subsidies run counter to a well-functioning competitive electricity market.
We recognize, however, that it is not always possible to avoid subsidies for various policy or political reasons. Therefore, should subsidies be implemented, we believe that such subsidies should be targeted, technology neutral, time limited and phased out as the rationale for the subsidized item becomes obsolete.
We understand that the generation methods of today will not always be the generation methods of tomorrow. We believe in pursuing economic and appropriate opportunities to integrate new generation technologies and approaches into the grid.
We further believe that in competitive areas, such technologies or approaches should be backed by private investment and not subject to market distorting mandates or public subsidization.
We believe that coal, natural gas, nuclear and other “traditional” electric generation facilities continue to have a role to play in generating safe, reliable and secure power to customers.
We believe these facilities operate best in competitive markets as part of a broad generation portfolio.
We believe in operating our company and facilities in a clean and environmentally friendly manner. As such, we will always comply with existing environmental regulations.
We further believe that any new environmental laws and regulations should be targeted, based on sound science, and that their costs be commensurate with the benefits obtained. Environmental reporting should be based on actual measured data, consolidated as much as possible and should not create an undue compliance burden.
