  8. Benefits of Competitive Power • Independent Power Producers (IPPs) have installed almost 80 percent of all new electric generating capacity in the U.S. • Many states prohibit utilities from building their own generation in order to encourage competition • Competitive procurement is a better way to allocate the risks associated with capital-intensive electric generation projects • An open and competitive market helps determine the best energy supply options • IPPs like Calpine invest with private capital, with earnings based solely on performance (no guaranteed rate of return) • Power generation is our core business: • Experience • Expertise • Economies of scale • Competition leads to lower costs for consumers
