Industrial Process Control Systems Engineer

Job description

The company owns and operates approximately 12.4 GW of power infrastructure in the United States. They produce and sell electricity, capacity, and ancillary services into wholesale power markets in the United States primarily in PJM, ERCOT, and WECC, with their generation fleet principally located in the Mid-Atlantic, Texas, and Montana. While the majority of their power is already generated at zero-carbon nuclear and lower-carbon gas-fired facilities, they are reducing the carbon profile of their wholly owned coal fleet through conversions to lower-carbon fuels and announced deactivations. In addition, they are developing a hyperscale data center campus adjacent to their Susquehanna nuclear plant that will utilize the carbon-free energy that Susquehanna generates.

The company focuses on excellence through safe and efficient operations. They have an inclusive, diverse, respectful, and collaborative workplace, and a strong commitment to innovation, teamwork, and integrity. The company is headquartered in Houston, Texas.
