Our mission is to acquire and operate critical electric assets in major urban markets in the Northeast and Midwest, improving reliability and resilience and decarbonizing the grid by adding storage, electric vehicle charging infrastructure, and renewable capabilities.


Our vision is to facilitate hyper-decarbonization goals by integrating and demonstrating proven technological advances such as battery storage at our plants that facilitate the transition to lower carbon generation while maintaining the reliability and resilience that is needed in or near urban centers. 


We are guided by a set of core values that shape our behavior and decision-making including partnership, transparency, leadership, environmental consciousness, integrity and simply doing the right thing. Our top priority is the safety of our employees, contractors, vendors and the public we serve.

Deliver Excellence
We work hard and dedicate ourselves to excellence in everything we do, combining decades of experience with innovative thinking.

Collaboration and Cooperation
We will only achieve our goals through collaboration and teamwork, including with the governors and mayors in the states where we operate and the utility companies that serve these states. We’re committed to helping the communities and companies we partner with by working together. We celebrate individual accomplishments at USGRDCO while recognizing that no single person is bigger than the team. We are stronger together.

We are in it for the long run
We build high-quality assets and plan for long-term service and a net-zero carbon future.

Personal Team Development
We hire the best and provide an environment that fosters personal development and professional growth.
