Energy exists to help people. Without it, your morning would be different without a charged phone, hot water, stove, or television. All these things depend on natural gas, electricity, or oil.


Challenges are ahead in reliably providing energy to a growing world while minimizing the impact on the environment.

“I wanted to work in the electric utility because of out constant need for electricity and its extreme importance in our daily lives. I like it because it constantly keeps you on your toes with new policies, procedures, and equipment. It takes great teamwork throughout our company and industry to adjust these changes in order to keep the lights on. It is very rewarding to have a small role in this, and by doing so, improving the lives of over 600,000 members in Alabama and northwest Florida.”
