    Energy is a vital commodity for homes, schools, hospitals, offices and factories. It can literally save lives. Millions of people and hundreds of businesses count on us for safe, reliable, reasonably priced energy. This is a big responsibility. It’s why we do the work we do.

    Our company powers the quality of life in other ways, too. This includes economic development and community improvement, support of waste reduction and energy conservation programs, volunteerism and corporate philanthropy. All of these and more are reflected in our ap­proach to sustainability.
