Our DNA | Alabama Power

Working to help elevate Alabama is our commitment

For more than 100 years, Alabama Power has championed progress and innovation across our state. So it should come as no surprise that we’re continuing to work hard to improve life in Alabama. Join us as we celebrate our state’s past accomplishments and work to be a catalyst for future ones.




We built our first hydroelectric facility at Lay Dam in 1914, because creating real energy solutions is in our DNA. See what we’re doing today.





In 1913, we lit up hundreds of homes in Talladega for the first time. See how creating innovative solutions right here at home is still in our DNA.




The most important thing we power:





Since 1913, we’ve supported education in Alabama.

Today, we have it down to a science.




100 years of safe, affordable, reliable electricity.

And we’re just getting warmed up.
