Protecting our resources for the future
Alabama is a beautiful place, with extraordinary natural resources. Protecting those resources while providing reliable, affordable electricity for our customers, is at the heart of our company's mission.
We work to minimize our environmental impact, preserve the environment and strengthen the communities in which we live, work and serve. To help guide us in this effort, we invest in renewable energy, green research and development and eco-stewardship.
As one of the largest managers of land and water resources in the state, we partner with federal, state and local organizations on research, management, and education initiatives to protect river ecosystems and wildlife habitat. We believe that today’s stewardship efforts are an investment in our shared future.
Alabama Power operates 14 hydroelectric facilities and 11 reservoirs on the Coosa, Tallapoosa and Warrior river systems that average around 6 percent of the company’s annual electric generation. These projects are operated under licenses issued by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.
