Alabama Power is an active participant in the communities it serves. The Alabama Power Foundation supports a wide spectrum of nonprofit organizations throughout the state, and Alabama Power employees and retirees volunteer their time and resources to support communities through the Alabama Power Service Organization and the Energizers Retiree Service Organization.
Economic development has been ingrained in Alabama Power's culture for more than a century. The company established the first economic development department for an electric utility in the county in 1913. With a strong record of meeting or doing better than environmental standards set by state and federal environmental agencies, the company is focused on preserving and protecting Alabama's natural resources.
