We are transforming the way we power Alabama through the diverse mix of energy sources we use to generate reliable electricity.
A significant part of that mix is derived from clean energy sources, which also reduces our carbon emissions.

Clean energy is electricity generated from carbon-free fuel sources. These sources are renewable (solar, hydro and wind) or do not emit carbon during the generation of electricity, like nuclear energy. Each source works differently in contributing to our electric grid. Together, they provide us with many ways to ensure we are meeting our customers’ energy needs today and tomorrow.

Doing the work and making an impact

We founded our business on clean energy and innovation, using hydropower to provide electricity to Alabamians. Since then, we have evolved with the energy industry, exploring new technologies that continue to meet the demands of our customers and strengthen our power grid.

We are committed to growing our clean energy portfolio, generating even more electricity from carbon-free fuel sources. And we are doing that by investing in solar projects, modernizing stake.comour hydroelectric facilities and nuclear plants, adding natural gas plants and educating customers on ways to reduce their energy usage overall.
