At the same time, we have one of the lowest forced outage rates in the industry and retail electric prices that are significantly below the national average.

We're also an environmentally responsible company. Since 1990, we've made significant reductions in sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides at our plants. We're at the forefront of research to generate electricity from new and cleaner fuel sources. Learn more in our Corporate Responsibilty Report.
