Who We Are
As America's premier wholesale energy partner, Southern Power builds the future of energy by investing in clean energy solutions for the customers we serve.
Southern Power's business model is founded on a strategy of selling electricity generated by its clean energy assets through long term contracts with high credit quality counterparties. We value strategic partnerships with industry partners that help us deliver clean, safe, reliable and affordable generation to our customers.
A subsidiary of Southern Company, Southern Power is a leading U.S. wholesale energy provider meeting the electricity needs of municipalities, electric cooperatives, investor-owned utilities and other energy customers. Southern Power was formed in 2001 to support Southern Company in the wholesale market. In 2009, Southern Power's portfolio consisted of eight natural gas plants totaling 7,880 MW in four states. Since 2009, Southern Power has added more than 4,800 megawatts (MW) across 40 facilities. Today, the company continues to strategically grow its business through the acquisition and development of clean energy solutions.
At Southern Power, our portfolio consists of 48 natural gas, wind, solar and biomass generating assets capable of delivering more than 12,200 MW of clean, safe, reliable and affordable wholesale generation in every time zone. Our portfolio now includes over 2,900 MW of renewable generation. That diversity — through geography and fuel source — is part of what makes us America's premier wholesale energy partner.
