Who We Are

Our purpose is sustaining energy and water for life, and it is demonstrated in everything we do as a business, and as an employee team.

Plentiful sources of clean water and sustainably produced energy are essential for a healthy and happy life. They are the foundation of strong communities and a sustainable future.

Bringing this clean water and energy to people in a sustainable fashion is a major responsibility. We know that the services we provide directly affect and are essential to our customers’ quality of life and wellbeing. From homes to hospitals, elder-care facilities to elementary schools, our customers depend on our ability to continue to provide safe and reliable energy and water services.

Sustainability is, and always has been, the foundation of our growth strategy and a guiding principle governing how we plan, evaluate, and conduct our business. Through embedding sustainability in our day-to-day business decisions and putting our customers first in all that we do, we know that we can do well by doing good.
