Alabama Power Company
When Alabama Power Company was founded on Dec. 4, 1906, it was the beginning of more than simply an electric utility company. It marked the beginning of affordable, reliable electricity that would transform Alabama's economy and vastly improve the quality of life for its citizens. For 100 years, Alabama Power's history has been intricately linked with that of the state it proudly serves. Alabama Power provides the valuable combination of competitive prices, reliable electricity supply and unparalleled service to 1.4 million homes, businesses and industries in the southern two-thirds of Alabama. It is one of four U.S. utilities operated by Southern Company, one of the nation's largest producers of electricity.
