As a company, we prioritize engagement with environmental partners in our communities and across the nation. Through public-private partnerships, we promote conservation, restoration and increased environmental awareness, while working to support sound policy and science for the development of clean energy projects. 

Through our long-standing partnership with the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, Southern Power is supporting the education, outreach and habitat conservation of wildlife, like the desert tortoise, in areas where we serve.


Southern Power is at the forefront of researching and developing technologies to better manage our resources while reducing the environmental impacts of our business.
