Improving Communities

We manage projects with a dedicated focus on the local region, because we believe it’s our responsibility to enhance the communities we are a part of. And we do that, on a fundamental level, through job creation, local materials sourcing, and tax revenue generation.

  • Each project creates hundreds of well-paying construction jobs and results in permanent positions for operators, managers, engineers and experts in safety, health and the environment.
  • In certain jurisdictions, tax revenue generated by our projects benefits local schools, towns, counties and states, and typically represents millions of dollars per year.
  • We strive to minimize our environmental impact, working with local experts and conservation groups and revitalizing land where possible.
  • As a developer, owner and operator, we make a long-term commitment to communities we are a part of—one that involves integrity, transparency and safety.

Advanced Power focuses on becoming an active participant in community life. These efforts have encompassed scholarship programs, youth sports sponsorships, educational programs and wetland reclamation programs.
