The backbone of our business, our trades and operations employees are responsible for the around-the-clock operation of our power plants, keeping three principles in mind: reliability up, costs down and safety always.

If your career is just beginning, we'll help you get the best possible start. We offer education and apprenticeship programs to help ease the strain and expense of becoming a journeyman or obtaining your power-engineer ticket. You'll also work with a team of professionals dedicated to helping you succeed in your position.

For the skilled veteran, your expertise and experience won't go unrewarded. Our plant operators, technicians and tradesmen have the opportunity to move into leadership roles within our operations.
