Advanced Power’s vision is to be a world-class developer and manager of independent power generation and related infrastructure projects. In striving to achieve and sustain this vision, we adhere to these five core values:
We believe that community involvement is a long-term commitment. We manage projects with a dedicated focus on the local region because we believe it is our responsibility to enhance the communities in which we work. We do this through job creation, sourcing local materials, generating tax revenue and ultimately by being a good neighbor. Our support focuses on the improvement of community resources, environmental betterment and support for science-related education.
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.
Cricket Valley Scholarship Program
Cricket Valley Energy supports Dover, N.Y., students with an annual scholarship awarded to a graduating senior interested in pursuing a degree in engineering or environmental sciences. Since 2009, the scholarship has been awarded to Dover High School graduating seniors and is expected to support an increasing portion of higher education funding.
Carroll County Energy grants funding for the POWER Initiative, an investigative learning experience designed to develop new academic and career pathways for students in the district. The program benefits students by providing an early introduction to real-world critical thinking and project-based experience. Carroll County Energy views the initiative as a great way to share its expertise with the community and to engage students with new learning opportunities.
Approach to the Environment
Environmental responsibility is essential to our decision making. We are committed to the rapid reduction of global emissions by displacing inefficient, heavily emitting power plants with low and no-carbon power infrastructure. We intend to thrive as a company and improve the environment in the process. Watch our video highlighting how Advanced Power is smartly reducing CO2.
Invest & Invigorate
At Advanced Power, we believe that low and no-carbon generation is the best way to invest — and invigorate — our existing electric infrastructure, while significantly reducing emissions and improving efficiency and reliability. We are experts at developing, commercializing and managing mature and innovative generation infrastructure that provides benefits to consumers and the environment.
Further, we seek to improve upon the environment — not just preserve it. During development, we work with advisory groups and seek engagement with local residents, officials and environmental advocates to minimize impacts through design and reflect the environmental, economic and social priorities of the community.
Efficiency & Effective
Our low-carbon, flexible CCGT projects can achieve efficiency levels well above industry averages and represent some of the most advanced facilities in existence. High flexibility, short start-up periods and rapid loading cycles make these facilities highly effective is supporting the rapidly growing new renewable energy sector.
