Our Commitment

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:

Improving Communities

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.
