The Powering Lives Community Center is our newest educational center, opening its doors in 2022! It was created to be a space where customers, students, employees, stakeholders and vendors can learn and meet. The center demonstrates the importance of diversity, inclusion and equity within our workplace and the communities we serve, while focusing on our commitment to STEM and development of future energy professionals.
