About Company

AMEA’s mission is to provide for our Member communities a reliable and economical source of electric power, enabling them to preserve and enhance the benefits of municipal utility ownership for their citizens and the electric customers they serve. We strive to offer services that our Members need and can adapt to provide the best value for their communities and customers.

Who We Are

The Alabama Municipal Electric Authority (AMEA), a joint action agency formed in 1981, is the wholesale power provider for 11 public power utilities in Alabama, which serve approximately 350,000 customers in the cities of Alexander City, Dothan, Fairhope, Foley, LaFayette, Lanett, Luverne, Opelika, Piedmont, Sylacauga and Tuskegee. 

Mission Statement

The Alabama Municipal Electric Authority (AMEA) would like to invite its Members to attend the 2017 Power Supply Conference, April 20 and 21, at the Grand Hotel Marriott Resort in Point Clear, AL. The conference is free and open to AMEA Members only. 

Core Values

What are core values?

  • A few timeless guiding principles for individual and organizational behavior.
  • Things you believe in so strongly that you would hold onto them even if they became a competitive disadvantage or subjected you to personal hardship.

There is no “right” or “wrong” set of core values.

Core values are not the same as operating practices, strategies, etc

History

AMEA’s success can be attributed to the strength of its membership and the strength of unified action. There is strength in numbers, and the success of AMEA’s 11 public power utility Members is proof.

In the late 1970s, the cities of Alexander City, Dothan, Fairhope, Foley, LaFayette, Lanett, Luverne, Opelika, Piedmont, Sylacauga, Troy, and Tuskegee explored joining together to stabilize wholesale power supply costs and meet other mutual needs.

In 1981, their efforts resulted in passage of the legislation that enabled the cities to jointly create AMEA as a public corporation to provide dependable, economical electric power and other services for the Member cities.

On Sept. 1, 1986, AMEA began providing affordable, reliable power to its Members for power requirements exceeding their Southeastern Power Administration (SEPA) allotments and was, on that date, designated as the Members’ agent with SEPA.

Over the past 36 years, AMEA has served its Members’ public power consumers in Alexander City, Dothan, Fairhope, Foley, LaFayette, Lanett, Luverne, Opelika, Piedmont, Sylacauga and Tuskegee by keeping their communities competitive for new and existing customers.

AMEA visionaries saw the establishment of the organization as a means to accomplishing much more together than was possible separately. Because of their vision and perseverance, AMEA has become a valued partner in Alabama’s electric utility community.

And because of that vision, Members are committed more than ever to Joint Action as they are benefiting from AMEA’s power supply initiatives, competitive rates, assets, and selected value-added programs and services.

AMEA continues to be strong and vibrant. Anchored by its belief in strategic planning (from the Members up); safeguarded by the oversight of a committed Board of Directors; governed by policies established by the Board; supported by Member involvement via advisory committees; and stimulated by progressive leadership, AMEA will continue to be a tool that its Members can rely on to help contribute to the betterment of their communities.

As it was in the beginning and still remains today, AMEA will stay true to its mission of providing for our Member communities a reliable and economical source of electric power, enabling these 11 cities to preserve and enhance the benefits of municipal ownership for their citizens and the more than 350,000 electric customers they serve. The second facet of AMEA’s mission is to provide its Members products and services that help their efficiency, performance and communities. 

Power

The Alabama Municipal Electric Authority is a type of public power entity designated as a joint action agency, meaning we are a consortium of 11 public power systems within our state.

  • Benefits of public power include:
  • High reliability
  • Immediate access to local rate-setting authorities
  • Local service and repair access
  • Long-term focus on community growth
  • Greater portion of revenues stay in the community
  • Local employment
  • Attractive nature of community-delivered electricity to new and relocating businesses
  • Greater awareness of local energy needs

Public power is a collection of more than 2,000 community-owned electric utilities, serving over 45 million people or about 14 percent of the nation’s electricity consumers.

Public power utilities are operated by local governments to provide communities with reliable, responsive, not-for-profit electric service. Public power utilities are directly accountable to the people they serve through local elected or appointed officials.

Some of the nation’s largest cities – Los Angeles, San Antonio, Nashville, Seattle and Orlando – operate publicly-owned electric utilities, but many public power communities are small with their utilities serving 3,000 or fewer customers.

The American Public Power Association, which is the service organization for the nation’s more than 2,000 community-owned electric utilities. has a host of fact sheets about the benefits of public power.
