Arizona Public Service Company (APS)
We were founded 5 years after Tombstone's gunfight at the OK Corral and nearly a quarter-century before Arizona became a state. Although we have served Arizona for more than 125 years, in many ways it feels like we are just getting started. As Arizona's largest and longest-serving electric company, we are proud of our heritage and past performance. But we recognize new technologies and growing customer expectations are leading to rapid changes at our company and in our industry. We generate safe, affordable and reliable electricity for more than 1.1 million retail and residential customers in 11 of Arizona's 15 counties. By 2030 we expect to add 700,000 new customers. We plan to meet those customer's needs through innovation and excellent service. Our corporate vision is to create a sustainable energy future for Arizona. The use of innovative smart technologies, renewable energy sources and energy efficiency are key components of our efforts to meet that vision. We make decisions with the goal of creating long-term corporate value and adhering to our Code of Ethics and Business Practices. We consider our societal, economic and environmental impact, now and for generations to come. We view sustainability as a business practice, not an initiative or green program. We take a long-term strategic approach to our decisions and their economic, environmental and social implications. Sustainability is our business model and is ingrained in our corporate strategic framework.
