Arizona Public Service (APS) is leading the way toward an energy future that is cleaner, more reliable and sustainable. With $3.3 billion in annual revenue and nearly 7,000 employees, APS is the largest electric utility in Arizona, serving 1.1 million customers. They are the principal subsidiary of publicly traded Pinnacle West Capital Corporation (NYSE:PNW). Their generation fleet includes natural gas, nuclear, coal and growing renewable technologies.
Their commitment to Veterans has never wavered. In fact, veterans compose more than 20% of their employee base, allowing them to lead the state in recognizing the value that former military personnel bring to the civilian workplace.
They are partnering with the state’s nonprofit and education community to support veterans’ initiatives. The community recently awarded $10,000 to Maricopa Community Colleges for its veterans’ centers in the West Valley and has partnered with Goodwill of Central Arizona to fund employment training for veterans. In addition, we worked with the City of Phoenix and other Arizona corporations to launch the Veterans Economic Communities Initiative, which is led by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and promotes economic success for veterans in partnership with local communities.
