Community

At LS Power, we approach every project as a community partnership.

We are deeply invested in the surrounding neighborhoods of our power generation and transmission projects across the United States. Our community involvement translates to a commitment to the local environment and economies by stimulating tax revenues, job creation and local hiring.

Additionally, we support charitable organizations in the communities of our projects with donations focused on improving economic growth, education, health and social welfare outcomes. In 2020 we contributed ~$1.8 million for this effort, primarily focused on COVID-19 Relief in the form of Health/Emergency Support and Hunger Relief programs.

ENVIRONMENTAL STEWARDSHIP

We view our responsibility as beyond just being compliant with local and federal regulations. We work to continually minimize our environmental footprint and impact. Our awareness of local and regional environmental issues allows us to customize our projects accordingly. Beyond solar, wind and energy storage initiatives, this focus has led to design features that promote the recycling or conservation of water as well as co-generation opportunities for neighboring industries. We use the latest technology and the brightest LS Power minds to find the best possible solutions for the environment.

LOCAL JOB CREATION AND INVOLVEMENT

We like hiring from the local communities where our projects are based so that we can invest in and help stimulate the local economies where our workforce and neighbors live. It’s important to us to keep our workforce engaged, empowered and happy to be at work.

Because our workforce comes from the surrounding local communities, our corporate giving philosophy is also very locally driven. We enjoy seeking civic input in the development of our projects and help determine what charitable contributions would be of most value to our neighbors in the community.

EDUCATION

LS Power strongly supports and encourages continuing education. We sponsor community scholarship funds to encourage students to attend college and pursue careers in technology or science. Our community involvement translates to contributions for several active STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) initiatives for middle and high schools in the areas where we work.
