About AMEA

The Alabama Municipal Electric Authority is committed to providing dependable, economical electric power to our communities.

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 our 11 public power utility Members is proof.

As a publicly-owned, not-for-profit provider, we’re directly accountable to those we serve, while our collective strength gives us greater buying power. This results in stabilized costs, competitive rates and substantial savings for these communities.
