We rely on electricity every day. We count on it at home, school and work - 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. That means many people work together to generate and distribute electricity when and where it is needed. That also means the future is bright for the electric industry.

The electric industry is continuously changing - developing new and cleaner ways to deliver the electricity we all need. It will remain an important one throughout the future, providing secure careers for qualified people. As young adults graduate from high school or advance to under-graduate and graduate studies, it's important they keep in mind the countless careers in the electric industry.
