Our Commitment to the Community


Initiatives

In keeping with our values-oriented culture, our business primarily focuses on three areas of support in the communities where we operate, work and live:

  • Environmental Programs
  • Educational Programs
  • Cultural Enrichment

Our commitment to environmental protection and stewardship begins in our facilities. To broaden our reach, we have established partnerships with environmental organizations and we actively participate in programs that expand environmental awareness and protect human and ecosystem environments in the community.

We also care deeply about the quality of education in our communities. Part of the reason is self-serving: we need highly skilled individuals in technical, financial, mechanical, analytical, and communications fields to operate our business. That's why we support math and science programming in schools at every level of education. We also recognize that communities with strong math and science programs have higher levels of economic development than communities without math and science programs.

Petron Energy supports cultural enrichment activities as well. Nearly all of these activities support our environmental and educational goals.

Environmental Stewardship

ImageProtecting Our Environment

We continue to invest in technology to meet and exceed environmental laws and regulations, as well as our own internal policies. One of those new technologies uses Trona, a naturally-occurring, sodium-based compound with a strong appetite for sulfur dioxide.

Our Business

Petron Energy reduces risk by managing the spread between the cost of fuel used to operate electric generation plants and the revenue received from the sale of the power produced by those plants, and managing the spread between retail sales commitments and the cost of supply used to service those commitments to ensure stable and known minimum cash flows, and lock in favorable prices and margins when they become available.

Safety First

ImageOur Culture of Safety

Petron Energy is absolutely committed to the safety of our employees and our operations. We work hard to ensure that every employee understands our dedication to safety, which is why we identified safety as a critical component of our mission: "To focus on employee safety, environmental protection and our community responsibilities."
