Compliance with federal and state environmental requirements is only the beginning of our environmental commitment, and because of Errin’s effort we are able to provide energy to the state while fostering community in the Euharlee area.


With her father and grandfather both having successful careers in construction, Errin is no stranger to working with her hands. Today, she supports the single largest beneficial use project in the U.S. at Plant Bowen - where millions of tons of stored ash will be excavated for use in concrete to construct bridges, roads, and buildings in Georgia and throughout the Southeast.
