Alabama Power plans new business office in Calera
Will relocate Montevallo office to this new location

CALERA, Ala. - April 10, 2008 - Alabama Power Company will have a new presence in Calera.  Construction has begun for a business office scheduled to open in October.  Company officials recently joined Calera city representatives and employees from Dunn Real Estate Co. and Dunn Building Co. to break ground at the site.

“We are expecting this to be a positive move for the city of Calera and Alabama Power. It is a growing community, and we have an opportunity to be a part of that growth,” said Debbie Hawkins, area manager for the company’s Birmingham Division.

The new office across the street from Wal-Mart on U.S. 31 will feature several conveniences for customers, including a drive-through window for faster service. Hawkins said it’s all part of Alabama Power’s efforts to “keep customer needs at the forefront.”

Alabama Power will be relocating its Montevallo office to the new Calera location. A customer drop box will be available at the Montevallo site for several weeks after it closes.
Hawkins said customers can expect the same level of excellent service at the Calera business office. In addition to paying their bills, customers can talk with Alabama Power employees and shop for appliances and electronics.
