Since then the utility has expanded the number of company owned, alternative fuel vehicles to include a bucket truck and 24 hybrid passenger vehicles.

2017 - Summer Intern Commencement
Flashing back this Friday to the 2017 Summer Intern Commencement at MLGW University. #MLGW works with the Shelby County School district providing internships for students in grades 10 – 12. Interns work in multiple departments at MLGW; giving them an opportunity to explore jobs in the utility industry. #FBF #ServingYouIsWhatWeDo
Every year, #MLGW employees try new ways to raise funds for the Mid-South Food Bank’s Operation Feed campaign. Four years ago, the Purchasing and Contracts department set up a snack bar in the Administration Building. Sales of sno-cones and nachos, as well as events coordinated by other departments, helped raise more than $37,000 for the Mid-South Food Bank in 2017.
2020 - Liquefied Natural Gas
Turning the clock back to 2012 when #MLGW began selling liquefied natural gas (LNG) to U.S. companies for 60-to-80 cents a gallon. LNG is sold at truck stops where it is used as an alternative fuel for 18-wheeler trucks. #ServingYouIsWhatWeDo
2017 - Memorial Day Weekend Storm
Flashing back to 2017 and a Memorial Day holiday weekend few of us will forget. Straight line winds blew through on May 27 knocking out power to 188,000 #MLGW customers. Giant trees crashed into cars, homes, and power lines. The wind was so strong it even knocked over the 30-foot obelisk in Tom Lee park. MLGW crews worked around the clock to restore power to everyone affected. #ServingYouIsWhatWeDo
