Our Story

Brothers Emmett and Ethan Smith grew up watching their father and uncle electrify an existing dam to build Azure Mountain Power in the early 1990s. They inherited a deep belief in the value of renewable electricity, and the knowledge that you truly can do anything you put your mind to.

Louise Gava met the Smith family in the early 2000s through her interest and work in sustainable agriculture and energy issues in the North County community.

Emmett, Ethan, and Louise founded Northern Power & Light with an earnest understanding of the challenges renewable electricity generators and local businesses face, and the belief that connecting people directly with these resources creates an outcome where both communities and the global climate win.
