Being part of the Summit Utilities team means embracing excellence and innovation, committing to safety each and every day and seeing to it that employees do all they can to serve each other, the customers and the communities where they live and work.

Summit strives to create and embrace a diverse work environment that demands engagement and celebrates new and varying ideas.

As a company, Summit understands that home and family are important, and it works hard to provide employees a generous benefits package designed to support them at work and at home.
