Industry Sponsors:


The Electric Power Institute is a non-profit educational institute deriving its financial support from industry. Many companies have also provided indirect support to the institute in the form of equipment donations, workshop participation, seminar speakers, consulting opportunities for our faculty and summer job opportunities for students and faculty.

We encourage our supporters to visit the campus and meet with our faculty and administration to become familiar with our facilities. If you are interested in finding out more about the EPI, please feel free to contact us.
