Company History

100th Anniversary

In 1989 we published a book highlighting the industry, employees, communities and customers of our first century. You can experience that history for yourself through the words and photographs of “A History of The Washington Water Power Company 1889-1989” downloadable at the link on this page and through the presentation “The First 100 Years” you can also view on this page. Avista has generations of dedicated workers, corporate leadership and community involvement to celebrate and we invite you to learn more abut them.
