American States Water operates as a water supplier in California through its subsidiary Golden State Water Company. ASW supplies around 261,000 people with water and sewage services in California. In addition, the company operates as an electricity provider for roughly 24,000 people through its subsidiary Bear Valley Electric Service, Inc. ASW is also active in the construction, maintenance and upkeep of water and sewage systems for US military bases. These reliable businesses in turn run through the subsidiary American States Utility Services, Inc. Although the company is also active in the state of Arizona, ASW generates the vast majority of its sales as a classic water and wastewater company in drought-ridden California and has been paying dividends to its shareholders continuously since 1931.
