Services & Utilities

What Do the Service & Utility Industries Look Like?

The services and utilities industry delivers services to the public, rather than a product. Services can include cable TV, internet services, and phone service. The utility industry provides electric, gas, solar, or water sources to power homes and businesses. The utility industry is on the rise due to expansion in the energy field to include solar power and alternate energy sources.
