The Jim Woodruff hydroelectric dam located on the Apalachicola River on the northern border of Gadsden County produces more than 200,000 megawatt-hours (MWh) of power daily.

Natural gas is delivered to Gadsden County businesses by Florida Public Utilities, which gets its supplies via the Florida Gas Transmission (FGT) pipeline.

The cities of Chattahoochee, Quincy, Havana, and Tallahassee serve customers with clean natural gas.
