Through the years energy companies have fielded a variety of sports teams. Here's a Cincinnati Gas & Electric employee volleyball team. Perhaps you can help us figure out who they are, and why they are all stars.
The images are from the Duke Energy archives in Charlotte, N.C. If you know any of the people or locations in the photos, email firstname.lastname@example.org, and include the photo number or attach the image.
Photo 657: Who is this Duke Power security guard? Where did he work?
Photo 700: This photo is from the Florida Power collection. What was the ACT Energy Award? Who are these people?

A number of you helped identify Photo 648, captioned Madison Light & Power Co. building in Madison, Ind. Tom Tate dates the photo circa 1953 based on “the cars visible in the foreground and reflections in windows.” The building is still there, at Main and Mulberry Streets as you can see from Jenny Keeton’s photo below.
Photo 683 has been identified by several readers as Carolina Power & Light employee Marlene Cameron at the Raleigh Customer Service Center in August 1998 during Hurricane Bonnie.
