Empowered Electric isn’t your typical electric company. Sure we can say that we strive for things like being on time, on budget, and top quality but honestly those things are hardly talked about here. We don’t make them an emphasis because the company wasn’t started with the question, “What if we built a company that strived to be… fill in the above.” No way. There are tons of other electric companies that started with the goal of being the cheapest, the fastest, the prettiest (we would definitely lose that one). Instead, when I started this company in 2015, I quickly asked the question, “What if I cared more about people and less about profit” It’s this question and questions like this that shape how we build our budgets, how we push our schedules, how we handle our customs. No one has to tell you when you have a group of people EMPOWERED to care…. Great things happen.
