Ranked by ENR 2021 magazine as a top electrical and utility contracting company in the Southeast United States, Hypower provides services to government agencies, electrical utilities, developers, and leading general contractors.
Founded in 1991, headquartered in Fort Lauderdale Florida, Hypower is a family-owned business that currently employs more than 400 people and has successfully completed over 1,000 projects valued at over one billion dollars.
In response to Florida SB-796, Hypower has recently created a new division specifically to focus on lateral hardening/undergrounding of electrical power, telecommunications, and cable tv overhead infrastructure. The Storm Protection Plan (SB-796), not only will provide more reliable and sustainable power and communication systems, but, also enhance the aesthetics of our neighborhoods.
Hypower is PREQUALIFIED with several electrical power providers and almost all of Florida’s telecommunications service providers, to perform various tasks required for undergrounding their overhead power and telecommunication lines.
Undergrounding is a technical specialty; therefore, utilities are very strict with who they trust in their undergrounding work projects. They use a PREQUALIFICATION process to assess safety, knowledge, experience, and resources.
Experience Modification Rate (EMR) is the key indicator of a contractor’s safety record. Hypower has a history of exemplary EMR ratings::
