What Our Customers Are Saying
“Marines need to train and hone their skills on the base, and that can’t be interrupted by natural disasters, attacks or anything that might cause the energy supply to this base to go down. This project is vital to our contribution to national security, and that’s not an overstatement.”
– Major General John Broadsmeadow, commander of Marine Corps Installations Command
What Our Customers Are Saying
“Only PowerSecure spent time to ensure and verify that all of HG&E’s requirements and expectations were met or exceeded through the bid process. Generators of this size that are used for both emergency and paralleling mode are not overly common.”
– Brian Beauregard, HG&E Electric Division superintendent
What Our Customers Are Saying
“The microgrid provides an opportunity to test the integration of new grid resources and technologies and serves as a case study for how agriculture and electric utilities – two of North Carolina’s most important industries – can work together to enhance the state’s rural communities.”
– North Carolina Electric Cooperative
