Southwest Energy Systems was recently awarded a contract to perform an Electrical Safety Assessment at a prestigious university in California. The contract represents the first phase, (nine buildings out of 91) of a multi-year project with an estimated value of over one million dollars. A representative for the engineering firm that performed the technical assessment on behalf of school, stated “Southwest Energy Systems price was competitive; not the lowest, but the interview sealed the deal.” The selection process included written Statements of Qualifications and an interview with several Director level representatives from the university.

Ed Kavanagh, Sales Manager for Southwest Energy Systems, said about the project, “To have a name like this on your client list is a big deal; we are very good at what we do and are more than prepared to take on this project. We have a very aggressive growth plan in place for the company and projects like this are key to our success.”

Jabez Brunz, Engineering Services Manager stated, “I believe the biggest reason we were awarded this project is our experience and expertise in NFPA 70E compliance. Our main focus is on the narrow discipline of Power System Studies. Our engineers have performed nearly 1000 Arc Flash Risk Assessments in the last 20 years and are considered pioneers in the industry. We are also performing similar jobs like the University of Arizona that was awarded to us in 2016. These multi-year, million dollar-plus jobs require companies that have an organized approach and methodology. Being trusted for these responsibilities is a testament to the quality we deliver to our clients.”
