Electrical Utilities

Powering Today, Empowering Tomorrow

Electricity, much like the water we drink and the air we breathe, is often overlooked until it is absent. It’s the unseen current that powers our lives, and its importance is only truly felt in its absence—when the lights unexpectedly dim. At NEI, we’re driven by the conviction that our clients deserve the most reliable and up-to-date electric power infrastructure.

In the face of an aging electric grid and the ever-increasing demand for electricity, we stand as a visionary partner. NEI’s team of experts excels in revitalizing existing systems and designing new, more efficient infrastructures. Our forward-thinking designs are crafted not just for the needs of today but to propel our clients into a future where power delivery is both seamless and sustainable.

Investor-owned utilities are expected to keep the power on while demand constantly grows and to do so as economically as possible. With increased scrutiny from end consumers and stakeholders, the margin for error is virtually nonexistent. At NEI Electric Power Engineering, we’ve partnered with IOUs around the country to help them successfully navigate the ever-evolving utility landscape.

This blend of in-depth industry knowledge and a clear vision of the stakes involved powers a driven team, fully equipped to tackle intricate challenges with confidence.

Cooperatives & REAs

Co-ops and REAs have a unique interest in powering their communities. Operators and stakeholders are not only responsible for the power provided, but also a recipient of the power. Poor planning, design, and commissioning can have catastrophic effects on operations. Since the early 1980s, NEI has been the trusted partner for Co-ops and REAs around the nation. Together, we ensure all electric power needs are fulfilled. When we partner with Co-ops and REAs, we consult and work on conceptual design, commissioning, facility refurbishment, and power distribution. NEI’s talented team of multidisciplinary experts understands the myriad challenges Co-ops and REAs face every day. Our vast experience ensures that communities stay powered safely and efficiently well into the future.


As a trusted municipal, powering communities is a serious responsibility. Since its founding in 1982, NEI has partnered with municipals across the country to ensure that their electric power needs are met at all times. NEI collaborates with municipalities from conceptual design, commissioning, facility refurbishment, and power distribution. Our team of multidisciplinary experts understands the unique challenges municipals face daily and has the background and knowledge to keep facilities optimally running for years to come.

Providing your community and stakeholders with the power they need in a safe, reliable, and affordable way is a constantly moving target. Increased pressure on infrastructure and high levels of accountability place municipals at the crossroads of urban sprawl and increasing demands for power. NEI is a reliable partner who provides long-term operations and management solutions while being easy to work with and reliable.

By planning for and anticipating the evolving power needs of communities, municipalities are proactively ensuring an environment where electric power facilities are meeting the ongoing demands, while simultaneously building an infrastructure that can remain operational and economical for decades to come. NEI becomes part of the team to help plan and deliver solutions that include everything from substation design to energy storage, to transmission and distribution.
