PowerSecure International, Inc. (NYSE:POWR) today announced that one of the largest electric utilities in the country has notified the company that they have selected PowerSecure to serve as one of their new partners to provide transmission infrastructure service on their power grid.
PowerSecure began serving this utility customer on a limited basis in late 2012 and, through its work in 2013, has earned the opportunity to become a regular, long-term service provider.
Now that the utility has formally selected PowerSecure for this role, specific volumes of ongoing work will be determined in the coming quarters. The company estimates that in 2014 and 2015 it could be asked to double its work volumes and could realize $25-$35 million of revenue annually from this expanded relationship.
PowerSecure will not add this potential new business to its revenue backlog until the volume of work is determined.“We are grateful to have earned the trust and confidence of this important utility partner,” said Sidney Hinton, chief executive officer of PowerSecure. “The opportunity to significantly expand our work with this utility is a direct reflection of the quality of service we have delivered on our initial projects, and we are committed to earning their business every day by continuing to provide PowerSecure’s gold standard service.” “Our exceptional team, enhanced balance sheet and terrific track record of safety and performance all position PowerSecure strongly to compete for and win larger opportunities to serve our utility partners,” Hinton added.
