About Tempest Energy

Superior Storm Response™ and Restoration Service

Message From the CEO

Tempest Energy was conceived out of a realization that the electric utility industry and their respective communities were continually being challenged by natural disasters that destroyed the electric grid and interrupted normal life for millions of people.  Coupled with the increase in frequency and magnitude of destruction, was the shortage of skilled people and equipment to expedite the returning of those lives back to normal. 

Recognizing the frequency of events and the scarcity of resources adversely affected the electric industry from effectively planning and reinforcing the electric infrastructure- Tempest Energy provides a solution to that industry dilemma.  We are driven to partner with our infrastructure clients and the people they serve to build a more resilient grid and restore their services so people can get on with their lives.
