Company History

In the years since company principals Kimberly and David Hart entered the electrical services industry, they have continually expanded their electrical contracting services to be on the forefront of emerging technological advancements and sophisticated energy management. Blackwater Electric remains family-owned and committed to providing superior services with the same high quality standards and commitment to client satisfaction as when they started the business.




Blackwater Electric earned its licensing in the state of North Carolina and opened a new location in the New Bern HUB zone to serve the Cherry Point – Southeast region. The company was awarded the contract for Hampton Roads Transit Light Rail’s maintenance of electrical systems.



Expansion Into Telecommunications, Data and Security

The Company celebrates 20 years of serving the electrical and telecommunications needs of government and commercial clients in Virginia and most recently in North Carolina. Core capabilities include electrical services for a variety of needs.




Blackwater Electric broke through to a new level of job size and responsibility with our completion of work for the Wallops Island NOAA renovation, under the guidance of Mid-Eastern Builders.

This system acquires, maintains, and distributes a continuous flow of meteorological satellite data throughout the United States.
