“ Blackwater Electric was the electrical subcontractor for MCAS Cherry Point Engineering Product Support Facility. In addition to the typical building power requirements such as power distribution, lighting, and electrical systems, Blackwater’s scope of work included a large portion of high voltage work. Blackwater completed the connection to an existing electrical substation, installation of eleven (11) class two, 45′ tall power poles and high voltage overhead conductors, a new pad mounted switch, two 300 kva transformers and secondary power to the building. The work performed by Blackwater was of high quality. Their office and field staff were both accommodating and responsive. Blackwater was a team player and is highly recommended. They are a competent and qualified electrical contractor. ” – Jacob Thurlow, Project Manager, The Haskell Company
