Kenny Electric Expands Service in Texas
In early 2017 Kenny Electric will open the doors to a new satellite office, established to serve customers in the Permian Basin of West Texas.

The new office management team will be comprised of Texas native and experienced Master Electrician, Mike Moon, in the role of Project Manager; and Rick Francoeur, an 18 year veteran in electrical and construction technologies, serving as the Texas Branch Manager. The new location offers the same service capabilities as those provided to Kenny’s customers in Colorado.

Kenny Electric Completes Work for West Texas O&G Plant
Anadarko engaged Kenny Electric to complete a large-scale construction project that involved concurrently updating their plant and a new compressor station. Kenny upgraded the primary voltage in the main control building of the plant and provided service to several new pieces of station equipment. The project also involved laying fiber optic cable over five miles between the plant and compressor station. It was a tight project timeline but the team succeeded.
