In 1954, Tom Dolan and Ralph Feldhaus were selling equipment to power companies.  They started their own company at the beginning of 1955.  Over the next 32 years, they introduced new suppliers and new technologies to the utility community in Minnesota and the Dakotas.


In 1987, I took over the company with the original name.  The time has come to rebrand.  Suppliers are evolving with an emphasis on renewables and resilience. ReliaPower seems like a perfect fit.


I am a Navy veteran and a Michigan State University Engineering grad, supported by experts from the companies represented.
