About Optimize Electric

The Beginnings of Optimize Electric

Our story began in 2020 as a company built for change. With over 25 years of combined experience in electrical controls and hazardous monitoring systems, we saw a need for a new type of company. Optimize Electric was created to be the single source for companies looking to install or improve three key areas of their storage and processing facilities: Safety, Efficiency, and Quality Control. 

We have developed expert crews for:

  • Electrical installs and repairs 
  • Hazardous monitoring system installs and audits 
  • Lighting system deployment and improvements

We have worked with our clients on projects of all sizes, from small country elevators in South Dakota, to large export facilities in the Gulf Ports of Texas.

It’s no secret that many industrial and agricultural facilities are out of date when it comes to their electrical wiring. Optimize Electric is a Houston-based industrial and agricultural electrical contractor committed to making certain that industrial, agricultural, and commercial workers get home safely at the end of the workday.

We offer turnkey electrical safety solutions, prioritize thoroughness in every job we do, and serve clients with our personal touch that makes all the difference in meeting their electrical wiring needs.


Optimal Safety Solutions

Safety is imperative at industrial, electrical, and even commercial sites. Unfortunately, it is hard to know when electrical wiring is gradually posing a safety concern, but Optimize Electric is here to remedy this. We employ a consultative approach to your electrical wiring needs by first completing various electrical audits and then making appropriate recommendations.

Optimal Attention to Detail

Because electrical wiring is a matter of safety, we conduct annual audits. We even take care of any other safety issues that arise while completing our repairs. Further, if you need to improve upon OSHA compliance, we will do what it takes to make sure your facility meets OSHA requirements and regulations. Your facility is in good hands when you trust Optimize Electric.


We believe in communication and structure. This allows us to manage not only the quality of the system we are installing, it also empowers us to manage the proper training for operators of the system, along with helping to ensure we are reaching the goals of our clients. We map our projects at each step of the way to help communicate with our clients. Our “Lifecycle of a Project” helps with keeping clients informed of what we have completed and, what to expect next in the process. This open and detailed communication promotes our end goal of completing a system deployment that reaches the goals of the client, grows their safety culture, increases maintenance strategies, and builds trust throughout their company employees.
