Shifting to sustainability


Shifting to sustainability.

HICO is committed to building an electrical infrastructure that supports American industries and reduces the global effects of our energy needs. Our sustainability initiatives involve taking action to address the impact made yesterday, improve the processes used today, and invest in the technologies that will shape tomorrow.
As our industry evolves, we seek opportunities to recycle and repurpose facilities and equipment that no longer meet our standards; develop safer, more efficient methods to produce and transfer energy; and bridge the gap between modern-day demands and future possibilities. By continuing to harness low-carbon sources with nuclear and hydro facilities, and expanding renewable energy capabilities, HICO will be able to meet growing energy demands while protecting and preserving the environment for generations to come.


Our differences make all the difference.

HICO was founded on the principle of putting culture first, and our culture is centered around inclusion and teamwork. We value the different experiences and backgrounds that each employee brings to the team and the entrepreneurial spirit of our organization thrives on diverse opinions. We can only produce the best products and solutions when our people feel comfortable sharing ideas, best practices, and experiences. Beyond the immediate HICO organization, we’ve set up a network of approved Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (DBE) that offer the supplementary services needed to carry out our projects. DBE inclusion is not only the right thing to do but working with these organizations has consistently yielded on-time and under-budget projects for our clients. Our commitment to diversity and inclusion isn’t just a talking point at HICO, it’s part of our DNA.
