Liberty Power Corp – Why Work For Us?

Welcome to Liberty Power!


We started Liberty Power to make it easier for businesses to buy electricity in states open to competition. Energy costs continue to be one of the largest and most volatile operating expenses for companies of any size.

Liberty Power revolutionizes the way customers purchase electricity. We deliver affordable, reliable electricity, outstanding customer service, and a commitment to corporate responsibility. We allow our customers to manage their electricity prices so they can grow their businesses and run their homes.

Liberty Power understands that if businesses can lower and control their electricity costs, they can free up more cash flow for other business purposes. We have designed our portfolio of innovative products and services to empower our customers to do just that.

Our successful growth is fueled by three key fundamentals:

  • earning the trust of each of tens of thousands of customers
  • the hard work and commitment of each of our team members
  • our passion to deliver excellence in every aspect of our business.

We believe diversity is a business imperative and have made it a cornerstone of our organization. We are the only minority-owned, retail electric provider with a national presence. Our team is comprised of individuals from 21 different countries, we have a diverse base of suppliers, and we provide a unique opportunity for our customers to achieve their supplier diversity goals while lowering their electricity costs.

Thank you for your interest in Liberty Power. Let's be Powerful Together.

David Hernandez, CEO & Co-founder

Fort Lauderdale-based Liberty Power Corp., which sells electricity, was among the minority-owned businesses recognized in the 2013 National Minority Enterprise Development Week Awards, the U.S. Department of Commerce said Monday.

Liberty Power was named the Minority Retail Energy Firm of the Year. The award recognizes a company that “has achieved notable success in providing quality products and services that resulted in improvement of the environment,” according to the Minority Business Development Agency in Washington, D.C.

“We are humbled and proud to receive this award, and do so on behalf of our team members and all the small businesses, households and Fortune 500 customers we serve,” said David Hernandez, co-founder and CEO of Liberty Power. Hernandez founded the company in 2001 with Alberto Daire, president.

The agency said Liberty Power is one of only four national retail electric providers licensed in 16 or more markets and is the only minority-owned, independent energy retailer with a national presence.

Liberty Power has been recognized as one of the fastest-growing Hispanic-owned businesses in the nation with more than $710 million in revenues in 2012 and 270 employees.

The company sells electricity in 15 states and Washington, D.C. There were 11 other winners recognized in various categories. For a full list, visit medweek.mbda.gov.

    I have been working at Liberty Power Corp full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I was a contractor before I was converted to perm. During that time I was witness to the layoffs and the reduced spending. While I feel for the people that were affected by the layoffs unfortunately it is sometimes a necessary evil for a business to survive. However, things are beginning to look up again and I'm hopeful that the trend will continue.

    Great Co-workers
    Competitive Salaries
    No Dress Code
    Work-Life Balance

    Cons

    Upper management could have handled the layoff/cost avoidance strategy better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    From what I understand Liberty Power has grown from a small ship to a large ship. Please keep that in mind when changing course as the wakes left behind can have longer lasting effects. I am buying into the "Powerful Together" philosophy and am hoping that I made the right choice.
