EP² was featured in a Business Record article written by Joe Gardyasz titled Links In The Wind Energy Chain.

The factory floor at Electrical Power Products (EP2) in Des Moines is about as busy as Santa’s workshop these days. Though you won’t find any elves among the company’s 150 employees, the sense of urgency is similar as they build relay panels for utility customers across the country.

The company, which has nearly doubled its work force within the past couple of years, now attributes about 30 percent of its annual sales to the U.S. wind energy industry.

“It certainly has given us a boost,” said Tim O’Donnell, president of EP2 .

The manufacturer is currently working through a backlog of orders, including a large project for Southern California Edison, one of the nation’s largest utility companies, which is adding capacity for wind and solar energy producers to connect to the electrical grid. In Iowa, EP2 supplies relay panels to MidAmerican Energy Co., the state’s largest wind farm operator, as well as to another wind energy developer that’s building wind farms throughout the Midwest.

Electrical Power Products is one of 80 companies that form the links of a wind energy supply chain stretching across Iowa. The companies were identified in a report recently published by the Environmental Law and Policy Center (ELPC), a Chicago-based nonprofit organization that advocates environmentally friendly business strategies.
