Founded on creativity and safety


Power Consulting Associates was co-founded by David C. Grooms, PE in 2005 in order to provide engineering design, construction inspection and project management services for all stages of power delivery. Mr. Grooms had a vision for creating an enjoyable working environment for others who were just as passionate about developing and maintaining the electrical infrastructure around the world.

For nearly 2 decades now, PCA has provided professional engineering design and construction oversight inspection services to a diverse client base in the energy industry. As specialists of transmission line, distribution line and substation construction, our engineers and inspectors have been called upon by some of the largest utilities in the industry.

As a certified small business we know what it takes to build and maintain successful client relationships. Our clients continue to utilize our services because we hold ourselves accountable for the quality of our work and the results we achieve. At PCA we are proud of our relationships with our long-term clients and look forward to developing progressive rapport with professionals throughout all sectors of the energy business.

As a team, we encourage innovation and resourcefulness while striving to bring the most efficient and valuable solutions to our clients. Every project, every client and every relationship is just as important as the first one.


Power Consulting Associates is officially 100% employee-owned through an Employee Stock Ownership Plan. As an employee owned company, PCA will continue to operate under the same business model and management structure. Employees now have a vested interest in the bottom line. Research has proven over and over again that employee ownership builds successful and competitive companies.

This transition has several purposes: first, to provide ownership of the company to those who helped PCA get where it is today; second, to provide a substantial retirement benefit to its employees; and third to provide a tool to motivate and give reason to want to make PCA more successful; finally, it will help our team retain and attract key employees.


Our mission is to provide the expertise and attention to your project, to assure it is completed safely, efficiently, on time, and in compliance with the owner’s specification. We emphasize innovation and excellence while maintaining the highest ethical standards as exhibited by honesty, integrity, and respect.


To be the most respected and admired engineering and construction oversight firm in the electric power industry.


PCA strives to provide a safe working environment for all of its employees, clients, sub-contractors, etc. We are committed to maintaining and enforcing a program that will fulfill this goal. PCA complies with applicable federal, state and local laws and regulations, and promotes continuing accident prevention and safety awareness.

With safety as a top priority, our construction managers and inspectors have a minimum of 5 years of experience and are trained in First Aid/ CPR, OSHA 10/30 hour, OSHA Trench Safety and Standard Utility Safety Practices.

The PCA team has been called upon by a diverse client base ranging from small facility operators to the largest electric utility in the US to provide a host of services for the transmission and distribution of energy.
