Schneider Engineering offers engineering services designed to assist electric utilities with a variety of projects.  SE's engineers work projects from concept to close-out.  From Distribution to Planning, we are committed to work every project with integrity, drive, and focus on a cost-effective service delivery.


Our Distribution Engineering teams provide practical solutions to our Clients' medium and low voltage, overhead and underground distribution projects.  Our engineered solutions for distribution projects are based on applying Client-specific construction standards to a set of pre-engineered design guides to meet governing codes and standards.  Our field staking resources coordinate with our engineering staff to ensure complete engineered solutions are delivered for even the most diverse field conditions, including self-supported structure design and procurement.  Our experience with overhead projects include new construction and rebuilds, voltage conversions and conductor upgrades, and subdivisions and industrial parks.  Read More

Our Distribution Engineering expertise also includes:

      • Field Staking and Design Services
      • Construction Coordination
      • Regulatory Permitting
      • Easement Procurement
      • Distribution Construction Work Order Inspections


SE's transmission team provides Clients with cost-effective transmission solutions through multiple project delivery systems, including traditional design-bid-build and multiple turn-key engineer-procure-construct (EPC) methodologies to fit the needs of the project and Client expectations.  Our transmission engineers design using PLS-CADD software, and partner with our Clients to ensure technical objectives are achieved.  Our transmission team often includes our regulatory team to project manage CCN applications when our Clients' projects require Public Utility Commission Approval.  Our approach has worked on projects located in remote and urban areas, as well as for specialized renewable projects.  Read More

Our Transmission Design services also include:

      • CCN Support, Regulatory Compliance, and Permitting
      • ROW Structure Staking Services
      • Construction Management and Inspection
      • Easement Procurement and Coordination


Our substation engineering group consists of a multi-disciplined team of engineers and technicians experienced in designing green field, or substation retrofit projects of any complexity and size to include ring bus, break-and-a-half, or double bus substation designs.  We provide full protection and control engineering for our projects, including relay setting development.  Our project delivery methodologies are proven to meet any schedule and budget.  SE's Substation Engineering Team provides complete engineering, construction management, and project inspection services.  Read More

Our Substation Design services also include:

      • Protection and Control Design
      • Metering, Communications System, SCADA Design


Our system planning engineering group provide engineering studies that promote the development and maintenance of reliable electric power systems.  Our planning studies provide both strategic and tactical road maps for meeting the dynamic needs of today's electric distribution systems that meet our Clients' planning and reliability criteria, and balanced by capital budgeting requirements.  Read More

Typical planning studies:

      • Long Range Strategic Plans
      • Construction Work Plans
      • Load Forecast Studies
      • Reactive Compensation Studies
      • RUS Compliant Planning Studies


Our team of engineers and technicians partner with out Clients to provide essential analyses of their electric distribution systems for optimum performance from a safety and operational perspective.  Read More

We operate as an extension of our Clients' team to provide timely engineering support and studies, assisting with meeting system performance goals in the following areas:

      • New Services Supply Plans
      • Reactive Compensation Studies
      • Arc-Flash Studies
      • Short Circuit and Protection Device Coordination Studies
      • Sectionalizing Studies
      • Power Quality Analysis


Power quality is an important issue for electric distribution utilities in today's business and operational environment.  Schneider Engineering provides Clients with power quality investigation services, analysis, and comprehensive studies designed to identify and solve all types of power quality problems.  Power quality problems occur at the substation and feeder level, as well as on the consumer-side of the meter.  Read More
