Together, they lead our entire crew and personally ensure that our dedication to safety and quality is upheld for each and every one of our partnering clients. CODY COOK PRESIDENT I have spent decades running at problematic situations, from a devastated power grid in Louisiana following Hurricane Katrina to a straight-forward isolated bus duct installation. And that’s exactly the type of person you want at the helm of your power solution partner. As the President and co-owner of MidStates Energy Co., alongside my friend and colleague Nathan Naeger, I plan, organize, direct, and oversee the delivery of power plant maintenance and industrial and commercial electrical needs. Some people may run into a problem and take a week to find a solution; at MidStates Energy, we run in and take our years of knowledge and start problem-solving through trial and error to get to the solution. For years to come, we at MidStates Energy hope to build a successful company that changes lives. Thriving on competition, identifying solutions for challenging power maintenance issues, and the satisfaction of a job well done, MidStates Energy is your national power solution.
