About Us

Southern Power Systems
Southern Power Systems was formed in April of 1994 by G. Wade Giles. The company started out on a small scale and, while it provided a limited number of services, it proved to be quite successful. Our 19-year relationship with ABB and other industrial customers has been a big asset in the growth and stability of Southern Power Systems continuous influx of new talent and experience into the personnel ranks.

We service, maintain, repair, and upgrade all manufacturers’ electrical equipment, including switchgear, circuit breakers, transformers, and starters. We provide on-site or in shop manufacturing or refurbishment of medium and low voltage bus systems. We offer 24-hour on-site or in-shop maintenance and testing services (breaker testing, contact repair, hi-pot, hot-oil vacuum processing, relay testing, commissioning, etc.), in addition to on-site installations and inspections.

Our Baton Rouge Service Center and headquarters is a 14,000 square foot office and shop located at 8501 Joor Road, Baton Rouge, LA 70818. Emile Faust is the V-President of Operations and can be reached at (225) 261-7807 or efaust@sopower.com.

We currently stock a wide assortment of new surplus, used and re-manufactured circuit breakers and parts. Custom modernization of circuit breakers and starters is done in our Baton Rouge shop. In addition to equipment sales, we will also purchase used or surplus electrical equipment that you may have for sale.
