Our Founder

Fresh off being named the 2011 Entrepreneur of the Year for Women in Technology, Nicole C. Close let this entrepreneurial spirit and family history lead to her next endeavor. Both her grandfather and father were electricians, and given the lack of available jobs for electricians in the current economy, Close founded Bear Rock Electric, Inc. (BRE) to help create more employment opportunities in the local area. Taking that entrepreneurial spirit and the word of mouth about BRE’s level of excellence, Close has expanded her Fleet, Staff and coverage from Maryland to opening a full-service Generac Generator Shop in Point Harbor, NC which services the Outer Banks, Southeastern Virginia, and Northeastern North Carolina.

Our Company

Woman-owned and locally operated, BRE is an electrical contractor that can meet all your residential and commercial standby power needs. Close stresses “no pressure sales” but just the highest quality and code compliant service in the business with a Master Electrician present on every installation project. Bear Rock Electric’s Superintendent holds Master Electrical Licenses in Maryland, West Virginia, Virginia, and an Unlimited Electrical License in North Carolina.

Along with our experienced electrical workforce we feel that another factor for consideration is the actual size and flexibility of our team. Rather than having large layers of overhead structure that slows down responsiveness, we are literally a small, cohesive entity. It also means that we understand the value of a dollar. We understand efficiencies and will manage our team in the most cost conscious manner. We arrive on time, do what we say we are going to do, and warranty our work for one year.

BRE was established with the foundation and experience that all projects are unique and that communication is a key to success. Our project management strength coupled with our professional workforce provides the reliability and support required to complete the jobs and within budget.
