Our History

Over the last decade, Liberty Power has grown from a small start-up to the largest independent retail electricity provider in the United States. Founded in 2001 by David Hernandez, CEO and Alberto Daire, President, the company has grown organically one customer at a time by acting with integrity, building trust, and creating value for the customer.

Liberty Power’s initial focus was providing small and medium-sized businesses with the same low-cost energy and exceptional customer service typically reserved only for the largest energy users. Today, the company provides value to all types of customers, be it small business owners, large Fortune 500 companies, government accounts, or residential customers. While the company has experienced tremendous growth, Liberty Power has maintained its core values and entrepreneurial spirit.

Competition and the power to choose are hallmarks of the free enterprise system in which the company’s co-founders steadfastly believe. Today, Liberty Power seeks to educate customers about their ability to choose an energy supplier by offering service in 14 states encompassing over 50 utility territories. Liberty Power is here to help its customers navigate volatile energy markets.

Liberty Power is the largest independent retail electric provider and 13th largest non-residential retailer in the United States based on the 2012 DNV KEMA Retailer Landscape report. In 2012, Liberty Power received the distinction of being the largest Hispanic-owned Energy Company in the U.S. and the 8th largest Hispanic owned company overall on the Hispanic Business 500. The company is also the first minority-owned, retail electric provider with a national footprint. Currently serving hundreds of thousands of accounts in 14 states, Liberty Power continues to provide low-cost electricity and exceptional customer service to its customers.

Liberty Power is a member of the National Minority Supplier Development Council in several affiliations on a national level with over three years elite membership to Corporate Plus, KEMA, Texas Electricity Professionals Association (TEPA), and Illinois Energy Professionals Association (ILEPA). We sponsor numerous events that foster economic empowerment in under–represented population segments.
