Kent Power Company History

40 Years of Service

Kent Electric was started in 1947 by John Kent in Casnovia Michigan. John specialized in commercial and residential electrical work and would wire barns, schools, and commercial and municipal buildings. John’s youngest, Richard Kent, eventually purchased the company from his father in 1978, and would go on to shift the focus to outside line and substation construction. He would also change the name to Kent Power.
