Texas Power Suppliers installs and repairs overhead and underground powerlines. The company services all of West Texas as well as the entire USA if needed, and typically works in the Gulf Coast during the hurricane season. However, when COVID hit the economy, business slowed down, and the company lacked the cash to pay for travel funds to perform disaster relief work. When their EIDL application was denied due to a clerical error, Mr. Rendon contacted the Lubbock SBDC. CARES consultant Austin Payne helped him through the reconsideration process and explained how funds could be used. Thanks to the funds, the company has been able to bid for multiple jobs across west Texas, as well as a job in Puerto Rico.
