Horizontal directional drilling has been the go-to method for laying conduits underground and in places that are impossible for many years now. With directional drilling, it is now possible to install sewage pipes, oil pipes, gas lines, water pipes, or communication lines under rivers, creeks, buildings, and roads. Since directional drilling was first introduced in the early ‘90s, directional drilling contractors have continued to improve the technology and apply it to more areas than oil and gas drillings. Read on to learn more about directional drilling companies and how to choose a reputable contractor for your needs. SEM Power, based in Tampa, is one of the top solar energy companies Florida residents trust. Call SEM Power today for your solar energy needs!

HDD is utilized by directional drilling contractors in three  main phases in order to achieve maximum utility for a given project. To begin with, the initial hole  is drilled along a marked path that the pipeline is supposed to take. The undergroundhole runs horizontally through the path from the beginning point of the pipeline, all the way up to the endpoint. After this has been accomplished, the second phase of drilling is to enlarge the diameter of the hole, in order for the pipelines to be installed smoothly. The pipeline is placed into the hole and then pulled from both ends. One of the best parts of horizontal directional drilling is that it does not cause inconveniences to third or second parties. HDD is almost silent since the boring happens underground, and it does not leave excess dirt on the ground as the soil stays underground, which means that other activities like traffic flow on a road can go on while drilling is being done underneath. Directional boring contractors like SEM Power have not only made trenchless drilling for pipe installation fast and easy, but also convenient and eco-friendly! Finding underground drilling services is fairly simple and quick. Choosing the most suitable directional drilling contractor for your scope of work can be the tricky part.

I rarely write reviews, and to be frank, a company needs to be very bad or they need to be extraordinary to get me to post anything. In the case of SEM Power, the word EXTRAORDINARY is the right word. Although I installed approximately 112 solar panels about five years ago, Hurricane Irma required a new roof, and in doing so, those 112 solar panels had to come down and then reinstalled back in place. Because I was able to reconfigure my solar pool heater in a different location, it allowed me the ability to add another 12 or so panels. In doing so, my billing from FPL has gone from $650 per month five years ago to $8 today. Yes, $8!!! Hard to believe, but solar is incredible. In addition to a reinstall, the software needed to be able to see and control the daily use of power has been challenging, only because an outside vendor supplies the equipment and software. That said, SEM Power has been by my side to get this resolved multiple times due to no fault of their own. This is a tribute to a great organization that I feel was a great decision on my part. If you choose solar, give them a call. I was 110% satisfied!!!

I have been researching solar companies for a year or more and recently went with SEM Power. Today is install day. The crew showed up on time and were ready to work. I am impressed with the respect and work ethic the three gentlemen have doing the install. They are quick with the "Yes sir, no sir" and took the time to show me the workings of the power inverter panel installed on the side of my house. The lead worker explained the process to me of what would be taking place during the install. Michael Barger, the salesman kept me apprised of the items to follow, the inspections, Fpl meter swap and final testing. I am glad I went with SEM Solar and reccomend them to all.

Fantastic company fantastic experience! I have had solar for 2 years now and save at minimum half of my old Duke power bill every month. This company has excellent follow up and very responsive to calls! I love looking at the app they have hooked up to the system to monitor my savings! Thank you SEM!!

I have had the opportunity to interact with the personnel of SEM Power regarding some equipment issues with my solar panel system and found their response to be professional on a personal and technical level. They went the extra mile to assure me that I understood the nature of the issues and their satisfactory resolution of same. I am quite satisfied with their continue willingness and efforts to make sure that their system is performing as advertised to my satisfaction.
