Florida Sol Systems was founded in 1989. Our founder Sira Valido ran a marketing and sales contractor for The cable tv provider. She saw a desperate need for a quality, reliable audit, and installation contractor that would fulfill service orders. She decided to open FSS and fill that gap. Within a few short years, FSS was the contractor of choice employing 100 technicians and covering all of South Florida. After years of success in the cable tv installation and service order fulfillment division, in 1997, I graduated high school. I decided to join the business while going to tech school for fiber optics. At this point, Sira and I decided to get into the tele Communications construction business and start doing underground and aerial construction For the cable company. We knocked on doors and were given an opportunity by a local operations manager. We opened our utility construction division and started working. After a few years of doing underground utility work, we decided to diversify our client base to keep staff busy as the cable company was unreliable. We were allowed to do street light installation work. Shortly after that, we expanded our services thru the electrical business until we started doing all types of work for FPL. Around 2002 we participated in a bid to do network construction for the FPL fiber net. We were awarded that contract and would hold it for over eight years doing system maintenance and new fiber network installation in Mimi Dade Broward and Palm Beach. Always looking for ways to grow and diversify, In 2011, FSS acquired a Miami-based Signalization contractor and started performing streetlight and Signalization services for roadway civil contractors, FDOT, and local municipalities. We continue to provide all of the services mentioned above and more. We own all our equipment and have over 55 industry professionals.

“30 years keeping our community energized and connected.”
