We received a call from a large international company about that needed quite a bit of electrical done at one of there warehouses. First we were contracted to install new power for a gutted air compressor. It basically had a tank and a motor…a three phase motor. We had to build a new electrical system for it to work and it was a little difficult but ended up being a fun job.

It was supposed to look like the photo below…

But it had nothing to our dismay. Either way we added a new 3 phase disconnect which we wee able to pull from an existing source and dedicate it for the compressor alone.

Then we ran 120′ of conduit at 43′ above grade for a new shoe-box machine. We had access to a lift that reached the height that we needed. We installed a new disconnect for the”box  machine” and although it is a 120v single phase, we connected it to one side of the disconnect and hard wired the machine to it.

Lastly, we installed 6 new quad outlets for their “Returns” area. We pulled over 1200′ of linear wire because the outlets were so far away from the service panel.

Commercial Fabrication Shop

Over the last week we have been very busy. Sorry we haven’t had time to post anything during that time. We have been installing large commercial equipment for a Fabrication Shop.

This De-burring machine is 3 phase 480v 70 amps. The machine was moved to a new location and we had to rewire it and get it working. We didn’t have a lot of time to do it being that the owner had a large order to complete. We had to remove a section of the power run and relocate it with an additional 40 ft. of conduit and wire. We installed pull boxes at two locations and attached everything to the ceiling using existing unistrut and we added several feet as well. The main sub-panel was not marked correctly so that added a little time to the project just trying to figure out which phases were going where. In the end we had the machine up in two days.

We also added a circuit for a cutting machine that took us a little over a half day to complete.

Bidding Bonanza

Every now and again we receive opportunities to bid on large projects. There is one in particular that I’m thinking of that is a job to replace all of the exterior lighting for an entire storage facility. This job is so big that it will take a crew of three men approximately 2 weeks to complete it.

The kicker is that each of the lights are about $1000 ea. and there are quite a few to replace. A lot of times you will submit a bid and never really expect it to come to pass, and then it does. On the other hand, there are those that you say to yourself “We will get this one” and it slips through you fingers. You never know.

So for now, we will continue to bid on large projects and you never know which one you’ll get until the contract is signed.

Cabazon Electrician

Here in the Inland Empire we have a very large community of commercial outlets called Desert Hills Premium Outlets and the Cabazon Outlets. There are over 100 clothing and accessory retailers, and several food service retailers. This produces opportunities for the service industry. Our company has worked there installing lighting and back in 2009 we converted a national retailer Perfumania.

This was a great opportunity and it can be lucrative for electricians, and there are always Tenant Improvements continually going on there at the Outlets.

Trailer Park Mayhem

We got a phone call from a Trailer Park that had an emergency. While digging for a new gas line a Backhoe Operator hit an electrical line that fed the Park’s main office. The Park was built in the 1960’s and the cable that the Operator hit was a direct burial multi-cable that consisted of 3 -#8 stranded copper wires.

We repaired the cable with underground conduit and two 4″ square PVC water tight j-boxes. We used liquid tight connectors on the cable and inserted the cut ends into the boxes then, we ran a 3/4″ schedule 40 PVC in between.

Here, we were putting on the rubber rings here over the cable ends which made our connection water proof.
