High voltage electrical needs are not limited to industrial electrical customers. Many commercial businesses also require high-voltage electrical services to deliver power to their customers and keep their businesses running. Here are some examples of the types of commercial customers that require high-voltage electrical services:
1. Large Office Complexes
Large office complexes, whether they are in skyscrapers, or spread out office parks require a tremendous amount of power to function. These complexes require reliable electrical power for lights, heating and cooling, elevators, telecommunication centers, computer operations, and much more. These businesses require transformers to bring power from the grid to these buildings and robust power distribution systems to deliver it.
2. Retail Stores
Today’s retail space features large, open spaces requiring extensive lighting systems, heating and cooling controls, elevators and escalators, power for plumbing, security systems, and much more. The commercial electrical services required gets even more important and complicated if this is a large shopping center or mall.
Hotels have the same lighting and temperature control needs as office complexes and stores, but also experience variable power demand based on the current occupancy in the building. This makes high-voltage power automation systems critical to optimize energy usage to keep energy costs low to maintain profitability. Some large hotels also install high-voltage backup generators available in the event of a power outage.
4. Healthcare Facilities
A lot of medical equipment requires a tremendous amount of power. MRI machines, surgical lasers, robotic surgery systems, and more. The power supplied to medical facilities must also be robust and consistent so that surges and brownouts do not damage the delicate equipment. Rugged backup generators also need to be installed to keep life-saving equipment operational when the main power grid is offline. This power needs to be consistent and transition smoothly from the main grid to the backup generators when taking care of patients during an emergency. This requires the installation of specialized high-voltage power lines and transformers to ensure the smooth transmission of power into the medical facility.
Restaurants are another business that requires flexible lighting and temperature controls, but also need to power high-voltage food preparation equipment such as room-sized refrigerators and freezers, smoke and odor filtration systems, and cooking equipment.
