TWE just finished a HUGE 12,000sqft. mansion south of Sherwood Park, checkout the smart lighting panels we did in this one! This house had over 350 potlights in it, 3 sub-panels, tons of cool accent lighting and specialty features. We installed (2) TESLA 90amp chargers, these chargers are capable of giving a TESLA full charge in 15mins. Of course a house this size needs mega power right, well we installed a 400amp service to this shack. Did you know FORTIS will sometimes help out with the upgrade fees on new builds? It really depends on the situation but we have seen before where FORTIS has contributed a portion of the upgrade fee for a new build to help the customer out with getting them a larger service, again totally project dependant but something worth checking into if you are building a new house. It has been nice to see new technology such as LED lighting bring down power consumption on our homes, but a direct swap with that has been higher draw items such as car chargers, hot-tubs, upgraded kitchen equipment, etc. So while I thought my power bill would go down converting to LED, it has pretty much stayed the same because of the other items I’ve added. Something you can do though to help out, install smart devices such as occupancy sensors or timer switches for lighting, this way when you are gone from the room they shut the lights off automatically and you aren’t paying for something you don’t need, or smart switches and you can program them to do whatever you want right from the app. We install this kind of power saving technology all the time, ask us today for a free quote!
