Underground Conversions for Electric Power Lines

A natural disaster can happen at any time, but hurricanes, and flooding are something you can prepare for so you are ready before it’s too late.

The 2022 Atlantic hurricane season has officially begun and it’s time to have your preparedness plan in place before a named storm is on its way. It’s super important for residents to understand what they need to do to protect their homes. A common impact of a tropical storm or hurricane is loss of power for days or weeks before power can be restored. The licensed electricians at Emerald Isle Electric are ready to help you with a safe and cost-effective solution. Whole house or standby generators are a great solution, but they can be cost prohibitive for some people. Portable generators are more affordable, but running an extension cord in bad weather can be dangerous.

The experts at Emerald Isle Electric can professionally wire your portable generator at your home. This solution makes using a generator safer for you while providing a more cost-effective alternative power solution giving you and your family peace of mind.

Connecting your portable generator to your home can be done in two ways:

  1. Our licensed electricians at Emerald Isle Electric can install a manual transfer switch, which is connected to specific circuits that are most likely to be needed even when the power is out. In the case of a power outage, the transfer switch can be powered on.
  2. Emerald Isle Electric can upgrade your electrical panel with an interlock device and the generator is wired directly eliminating the rick of running an extension cord in bad weather. During a power outage, simply lift the interlock lever, power the generator on, and then select the circuits you want to power. This will give you more flexibility to choose the things you want to use during a power outage.

If you are looking for an affordable way to keep your family safe and comfortable during a power outage in Palm Beach or Broward County, call the expert electricians at Emerald Isle Electric today (561) 303-5475!
