Local Electrical Contractors Have Your Safety In Mind

On August 29, 2005, Hurricane Katrina ravaged the Gulf Coast, leaving thousands of home and business owners in a lurch. While many lost everything, those who still had buildings to come back to were still in trouble. They had no utilities – no water, no gas, and no electricity.

Electrician Safely Checking Voltage

The Electrical Contractor magazine recently indicated that in the years before Katrina, electricians and electrical contractors in the Mississippi Gulf area worked approximately 400,000 man hours. In 2006, those numbers shot up to more than 1.6 million as electricians worked harder than ever to restore power to the area, transport and implement widespread generator installation. Now, 5 years later and in the midst of a recession, the numbers are lower than ever. Contractors once based in the Louisiana area now scattering across the country to look for work and the ones who stayed behind are still struggling.

Those of us in Delaware, especially lower DE around Dover and further south, understand how the coast is impacted by the weather. While we may not be in line for something as devastating as Katrina, we have been hit by some major storms and the chances of a hurricane, tropical depression, or winter storm coming up the coast shouldn’t be ignored.

It’s important to find a good electrician and electrical contractor licensed in your state upon moving into your home. At Conductive Electrical Contracting, we work hard to build relationships with our customers – getting to know their needs and helping them not only to make repairs but to keep their homes safe and decrease the need for emergency repairs, whether they’re related to the weather or not.

Electrical safety is our #1 priority.  Contact us if you have questions about your home, or how your power is usually affected during storms or the winter season. We’d love to hear from you!
