UK Electric, LLC was founded on November 16th, 2006 by Graham and Janet Pattison with the intent to provide its customers with unparalleled quality and workmanship in the electrical contracting field.
Starting with electrical for the retail grocery industry which encompasses ground up, remodel, lighting retrofits, service and maintenance of both the electrical distribution systems, refrigeration controls and EMS systems for companies including but not limited to Safeway, Inc, Krogers Ranch Market. This led UK Electric to expand into the gasoline dispensing industry. This area of work was then expanded to include Circle K convenience and gas facilities. Fuel dispensing is a specialty electrical installation that most electrical contractors avoid because of the additional knowledge and understanding their employees need of the National Electric Code. This requires them to work within classifications such as Class 1 Division 1 and 2 locations at fueling dispenser and tank locations.
The Photovoltaic Solar power generation industry (PV) has been a point of interest for Graham which prompted him in early 2009 to pursue additional trained personnel and training for UK Electric’s employees through CED Greentech, Solar Depot, and Jim Dunlop Solar. While working with larger potential commercial PV Solar customers UK Electric, LLC established a sizable list of residential PV solar projects.
UK Electric, LLC also provides services as a direct vendor to Safeway, Inc, Circle K, Magellan Aerospace, Victory Property Management, Liberty Water, Hill Phoenix Comprehensive Services and many others.
Electrical Contracting Services
New construction using the latest state of the art techniques in energy savings and management from the point of connection at the electric utility to the receptacle in the wall ground up construction covers everything in the electrical distribution system.
Fuel or gasoline dispensing facilities require a special knowledge of explosion proof apparatus and devices and most electricians or electrical contractors never have the opportunity to work with these classifications.
Remodel construction is the most difficult to estimate and the most challenging to perform as the need to keep customer services up and running during the remodel is paramount to a successful project.
Tenant improvements incorporate an existing shell building with a new improvement to meet the tenants specific needs as a business, this could include a 60,000 sqft Ranch Market grocery store or a 320 sqft coffee kiosk.
Lighting retrofits and upgrades include progressive companies like Safeway, Inc who have programs for changing old technology such as T12 fluorescent lighting to current energy efficient LED’s.
Lighting maintenance for business complexes are vital to help facilities attract new customers while maintaining existing customers or tenants and helps control rising energy costs by maintaining the lighting fixtures in working order.
Electrical controls and energy management systems are key to a energy efficient building by controlling what is on and when it is on at the same time having the ability to change and maintain these parameters locally or from a remote location.
Photovoltaic (PV) Solar electric generating plants for residential and commercial applications involve structural installations of PV modules or panels that will last 20 years or more along with a direct current to alternating current electrical system through an inverter that is connected to strings of modules in series and then connected in parallel to achieve the desired voltage and current which is called an array.
Electrical power quality can be a nightmare for maintenance electricians and facilities managers that is why combining a good understanding of electrical distribution systems and the training in the right testing equipment can be an asset that all building types can use.
