Electric Vehicle Charging

All Electric Vehicles come with a means to be connected to the power grid. The charging station that converts AC house current into DC electricity is built into the vehicle. Most models include a basic 110-volt charging unit that plugs into a standard electric outlet via a conventional three-prong plug. This is called Level 1…


3 Phase vs. Single Phase Power

  Single Phase power is a two wire Alternating Current (AC) power circuit. Most people use it every day because it’s the most common household power circuit and powers their lights, televisions and some appliances. Typically there is one power wire and one neutral wire, and power flows between the power wire (through the load)…


The Scorching Arizona Summer

Because of the warmer weather in the summer, the overall energy usage rises. Electricity demands increase drastically during the scorching Arizona summer. You can save energy by keeping window blinds, shutters or drapes closed during the daytime. Operating a refrigerator in a hot garage can cost you up to $15-$20 in electricity per month. Replacing…


Energy From Wind

Wind energy refers to the process of capturing kinetic energy using the winds that occur naturally in the earth’s atmosphere. For centuries, windmills usually were used to mill grain and  pump water. The use of windmills was increasingly widespread from the 12th century until the early 19th century. Today’s modern wind turbines only produce electrical…

Electricity From Water

Hydroelectricity is electricity produced from hydropower. Hydropower has been used since ancient times to grind flour and perform other tasks. Hydro-electric power became an electricity source in the late 19th century. Hydro-electric power plants are usually located in dams that impound rivers. In 1882, the world’s first hydro-electric power plant began operating in the United…


Smart Homes of the Future

Smart Homes of the future using the Internet of Things will require specialized electrical needs. IoT devices can include lighting, heating and air conditioning, media and security systems, and wiring for data. Wiring designs for smart homes include in-wall transmitters, whole-house surge protection, and isolating non-automation loads. The long-term benefits of a smart home include…


Static Electricity

Static electricity is named in contrast with current electricity, which flows through wires or other conductors and transmits energy. Static electricity is an imbalance of electric charges within or on the surface of a material. The charge remains until it is able to move away by means of an electric current or electrical discharge. Static…


Electrical Troubleshooting

Troubleshooting is a systematic search for the source of a problem in order to resolve it. Electrical Troubleshooting is problem solving used to repair failed electrical circuits on machinery or an electrical system. Depending on the type of equipment, troubleshooting can be a very challenging task. Troubleshooting includes identifying a probable cause for a problem,…
