Electric Idea- October

Monday, October 15, 2012

There was a “time” when “hot off the presses” really meant something in the world of printing right? Not a “time” that our juvenile employees remember, surely, but there are some in the office who stare off into the distance, eyes hazed, remembering way back when.

Well, you’ve been waiting for the October edition of Electric Ideas haven’t you, and it’s hot off the presses waiting for you too!

The options are endless.

October finale is this unique stone abode.  We determined the electrical service must be fed from underground and haven’t come to a solid conclusion as to whether it is a 100amp or 200amp panel board.

Happy trails!
Power. Current. Grounded.
