Electrical Renovations, Small Projects, and Additions

Electrical renovations and additions are the process of upgrading or adding electrical systems to a building or structure. This can be a necessary task for businesses and organizations that want to keep their electrical systems up-to-date and to meet the needs of their expanding operations.

There are several reasons why electrical renovations and additions may be necessary:

  • Upgrading old electrical systems: Older electrical systems may not be able to meet the current electrical demands of a business or organization. Upgrading these systems can improve safety and reliability.
  • Adding new electrical circuits: When a business or organization expands, it may need to add new electrical circuits to accommodate the increased electrical load.
  • Adding new electrical equipment: When a business or organization adds new electrical equipment, it may need to add new electrical circuits or upgrade existing circuits to accommodate the additional load.
  • Improving safety: Electrical renovations and additions can improve safety by upgrading outdated electrical systems and by adding new safety features, such as ground-fault circuit interrupters (GFCIs).
  • Improving energy efficiency: Electrical renovations and additions can improve energy efficiency by upgrading to more energy-efficient lighting and appliances.

The electrical load of modern office equipment, facility machinery, or home appliances can wreak havoc on an older electrical system. Because of that, there comes a time when the current electrical infrastructure needs to be renovated, retrofitted, or have an upgrade done. That is when you need a knowledgeable licensed electrical service company to guide you through the planning process and complete the work quickly and safely.

How Watson Can Help

Business and Commercial

Working with us to determine what upgrades are needed will help to ensure that your electrical system becomes National Electrical Code compliant, helps to reduce operating costs and increases the overall safety of the building. This process starts with Watson Energy conducting an Energy Audit, which consists of studying, assessing, measuring, and analyzing the whole electrical system.

Some components include but are not limited to:

  • Substations or transformers
  • Power distribution system (PCC, MCC)
  • Metering and monitoring system
  • Motors
  • Blowers and fans
  • Compressors
  • Pumps
  • Lighting

After the electrical energy audit, we will discuss with you our suggested upgrades and create a plan of action to get it all completed with as little disruption as possible to your productivity. The outcome is an increased, energy-efficient electrical system.


Regardless if you are working with a newer system or an aged system, knowing how to plan and execute electrical renovations and retrofits takes great skill. At Watson Energy, our team is dedicated to sharpening their skills and engage in training throughout the year. It is this dedication our team will bring to your project.

A few of the more typical items in renovations and retrofits:

  • Panel Upgrades
  • Outlets
  • Modern technology like USB ports
  • Recessed lighting
  • Under-cabinet lighting
  • Hallway and staircase lighting
  • Three-way switches
  • Entertainment System Installation
