Be Prepared: The Impact of Weather on Your Electrical System

Extreme weather events can have a far-reaching impact on businesses and infrastructure. Besides the roof and actual building structure, you must also consider the potential for damage to the electrical system. The goal of Ridgeline Electrical Industries is to help you prevent any outages. Still, we can certainly get you back up and running if there is an unexpected storm that causes a temporary shutdown. Let’s address how you can prepare for a storm’s potential risks for your electrical infrastructure.

Electrical Maintenance, Repairs, and Service Calls

Invest in Surge Protection

You should install surge protectors and lightning arresters to shield your equipment from power surges. A lightning strike can lead to catastrophic damage if you aren’t prepared with the proper measures. Our experts can inspect your electrical grid to evaluate potential problems, correct them, and initiate preventive efforts.

Secure Backup Measures 

High winds can down power lines and leave you scrambling in an outage. That’s why it’s crucial to proactively test your generators to look for hidden problems that could fail when you need to rely on them. And, of course, all of your critical systems should have backup power sources ready to take over if you don’t already have them in place.

Establish Emergency Procedures 

Draft concise procedures for responding to emergencies, including weather-related ones. You need to establish protocols in the event of an outage, laying out your contingency plans and communication strategies. You can do everything in your power to prevent a major outage, but circumstances can happen outside of our control. That’s precisely why we are available for service calls.
