Three-Phase Sub Panel Installation in Columbia

Three-Phase Sub Panel Installation in Columbia tristar electric

If you need three-phase sub-panel installation in Columbia, contact TriStar Electric!

Commercial buildings depend on three-phase wiring to power them. Circuits for commercial machinery, motors, lighting, and HVAC systems use three-phase power or transform from three-phase power into single-phase power. Some buildings use sub-panels to control electrical flow further. These panels are essential in maintaining the electrical system of your commercial building. TriStar Electric has the knowledge, training, and experience to install three-phase sub-panels in your office, warehouse, or other commercial facilities. If you need three-phase sub-panel installation in Columbia, contact TriStar Electric!

What Is a Sub Panel?

Sub-panels use three-phase electricity to power different electric machines and devices. Three-phase power uses three paths of alternating current (AC) to create a strong, consistent current. This power runs through the sub-panels to power three-phase equipment.

A sub-panel works similarly to the main panel, except that the ground and neutral bus bars are separate. A sub-panel is necessary when there is not enough room to add more circuit breakers in the main panel or if it is more convenient to keep the circuit breakers close to the appliances that use those circuits.

Meter & Submeter Installation Services

A meter between the nearest transformer and the main panel will read how much electricity the building uses, allowing electrical companies to know how much to charge. This usage has its measurement in watts. Submeters can allow subsections of commercial buildings to read electrical use in further detail. For example, apartment buildings often install submeters in individual apartments so the renter can pay their bill for the electricity they use in their unit.
