Stewart Park Light Installation
Commercial Project – Perth Brewery
The Perth Brewery Co. has been a local business since 1993, after moving to their current location in Dufferin Square (Hwy 7) in ‘97 they trusted and hired Electric Circuit to complete their largest electrical upgrade to date in 2023.
This recent upgrade may have been the largest, but they have trusted Electric Circuit with many extensive upgrades over the years to increase the quality and speed of production within their business. In January 2023, Electric Circuit increased the Brewery’s 400 amp service to 600 amp. In doing so, the team had to work in close collaboration with not only ESA but also Ontario Hydro One, efficient communication, and a strong work ethic ensured this project was completed on time and within budget.
What made this project so intense?
Due to the extensive upgrade, Hydro One was required to give official notification to all businesses within Dufferin Square – which currently hosts over ten local businesses to date – that their electrical power would be temporarily unavailable. The team at Electric Circuit ensured that these businesses would not be negatively impacted by coordinating the project to be completed after hours.
Beginning at 5:00pm and working until 5:00am, Perth Brewery’s upgrade was completed overnight after 12 hours of electrical work and a total of six licensed electricians and apprentices. All of the Brewery’s existing main service wire was required and successfully replaced from the transformer to the main switch gear in order to be able to maintain the 600 amp service. Though the hands-on electrical work may have been completed, there were still the final steps to ensure power could be returned to the entire Dufferin Square as well as obtaining ESA Final Certification.
Following completion of the electrical work, a team from Ontario Hydro One was brought in to replace the main transformer. An ESA Inspector then reviewed and approved the work completed for meeting all safety requirements, and giving Ontario Hydro One confirmation that all electrical power could be returned to Dufferin Square in time for them to open for regular business hours. The ESA Inspector then sent an official Certificate of Approval to Electric Circuit within 24 hours of project inspection.
