Do You Know Where to Start?

If you are a building owner and not sure where to go, we can help you through the process. There can be many steps or just a few depending on the scope of work. Your project might require architects and engineers. The City and County might need to get involved. You might need a general contractor that specializes in organizing all the professionals needed to move you through your project. For instance, if you are erecting a new building, you need a General Contractor. If you are converting a large space to a bullpen and simply need electricity for receptacles and low voltage wire pulled for internet connections, a company like Bulldog Energy Solutions will suite your needs.

On-Site Review and Free Estimate

At no cost to your company, we will come out and survey your facility or work-site. We will provide you an estimate of the total cost and – in the case of retrofit projects – the amount the utility is willing to pay.

For retrofit projects, the utility typically pre-inspects the project and then reserves the funds. At the completion of the project we will invoice you for the net difference (Project Cost – Utility Incentive) and we will bill the utility for the incentive amount. We complete all of the paperwork.

Commercial HOURLY SERVICES

Available to businesses in the Greater Albuquerque Area

Is it considered an emergency?

If your electrical service need impacts your ability to properly conduct business, we consider that an emergency. Businesses need working electricity to power many working parts of day-to-day operation. Have thieves robbed you of the copper wiring to your building overnight? That’s an emergency in our eyes. 
If your power has gone out, please first contact PNM to determine if it’s an issue with the major power lines. If they then determine that the problem is more localized to your building or unit specifically, that’s when you will need to call an emergency electrician.

For the fastest service, please call – (505) 508-1085 
Please note that not all local electrician companies are equipped to work with businesses. As a full service electrical contractor, we are specifically trained and equipped to manage the needs unique to commercial buildings, multi-family living units, and larger industrial facilties.

Just a Few
Frequently Asked Questions

How Much is This Going to Cost Me?

Your out-of-pocket costs will largely depend on the kind of service requested and whether you are able to partner with an electrical utility provider or your home corporate office.

For many energy-efficient retrofit projects, rebates are available and we will work hard to get you everything you are entitled to. Many of these kind of projects see an ROI within just a few months. See our Case Studies page to see examples of how other businesses are saving money from these projects. 

For new construction or remodels, there may be funds available from other sources. Again, we will work with you to maximize all funding sources.

For commercial electrician services, we charge a local industry-standard rate of $110/hour. Reminder – these kind of services are currently only available to customers within the Greater Albuquerque Area.

How Long Will It Take?

The amount of time for the project will depend on the type of service we are providing. Some take years or months, and others might take just a few hours. 

For new construction or remodels, our role may be dependent on the status of other contractors working on the same project. Rest assured that when it comes time for our techinicians to do their work, they will show-up with a high work ethic and determination to complete their work accurately and efficiently.

For lighting retrofits, we can usually complete the work itself in a matter of hours or a couple days, with the overall process of utility company involvement lasting over the span of a few months. Larger buildings or spaces in which there are many tall ceilings may require more than a single day to accomodate the increased time it takes to replace each light.

For most commercial hourly projects, we can often complete the work within the same day.

Will Service Disrupt Any of My Daily Business Operations?

This would mostly apply to lighting retrofits, building controls, and commerical hourly services.

We do everything we can so that your Business and Operations are affected as little as possible. We frequently work nights and weekends so as not to disrupt your day to day operations.

In most cases, we are able to complete our work by cutting power in just specific sections. It is extrememely rare that we would need to completely shut off the power for your entire building.

In some cases where we are working on external lighting or signage, we may need to reserve parking spaces or driveways for our equipment. Our sales staff would work with you specifically to arrange the safest and most convenient way to block off these areas.

How Do Utility Rebates Work?

At no cost to your company, we will come out and survey your facility. We will provide you an estimate of the total cost and the amount the utility is willing to pay. The utility typically pre-inspects the project and then reserves the funds. At the completion of the project we will invoice you for the net difference (Project Cost – Utility Incentive) and we will bill the utility company for the incentive amount. We complete all of the paperwork.
