New Service Installations

Island Electric Co. provides complete electrical power services for businesses in Nanaimo and the surrounding area. One of our most popular commercial services is providing power, also known as electrical service installation.

We offer service installation (and upgrades) from 100A/120V to a whopping 1600A/600V, in single-phase and three-phase applications.

    We’re experienced in providing power to all types of businesses, including:

    • Retail stores

    • Strip malls
    • Indoor malls
    • Restaurants
    • Campgrounds
    • Salons
    • Marinas

    When installing new service, it’s important to plan ahead and understand your power needs, both now and in the future.

    The commercial sector is constantly changing. Businesses are expanding, moving, and keeping up with the times – and new technologies. With that comes different power needs and requirements.

    Our Nanaimo electricians understand these challenges, and are prepared to meet them for you.

    Ensuring we have accounted for all of your current and future power requirements will save you money in the long run.

    Upgrading Existing Service

    If you’re taking on a renovation or remodeling project at your business, you may be required to upgrade your existing service to meet the demands of your updates.

    Contact Island Electric Co. and bring us in to provide a load calculation for your building or business.

    Once we’ve completed testing, we’ll determine if the project you’re planning requires a service upgrade, or if you’re safe to stick with what you have.

    Our knowledgeable team of electricians is ready to help you with your commercial power upgrade. You’ll have the peace of mind knowing you and your business will be looked after, now and into the future.

    Minimizing Disruption

    When installing new service or upgrading existing power, Island Electric Co. works closely with BC Hydro to ensure a smooth transition of power.

    Our goal is to minimize disruption to the daily operation of your business while ensuring our work is done to the highest of standards.

    3-Phase Power Installations & Conversions

    Island Electric Co. provides electric power generation, transmission, and distribution installation of 3-phase power systems, most commonly used in commercial or industrial situations.

    3-phase electrical systems help to prevent power fluctuation, while providing a constant and efficient power transfer with a balanced linear load – all while using less wiring to do the job.

    If your project draws large currents of electricity, a 3-phase setup may be the right choice for you. Contact us to learn more.

    As a BC Hydro Power Smart Alliance Member, Island Electric Co. can help you take advantage of rebates and deals offered by BC Hydro.
