Electricity is fundamental in the modern world, providing an energy source for many building systems, home appliances, and even our mobile electronic gadgets. With electrical engineering services, you can make sure your building has a safe power supply. Ideally, electrical installations should also be designed for efficient operation, reducing power bills in the long run.
The National Electrical Code (NEC) from the National Fire Protection Association, also known as the NFPA 70 standard, is the main reference document for all electrical installations in the USA. Local electrical codes are normally based on the NEC, adding specific requirements for the corresponding state or city.
Electrical engineers are highly familiarized with the NEC, since it provides the requirements for sizing all types of electrical components, from the main service equipment to the smaller circuits powering receptacles and lighting fixtures.
