Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Will my temporary power be supplied by my utility company, or by some fuel source?
Temporary power systems have a lot of different options depending on the configuration of the job site and distance from power access. If the job site is a reasonable distance within power access, you can use a wired setup to connect to a permanent utility source. Otherwise, you will have to use a generator which requires a fuel source.
Is it possible to install an underground temporary power system?
Most temporary power systems in construction sites utilize overhead power solutions, since it is the most cost-efficient solution. However, underground solutions are also available for projects which require temporary power to be routed underground.
Are inspections or permits required for a temporary power system?
According to the ESA, a notification of work must be filed for all electrical work completed in Ontario. Regardless of whether you are using a wired setup or a gas-powered generator, you will need to comply with all regulations and permits required according to the ESA.
