1. Determine What is Critical to Your Operation:
We systematically identify safety risks and financial risks, as well as determine what electrical testing and maintenance procedures are already in place.
2. Perform a Comprehensive Survey of Your Electrical Distribution System:
We will complete an in-depth inventory of the electrical components in your facility and identify the most critical areas for your operation. We will evaluate the current condition of all equipment and develop recommendations for which pieces should be the highest priority.
3. Develop a Customized Maintenance Program:
Your facility’s maintenance program will include cost justification, safety compliance recommendations, and arc flash recommendations. In addition, the program will be carefully crafted to stay within your budget constraints.
Our extensive industry expertise and proven practices allow us to exceed expectations every time. We promise to provide you with the most advanced, thorough, and cost-effective program available on the market.

- Business Interruptions: Power surges, spikes, transients, and poor preventive maintenance can cause damage on a regular basis. These events wear down components and eventually cause premature failure. The more power your facility uses, the greater the risk of failure. Electrical failures are inevitable without preventive maintenance.
- Life/Safety Risks: According to the National Fire Protection Association, “A well-administered electrical preventive maintenance program will reduce accidents, save lives, minimize costly breakdowns and unplanned shutdowns of equipment.”
- Utility Costs: The National Energy Management Institute states that, “Improperly torqued connections and bad contacts cause increased amperage draw and power loss as well as heating and arcing (which is both ineffective and dangerous).” Without preventive maintenance, the distribution system can waste electricity, costing you more in utility bills.
- Power Quality Analysis: Power quality problems cause loss of data and malfunction of computerized equipment.
- Surge Suppression: Surge protection systems protect your facility from lightning damage and transients.
- Insurance/Certification: Insurance companies lose millions of dollars each year due to electrical failure. When insurance companies lose, so do their customers. More and more, insurance companies are encouraging their customers to participate in electrical preventive maintenance. It’s a saving for all.
- Asset Management: Keeping concise records, following-up on repairs, monitoring the operating parameters and conditions, and working safely are the keys to success. The average life expectancy of your electrical distribution system is only 17 years when electrical preventive maintenance is not performed. When your electrical system is cared for, its life expectancy can be 35 years.
- Manufacturers’ Recommendations: All manufacturers of electrical equipment require periodic maintenance. A TEGG Service Contractor can meet those requirements and maximize the life of your facility’s electrical distribution system.
- Cost-Benefit Analysis: Let us work with you to perform a cost-benefit analysis to determine the value of electrical preventive maintenance in your particular facility.
