More Efficient and Cleaner Power Tips

#5. Heavy duty copiers and laser printers should be connected to individual 20 Amp branch circuits.

Heavy duty photo copiers and laser printers create high surges from current which create a boost in the neutral to ground voltage. This process can possibly harm other electronic equipment and computers if they happen to be on the exact branch circuit.

Renters Rights to Safety vs. Lawless Landlords

Epic fail E2

 

If you are a renter in the Phoenix Valley, you probably are not aware that any repairs to electrical systems must be performed by a licensed and bonded qualified electrician.  This is the law of the land in Arizona, and landlords don’t always follow these safety measures intended to protect you.

 

G&S Electric Inc. supports the DIY’ers and the handymen that provide many great services to valley homeowners.  If you own your own home, it is legal to hire a handy man to perform work on electrical wiring, plumbing, or construction.  There is nothing wrong with exercising that liberty.  However, when a property owner becomes a landlord, they are responsible for the life and safety of others.  As a renter, you have rights to protect your health and well being.  Many laws are passed to prevent bodily harm or physical injury as a result of under qualified workmanship.

 

Take a look at some of the photos below that show the types of workmanship we have seen when called in by renters to look at apartment units and houses.  In one scenario, we arrived to help install and run new lines for a water heater that had bursted and flooded out part of the living area.  We were very disappointed to see that the landlord had exposed electrical wiring laying on the ground that could have caused severe shock.  As qualified union member licensed and bonded electricians servicing Phoenix Arizona, G&S Electric Inc. will inform tenants of their rights.  We will look out for your safety and the safety of your family by making sure the landlord completes all repairs needed to be legally within code at the landlords expense.  Exposed romex and electrical wiring are not what anyone should expect from a handyman, but worse than that, it is illegal in rental properties.

 

As top rated Tempe licensed electricians, G&S Electrical Inc. must stay up to date with the laws regarding safety.  Did you know that a new law was passed in Phoenix requiring homes to upgrade to new 10 year sealed battery powered smoke detectors?  The new power source code requirements passed this April are intended to protect homeowners and renters.  Know your rights as a tenant to keep your family safe!

 

As a local, small business of high ranked electricians serving Sun City to San Tan Valley, G&S Electric Inc., has been working with landlords, tenants, and homeowners as their preferred electrician for over 20 years.  We have worked on all kinds of electrical problems, from new water heater wiring to new air conditioning electrical conduit.  While our qualified electricians are not HVAC certified, our long history has established great partnerships in the valley like the one we have with Rich Gordon of Inline Mechanical (480-251-0738).  Rich, a licensed heating and air conditioning repairman, has the same quality of service and integrity of performance that G&S Electric Inc. stands behind.  Like G&S Electric Inc. he performs his own diagnostics and only recommend the right fix, regardless of cost.  It’s partnerships like that with Rich that makes calling G&S Electric Inc. sort of a one stop service point for all of your electrical/household needs.  If we are not certified to do the work, we probably have a partnership with a best-in-class service professional for that need.

 

G&S Electric Inc. wants all of you homeowners to stay safe this summer and stay cool.  If you are a renter, know your rights and ensure top quality electrical service by only licensed bonded electricians.  If you are a landlord, give us a call with any questions, upgrades, or service needs.  We will gladly work with you to ensure you are up to code and your investment is protected.  Sometimes it is not about being good or bad, but just knowing the correct action to take.

Futurama to end the Solar Drama

 

As one of Arizona’s premier roof top solar experts , G&S Electric Inc. is often confused and bewildered by what seems to be an attack against the progressive technology that will lead our country into an era of energy independence. It is challenging being one of the best community resources for solar energy, and see our state taking disincentive measures applied to the growing industry that was roof top solar. From the APS rate increase and additional fee approved by the Arizona Corporation Commission to the latest interpretation of Arizona Tax code by the Arizona Department of Disincentive Revenue, we have witnessed and rallied alongside prominent republicans and democrats alike to defend the once booming solar industry. APS’s own reports show an astounding 40% decrease in roof top solar applications. Last December, the Arizona Corporation Commission Chairmen Bob Stump tweeted that our factual based coverage of the debates and pending decline in solar industry growth a bunch of lies and misinformation. We would like to ask Arizona Corporation Commission Mr. Bob Stump, if he still feels there has been no damage to our local economy as a result of the increases he approved? Does Arizona Corporation Commission Chairman Bob Stump still feel our reporting is guided by lies and misinformation?

In our attempts to be rooftop solar experts that reported on both sides of the argument, we even wrote on the positive advances APS has taken in places like Flagstaff Arizona to build their own solar power stations. G&S Electric Inc. reported on the downsides of a grid responsible power company forced to deal with potential insolvency as a new generation of solar adopters see the clear choice in our clean energy independence future. There is a valid argument by the holding company that runs the biggest managing interest in the Palo Verde Nuclear Plant to ensure they retain enough income to withstand the transition to roof top solar power generation. However, G&S Electric Inc. has also stated that the knee jerk reactionary measures taken by big money interests like the Koch Brothers and the American Legislative Exchange Council demonstrate a demonstrative step that does less to create a smooth transition to the future of energy and is more geared toward mitigating the energy industry risks regarding distributed energy for investors as reported by the Edison Electric Institute.

The millions of dollars being spent to protect the interests of billion dollar investors is aimed at the individual citizen and small roof top solar leasing and installation companies that may not have the capital backing to adopt solar or maintain a profitable solar installation start-up. Rather than using the millions to off-set investor risk in a way that promotes the transition to solar, the funds are being used to slow the industry.

Industry giants may be able to slow the current pace of progress but when nations like Japan are looking to build solar farms in space and turn science fiction into reality, we know that the future of solar energy cannot be stopped. After suffering the impacts of nuclear reactor meltdowns, Japan is looking to have completed in 20 years a prototype of an orbital solar farm that could use microwaves to beam energy back to earth. While this technology is decades away from reality, the investment in the future possibilities is what keeps our industry exciting and invigorating. While the price tag to have a energy power station facility with this advanced technology is in the billions of dollars, the fact remains that the science required to create a working model still needs to be funded and researched. When nations take on these challenges it sends a message to old fossil fuel based energy giants that their days are indeed numbered. I doubt G&S Electric Inc. will be a part of solar energy farms in space, but in the mean time, back on the ground here at Earth, we will continue to fight for the solar power generating installations we are putting on roof tops all across Arizona, at Arizona State University, and on the tops of commercial parking shade structures all over the valley.

ALEC, APS, and the ACC (Strike 1, Strike 2, Strike 3 -Solar’s OUT!!)

The LA Times reports that Republican Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin has issued an executive order on the legislation recently passed which imposes a roof top solar fee like that approved by the Arizona Corporation Commission in November of 2013. The article states that constituents who align themselves with Tea Party and Libertarian ideas feel the additional fee is an imposed tax that limits free market choices. The difference between Oklahoma and Arizona is that the voters are loud enough to oust a Governor for inaction, while Republican Arizona Governor Jan Brewer is not seeking re-election.

 

The Arizona Corporation Commission only has jurisdiction over Arizona “Public” Service, because it is not an entity of the public, like SRP, but rather -a holding company that trades its commodity on the market and has privately held investors as well as publicly traded stock through parent company Pinnacle West Capital Corp.

 

Unable to control the abundant energy available from renewable energy solutions, and to secure their own profits, those who paid high costs and invested heavily in the utility systems we rely on each morning must slow the pace of the advancing energy independence or find other ways to maximize their profits. In order to guarantee rates of return and keep investing dollars rolling in, large utilities and investors rely on organizations like the American Legislation Exchange Council to create and promote policies which strengthen the oligopolies that control the nations power and resources. The policies are passed into state level laws or adopted by governing bodies such as the Arizona Corporation Commission.

 

The organization of fossil and nuclear fuel dominated private sector members and state appointed or elected legislator members, American Legislation Exchange Council (ALEC), is largely funded and influenced through the multi-billion dollar petro-chemical industry giants, Koch Industries. Three Arizona Corporation Commissioners (Brenda Burns, Bob Stump, and Bob Burns) are members of ALEC, with commissioner Gary Pierce aligned completely with the outrageous original $50-$100/month fee requested by APS. Citing financial or economical reasons, APS stated it left ALEC in April 2012. However, in November of 2012 APS did pay substantial membership fees to the Energy, Environment, and Agriculture Task Force operated by ALEC.

 

Like a junkie that keeps going back for a fix, we only fantasize about the clarity sobriety of energy independence offers. Our manufacturer, dealer, and pimp of vice; those who control power and resources -have little interest in our advancement toward more beneficial and healthier options. It is the struggle of economics, the have to much and want more versus the wants a fair chance.

 

Measured by a cost benefit analysis of profits and losses for the multitude of impacted local small businesses, can the public know if our governing bodies are correctly upholding their obligations and the interests of Arizona voters? What do your local solar supporters balance sheets indicate? Are revenues on the rise? Are solar industry jobs on the rise? Are ad’s for new electrical journeymen dominating the employment sections of local media? Are solar investments funneling into the state of Arizona? Does a year over year comparison show a negative impact?

 

Congratulations to small business owners of Oklahoma. The governor’s executive order to limit fees to a “last resort option” is a small nudge toward energy independence and the free market system that organizations like ALEC purport. Or, is it just pandering to an election cycle which happens to have an unrecompensed benefit to the solar industry?

 

G&S Electric Inc. wants our customers to be educated about the influences on their ability to benefit from solar energy. We are a small business of top rated solar solutions and have the best rated electricians in the valley. We continue to stand for Arizona solar solutions and hope we return to the policies that would have made Arizona a global leader in the adoption of roof top solar and renewable energy through solar resources.

 

Choose solar. Choose Energy Independence. Choose Prosperity for Arizona.

Arizona Department of Revenue now called the Department of Disincentive

Pro Solar rally in Phoenix

Pro Solar rally in Phoenix

“A tax is nothing more than disincentive for promotion, for industry, and for the free market system” was the quote heard by T.U.S.K. co-chairman Barry Goldwater Jr. on June 4th as he addressed a crowd of hundreds. The organization, Tell Utilities Solar won’t be Killed, and solar industry companies held a brief and impressive well organized rally last Wednesday in front of the Arizona State Capitol to petition Republican Governor Jan Brewer to not allow the Arizona Department of Revenue to tax leased roof top solar systems. Mr. Goldwater was also quoted as saying the tax on leased solar systems is “not the American way, not the Republican way, and certainly if you are a conservative, you don’t believe in taxes.” So why is Republican Governor Jan Brewer allowing the Department of Revenue to Tax Leased Solar Systems?

 

The Arizona self named “Solar Queen” Governor has stated that she would support a bill that crossed her desk preventing the taxation of leased solar systems, however, at this time one has not been proposed. She has also stated that she will not interfere with the policies of the Department of Revenue. Goldwater’s response to Arizona’s State Chief Executive? “They work for her. She has the authority to step in. She has influence. She can make that happen.”

 

There is already a state law that exempts property taxation on homeowners who purchase or own photovoltaic panels. However, under a review process, the Arizona Department of Disincentive has determined that the owners of the leased panels like SolarCity and SunRun should be taxed like any other power generating utility company. It is important to understand that the homeowners themselves are not being taxed, but the companies that own the systems must now carry a heavy burden for supplying clean renewable energy to the utility grid.

 

While the companies which sell leased systems are within their rights to pass on the expense to their customers (a risk in purchasing a leased system) they at this time are claiming that the new tax burden will remain on their balance sheets. For smaller leasing rooftop solar companies, this could mean shutting their doors and closing down their business. That in turn may leave many homeowners who purchased leased systems without a servicing company. Worse yet, those leased systems may have to be removed if the smaller installation companies are forced to close shop!!

 

G&S Electric Inc. has always advised its customers against purchasing a leased system due to the risks involved in lack of ownership. We are sad to see our warnings taking such a harsh turn toward reality. As a business owner, we decided long ago that selling leased systems was not the type of product G&S Electric Inc. could stand behind. We needed a product that had permanence, reliability, warranties based on the units themselves not based on the companies providing services. We opted to only sell solely owned rooftop solar systems.

 

Property value increases can only be realized with true ownership of a rooftop system. Laws are already on the books protecting homeowners who own rooftop solar systems. A leased system is not as secure an investment. If a company goes bankrupt or has financial troubles, they may be able to take back the panels they own. Like leasing a car, leasing solar panels comes with many risks. Buying a system and owning outright allows homeowners to know their investment is safe and permanent. This is the only type of product G&S Electric Inc. can stand behind.

 

However, not everyone can afford to own their own system. As supporters of rooftop solar, we are not against or in competition with leased systems. We fully support leased rooftop solar systems for people who feel it is the right choice for them. We stood by T.U.S.K. on June 4th and rallied right along with Solar City, SunRun, and many many other solar advocates. This taxation on leased solar panels is wrong for Arizona and harmful for the solar industry. G&S Electric Inc. believes, like the hundreds of people out that day on the state capitol lawns, and like many signs and shirts read: “Rooftop Solar is RIGHT!!”

Solar Wars -State of Scourge

Net Metering

Net Metering

 

 

Does it take an accountant to understand that a 40% decline in any year over year quarter is indicative of a drastic shift in consumer demand? G&S Electric Inc.’s accountant would probably tell you, “No.”

 

The ACC denied that there would be a negative impact to small businesses like G&S Electric Inc, when we (Arizona Voters, Union Electricians, local Small Business Owners, and International Corporations) stood before the ACC last November and asked that they consider the negative impact to the “local solar economy.” The concern of the public, the businesses supporting the industry, and large international corporate investors was a predicted decrease in consumer demand for roof top solar installations based on the proposed additional fees.

 

Additionally, members of the ACC Staff concluded in their report that the solar net-metering fee was not necessary and no changes should be made until the next rate hearing scheduled for 2016. The concern was also with regard to slowing the adoption of solar solutions by decreasing demand creating financial damage to the solar industry.

 

The ACC responded to their own staff recommendations, G&S Electric Inc’s own Director of Sales Matt Taft, and thousands of other community members stating that a justifiable financial need was demonstrated by the utility commodity producer, manager, distributor, and holding company, APS.

 

APS (the money maker of its publicly traded parent company) is the largest owner of the Palo Verde Nuclear Power Generating Station at 29.1%. It was awarded the increased revenue via the additional fee imposed upon customers of APS which adopt roof top solar energy options in order for the commodity producer, seller, trade benefactor, and managing partner to remain solvent and profitable.

 

The Arizona solar industry that was booming has suddenly taken a 40% decrease in demand. Small businesses’ ability to maintain revenues and profit margins has diminished and companies must operate on tighter budgets. The State of Arizona is not able actualize the benefit from business to business sales, business to consumer sales, employment of diversified skilled labor and highly trained educated graduates, the ability to employ new electrical journeymen and all the supporting businesses like t-shirt makers, logo printers, web developers, electronic funds processors, local vehicle service shops, graphic artists, and media content management start-ups…

 

G&S Electric Inc. is one of many companies of electrical contractors and roof top solar experts fighting for their small business to remain profitable. This is not about money in our pockets, but food on the table for the many excellent electricians G&S Electric Inc. employs. The G&S Electric Inc. fight for access to solar electric options is about energy independence that should empower our customers. The fight to keep revenues and commerce growing in the United States is one G&S Electric Inc. has led by sourcing local Phoenix solar solutions, and domestic solar panel manufacturers. G&S Electric Inc. enjoys the business we are in, and we have no intention of shutting our doors any time soon. Please join us in supporting roof top solar. Please join us in supporting growth for Arizona.

 

Choose solar. Choose Energy Independence. Choose Prosperity for Arizona.

G&S Electric Inc., an Arizona Electrical Union (640) member of local electrical contractors and electrical engineers has completed all of the electrical support for six new cooling towers at Chase Field. Subcontracted out, G&S Electric Inc.’s highly trained electricians were called in to help with the disassembly of four older cooling towers which were no longer running at efficiencies worth keeping.

Our top rated valley electricians where called in to help with the installation of six new cooling towers. That’s two more towers devoted and working for the star players of the Arizona Diamondbacks, and the most important members of the team, the fans! This season, D-Backs fandomonium will keep cooler heads in a hot season of baseball action. Not only did G&S Electric Inc. get to work on the electrical conduit and infrastructure support, our trusted Phoenix electricians also installed top of the line, brand new VFD’s!

For those of you keeping track of player stats and RBI’s, VFD’s are the Variable Frequency Drives that help the cooling towers use energy smart technology. G&S Electric Inc. installed brand new, latest technology VFD’s on all six of the new cooling towers, plus the four pumps that help that cool air flow freely onto Chase Field and into the stadium seating at Chase Field. These ten new Variable Frequency Drives will run at optimal energy loads, thanks to G&S Electric Inc.’s team of players.

G&S Electric Inc.’s all-star electricians are helping you to enjoy those cold draft beers, roasted peanuts, and Chase Field hot-dogs with a cool breeze over you shoulder in the hot Arizona summers. Game days are upon us, and we are glad to have been asked to help. When the LA Dodgers come in to feel the sting of our bite, they have a cool locker room to cry in. When the heat of the game creates a D-backs win against the NY Yankees, you know those New Yorkers can’t blame our hot summers. We got the cooling towers to help them lose gracefully.

If the engineers at Chase Field are confident enough to call in G&S Electric Inc. to assist with the vital electrical needs of this important technology, do you think G&S Electric Inc. has the trustworthy electrical contractors for your major installs? This was a big game for us, and we are proud of all of our team for scoring big with the Arizona Diamondbacks. Enjoy your summer, and enjoy the games at the D-backs home field. We don’t expect for you to chant “G&S Electric Inc.” every time we score a home run, but we wouldn’t be mad at the attention either!! Keep cool in the summer, and contact G&S Electric Inc. for your major installation needs to keep your fans happy and comfortable.

Play BALL!!

Solar Siths -Selling the Future of America to Servitude

Arizona is just one of many states that is being sold in servitude to the oligopolies which control our nations wealth and progress. In November 2013, an organization which had began funding campaigns to negatively influence public opinion on roof top solar saw its first victory when the Arizona Corporation Commission fell victim to corruption and granted a $5/mo “solar tax” to APS roof top solar customers.

 

States across the nation are suddenly finding themselves passing initiatives into law designed by groups like the “American Legislative Exchange Council.” The new laws aim to deter free citizens from progressive energy independence by imposing unfair and unsubstantiated financial burden on adopters of solar solutions. The efforts of ill-backed non-profits and political action committees are paying off the owners of industry, and killing off the small business owner’s ability to succeed. The once booming economy of the solar industry, and the many business to business stabilizing revenues, are flailing to survive. The money will flow back to big-oil, the pipeline owners, and the grid puppeteers.

 

The most notable public entity is the financial power of the Koch brothers and their privately held company Koch Industries. A Bloomberg report lists the combined wealth of the Koch brothers to be over 100 billion United States dollars. Koch Industries makes its profit from oil refineries, pipelines, commodities trading, large scale industrial ranching, paper pulp industries, and the recently acquired electronic components manufacturer.

 

The wealth of the Koch brothers is spent to ensure their continued success by funneling money into organizations they control like the American Legislative Exchange Council -the entity responsible for writing the laws being passed, the Cato Institute -a libertarian political policy think tank that pushes agendas forward, 60 Plus -the non-profit advertising agency responsible for negative solar public opinion advertisement campaigns, and many other organizations quietly impacting our quality of life and consumer choice.

 

So those who own the oil refineries, the pipelines, the utility trading advisory board, the utility companies themselves, the legislative advising organizations, the advertising agencies, and the politician nominating, supporting, and funding organizations are the same people who are leading the fight against the solar economy.

 

The Arizona Corporation Commission has four out of five members who are members of the Koch brothers “American Legislative Exchange Council.” The Koch owned ALEC writes the policy, the Koch influenced EEI writes the investment strategy and sounded the warnings of utility insolvency, and the Koch affiliated regulating authority -the Arizona Corporation Commission, approved measures to tax Arizona citizens for adopting roof top solar.

 

There is a real, tangible, and plainly understood organized effort to diminish the much needed growing solar economy. The trail of influence is published by many media outlets linking the trends across our country that is deliberately designed to ensure a level of control of power and resources (energy and money) is maintained by a very wealthy few.  While there may be no conspiracy to prevent small businesses and citizens from achieving greater prosperity, the result from orchestrating an environment that deliberately suppresses energy independence and consumer choice degrades us. Economical growth in the form of small businesses will be diminished if oligopolies are permitted to maintain control of both energy and revenue. A “dark side of the force” exists, and we can see it plainly working and winning its scheme.

 

G&S Electric Inc. does not promote any particular politician, political party, or subscribe to any conspiracy theories. We are a small, woman owned business of electrical contractors who believe in the American idea of prosperity for all. We believe in the advancement of Arizona’s solar industry and the boom to our local economy. We believe in the right of the citizen to choose energy independence. We believe in roof top solar. We encourage our customers and solar supporters to be as knowledgeable as they can be about the facts and the influences on our government. Your choices as a consumer are being unfairly taxed. Please take the time to review the links below. Numerous media outlets provide valuable information. Choose solar, choose energy independence, choose prosperity.

What You Talking About, WBO’s?

In an article published this weekend on the Huffington Post, Web.com took a survey of over 600 members of the National Association Of Women Business Owners to find out what trends are important to their success.
Wait a minute? Did you know that G&S Electronic Inc. is a Women Owned Business? That’s right, a company of top valley electrical contractors and photovoltaic installers is owned by a woman! Roof top solar designers and on-site electricians, as well as electrical journeymen all have to answer to: a woman!

In 2005, business owner and manager Jaysen Fails purchased the family owned G&S Electric Inc., from his father. When he proposed to his wife, Jerrie, he made certain the commitment would last by making her 51% owner of G&S Electric Inc. Who knew one of the best electricians in Phoenix was such a romantic? We knew and we wanted to share our love story with you, our family of customers.

So what do Women Business Owners think according to the survey published? While we all still have skepticism about our current economy, most women business owners do believe an increase and real sales will be seen in coming months. Optimism was one of the largest area’s women business owners fared better than male business owners. That perspective may help them endure failures to achieve more successes. Go women!

Additionally, the survey reported that most women business owners felt that now is a good time to expand business. Now may be the time to start preparing for the economic bounce back of good times for which many small businesses have been waiting. The number one business trend that women business owners continue to look at is ways to make their business more mobile. With virtual offices, ready to go full service trucks, and remote management; G&S Electric Inc. seems to be onboard with mobile electrical contractors.

If you have a brick and mortar space expanding, chances are you will be in need of electrical work. Why not hire electrical contractors who are part of a Women Owned Business? Take the time to read our reviews that speak to the comfort of dealing with our team of electricians. Read how our customers speak to the friendliness and professional attitude our top valley electricians provide.

If you are a Woman Owned Business, use a Woman Owned Business to support the empowerment of women business owners. Many home owners who are single women may have reservations about dealing with electricians. Like getting a car repaired, there is a common fear that male dominated industries take advantage of perceived lack of experience/knowledge in women.

It may be safe to say that G&S Electric Inc. is the top rated electrical contractor business for single women. When our customers want answers, they know the electricians responsible answer to a woman owner.

May brings us Mother’s Day, and when looking to install roof top solar on that retirement home for mom, or that new electrical hook up for mom’s new electric car, call G&S Electric Inc. and send some women owned electrical contractors out to help. When mom needs a panel upgrade, or some rewiring for that new ceiling fan, tell her to relax; the electrician you are sending to her home has to answer to a woman and will have plenty of manners.
