10sep1:00 pm2:00 pmYou Don't Need More Power! How to Electrify Your Home Without Panel Upgrades & Rewiring

Event Details

All-electric developments and retrofits often face constraints on electric power supply, and for every constraint there is a technical solution. Old homes, apartments and trailer homes may have power supplies as low as 7200 Watts (30 Amps at 240V), but upgrading interior wiring and utility services can be cost- and time-prohibitive. After designing more than 100 all-electric developments and retrofits, from tiny homes for the homeless to historic hotels and high rises, Sean Armstrong feels like he’s faced every possible challenge to electrifying a building and has found a solution. Come join us for a technical deep dive in avoiding power upgrades with:

– “retrofit ready” HVAC, Hot Water, Laundry Drying and Cooking appliances
– power balancing plugs, subpanels, circuit breaker panels
– managing recreational plug loads to create capacity for necessary loads
– a by-the-books understanding of the electrical code’s requirements for dedicated circuits
