Do you do your own racking and panel installation? Or do you sub that out?

Brother, if you got the right money, I guarantee I could get it sourced, installed, and inspected... Christmas Night at dinner time... for the right money

Sub it. I don't want the liability of 100's of roof penetrations.

It would have to be a blank check, because I'm already swamped.

Yeah it's been crazy since September and after the hurricane forget about it! I've been doing nothing but repeat customers and and their referrals. New customers have been asked if they can wait and of course 90% of the time the answers been NO. Moving along...

Hmmm....sounds familiar. Just found out that the rope manufacturing plant we have as a customer lost a 600 volt switchboard today. All their winders are down and their orders for the new year are going to be way behind because of it. Sounds like the regularly scheduled maintenance shut down will be a bit more complicated this year.
Looks like we'll need more than the 3 guys that we usually send in for the maintenance work.

I can't wait to go check it out tomorrow and see what happened to the switchboard.

One change order in the am, adjust motion sensor, office party at noon, get christmas gifts for kids. Pack it in for the day. Saturday if weather good maybe some generator service. Greatful for a good year business wise, but tired and burned out. Happy to have next month filled out too.

Nothing exciting like that today, just the glowing back stabbed receptacle. Easy money, keep on backstabbing.

"Lost a switchboard." I mean, it either burned down, which makes that description hilarious. Or it's completely missing and there's only a bunch of stub-ups and an unusually clean spot left on the concrete, which is also hilarious.

Didn't think of it that way. I'll let you know tomorrow when I go look at it.........if its still there.

Unfortunately I only know what their maintenance guy told me.....which was " I heard a loud bang......smelled a burnt smell ....so I shut it all down".

You still have four days to get the jobs done after Christmas.



People, who aren't bankers, don't work New Year's day?
