Businesses across the United States and Canada are experiencing tough times just like NECA contractors are. However, times like these can be very prosperous when a contractor thinks outside of the box. Thermography and power quality analysis can open the door to opportunity for NECA contractors. This presentation will show how contractors can take advantage of opportunities in the electrical contracting market by using power quality analysis and thermography to troubleshoot electrical problems, conduct predictive/preventive maintenance services, and offer energy reduction programs.
