Is it time to upgrade or replace your electrical panel?

The average life span of a building today is around 30 years.  Frequently, when a building is updated and renovated, the electrical wiring remains the same.  This means that many businesses are operating with insufficient electrical support for their modern electrical appliances.  Increasing electronic consumer use and energy consumption can result in an outdated electrical system being easily overloaded.


Alloway Electric is the expert on saving you money on your electricity.  By taking advantage of the rebate programs in a given state, we are able to maximize the payback of your investment.


More and more businesses are switching to energy efficient electricity.  These businesses want to make smart decisions when it comes to equipping their company with appropriate energy saving devices.  By making the switch you not only increase your potential profitability, but you also help save the environment from toxic fossil fuel pollution and contribute to a more secure energy future for America.

It can be a challenge to determine the best steps to take in order to yield the greatest benefit in your business.  Let Alloway Electric help.  Call us today and find out how our experienced electricians can help you increase profitability and energy efficiency!


Our licensed Alloway electricians will respond quickly to handle your residential repairs, remodels, new construction, and maintenance contracts.  Our professional team is licensed, bonded, and insured.  We will respond same-day for an emergency and arrive on time for an appointment.

Our Alloway electricians do the job on the spot and clean up after themselves.  In the case of a complex project, we will meet construction deadlines and promptly pass inspection, saving you time and money.


Aerial and Underground Equipment

Alloway Electric is a qualified electrical contractor that can install structured wiring in buildings. Our qualified electricians can also install outside underground and aerial cable. The underground construction methods used vary with job specifications and site conditions.

Pneumatic piercing tools: Piercing tools, also called moles, have been in use for years, providing an economical method for making short compaction bores under sidewalks, driveways and other surfaces.

To make an installation, a tool is placed in a starting pit or trench, is connected to an air compressor, and literally pounds itself through the ground.

Trenchers: When surface damage is not an issue and there are no existing buried utilities at the job site, digging trench, placing duct or cable, and returning soil to the excavation is a fast, economical method of underground construction.  Trenchers dig continuous, narrow trenches, depositing spoil on either one or both sides for fast restoration.

Loader-backhoes: Although much slower than a trencher, tractor-mounted loader-backhoes are widely used to dig trenches.  Even though the width of the bucket is much larger than needed for a telecom installation, time and money are saved when a backhoe on-site is employed rather than bringing a trencher to the job.

Compact Excavators: In the past few years, compact excavators have done a growing amount of utility work.  Unlike a full-sized excavator, compact models can dig offset trench adjacent to streets, fences, buildings, and other obstacles.  With a variety of attachments, they also can do numerous other tasks.  Track-mounted compact excavators can work on a variety of terrain and in wet conditions where wheeled equipment is difficult to use.

Skid-steer loaders: Today’s skid-steer loader models are multipurpose tool carriers with an array of attachments.  Several of these attachments such as trenchers, backhoes, vibratory plows, pole-digger augers, and tampers are perfectly suited for utility projects.  Wheel-mounted skid-steers turn on a dime, can move quickly from place to place on the job site, and can perform many other jobs.  Track-mounted mini skid-steer loaders can work in confined spaces and in wet areas where wheeled equipment cannot operate.


Lighting Retrofits

Why hurry?

Right now Idaho Power is offering a rebate program that helps offset the costs of upgrading – sometimes up to 50%!

You also get these added benefits!

  • 25 – 50% energy savings means a smaller electrical bill – that’s real savings!
  • 20% increase in the life of your lighting means lower maintenance costs!
  • 95% lumen maintenance means better lighting over the lifetime of the lamp.
  • Increased CRI (color rendering).
  • T12 costs are expected to rise as inventory dwindles

Why is everyone upgrading their lights?

The Department of Energy has mandated a phasing out of existing T-12 fluorescent lights.  These are the fluorescent lights common in retail spaces and offices everywhere.  As of July 2012, manufacturers are prohibited from manufacturing T12 lamps.


Alloway Electric has nurtured our market expertise in exterior site and building lighting for nearly eight decades.  Beginning in the 1980’s with the City of Boise maintenance contract for over 10,000 street lights,  our clients have grown to include municipalities, subdivision homeowner associations, property maintenance companies, landlords, and the entire spectrum in between.

In addition to providing general repair of exterior lighting, including underground line location and repair, Alloway Electric has a compliment of trained designers who can evaluate your basic system, determine whether repair or replace make sense, and then design a lighting  solution that is compatible with your existing facility electrical system.  These span all the modern technologies including LED lighting, compact fluorescent, HID systems, lighting retrofit, lamp upgrades, etc.

Alloway Electric has a full compliment of large heavy equipment for lighting installations, including bucket trucks, line bed (boom truck), back hoe, mini excavator, trailers, dump trucks, mechanical pneumatic boring, etc. We specialize in subdivision lighting design and installation, and can turn a basic footprint diagram of your construction site into a workable system, approved by the municipality and economically designed to provide for the public safety and well being.
