We have the equipment and training to work at facilities in Charlotte that utilize a high-voltage power supply to operate as efficiently as possible.
There is one main reason why power is transmitted from the source to the end user using high-voltage. The goal is to reduce power being lost due to resistance along the way. The percentage of power lost in a low-wattage situation would be as much as 50%, but with high-voltage that loss can be cut to roughly 2%, making a more efficient use of power.
Transformers and other step-downs are used to reduce the high-voltage down to the voltage the end user requires. In an industrial setting, there are situations that call for conversion back to a higher voltage, which is handled by a high-voltage power supply. The important thing to note is that the possibility for bodily harm is higher with high-voltage, so any electrical work to be done involving high-voltage should always be accomplished by a seasoned and experienced electrician.
