The Hazards Of Improper Wiring

When it comes to pier safety, Chesapeake Electric never takes chances. Our experienced technicians know just how dangerous conditions can be if the electrical system has not been properly maintained or does not meet code requirements. If these issues apply to your pier, you may be left with broken conduits, exposed wiring, and severe electrical hazards.

Getting in touch with a professional who understands the intricacies of working with electricity in wet environments is vital. They can make the difference between a simple fix and a very costly project.

We also find that most piers are underpowered and have no room for expansion. This makes it challenging to add additional shore power, jet ski lifts, or even general pier lighting.

At Chesapeake Electric, we use calculations based on distance and motor loads in order to make sure that your wiring is sized appropriately to prevent underpowering, intermittent power issues, and safety concerns. With over 10 years of experience in pier power installations, we know that piers have a tendency to damage conduits with their natural back-and-forth movements, so we use expansion fittings to allow your electrical installation to move with your pier.


Customize Your Pier Needs

As your pier power partners, will be by your side every step, from site surveys and design meetings to installation of dock light kits and boat machinations. We can tailor your jet ski lift or pier power to suit your needs, depending on the following:

  • Image
    The number of boats/jet skis using the pier
  • Image
    The size/shape of the dock area
  • Image
    The weight-bearing capacity of the pier
  • Image
    Whether you prefer low profile lights, energy efficient LED lights, solar lights, etc.

Needed a next day "simple" outdoor fixture wired. Turned out to be not SO simple as load bearing beam blocked the preferred path. Zach adjusted on fly and job completed in time to mesh with other contractors working on project. Reasonable pricing for all needed materials and labor cost$ on 1Day turnaround. Fast scheduling response, great app and tech on backend.
