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.

What Our Happy Customers Are Saying


Ian and Chesapeake Electric did an amazing job in updating our home’s electrical system. Ian identified several fire hazards that we didn’t even realize was there (especially in our daughters’ bedroom)! My husband and I have peace of mind that our home’s electrical system is now safe for our family. Thank you!

Friendly, professional, and quick while maintaining quality work. My tech, Paul, also had no issues answering all my pestering questions and explaining everything to me. What more could you ask for? Would highly recommend to others.

Just found my new go to for electric work. Thanks Zach for the thorough service you provided. Give this guy a raise. He's the only one coming back to get work done at my home. I told you I'd leave a good word only if you did a great job. Well here is. Thanks again

I wish all companies were this professional. From the moment I called until the work was finished I couldn't have been happier. Ethan Payne was the gentleman that completed the work at my house. He was very professional, respectful of my property, and showed me everything he was doing to do before starting and once the work was completed. He made sure I was 100% satisfied. If I need any more electrical work in the future I wouldn't hesitate to call and will definitely be asking for Ethan!
