All of the electrical maintenance solutions are offered to domestic, industrial and commercial clients with a myriad of concerns. Able to offer new installations, alterations, certificates of compliance, fault-finding and testing services, general maintenance, home automation and lighting solutions, there is nothing this firm won’t strive to help with. Generators are separated into two key categories; standby and prime. Standby generators are designed to supply backup energy during periods of outage or blackout, whereas prime generators work as a full-time alternative to grid power. The mobile heating and cooling services can work for any size venue, be it a marquee, hall, basement or any other indoor our outdoor venue. Solar systems can be provided with or without battery backups. Without one, during the day the systems run off solar energy alone and then operates on grid energy during the night, saving on electrical running costs. In battery-inclusive solar systems, the main power is generated by solar with a generator at its back, ensuring uninterrupted power sharing between solar and generator. Hybrid systems monitor the entire electrical systems, including battery life, and will automatically switch the generators on and off as required, minimising the time the generators remain on. Technology is always advancing, and the service packages provided by GPA to various clients are equipment-intensive. Ensuring that they continue to offer the most reliable, and convenient equipment in their repertoire, the firm constantly update their equipment to be in the best condition. Broadening their electrical, heating and cooling offerings to include specialised renewable energy projects, GPA have continued to gain insights into improving each subsequent development in attempting to meet a growing demand for renewable and low-carbon energy solutions.
