Add extra power to your business
A commercial electrical sub panel is connected to your business main panel, and provides additional power, as well as the possibility to add supplementary circuits. It is not an easy process and it’s not always straightforward, as multiple factors need to be taken into account to ensure a safe and correct electrical sub panel installation. At Penna Electric, we always put our customers’ safety and satisfaction first, so contact us today.
It’s important to understand that an electrical sub panel will not add more electrical power coming into your office. However, it helps manage the electrical service more efficiently and easily distribute it to other areas of your business.
An electric sub panel installation can sometimes simplify the electrical service in an office by serving a separate panel for areas that are far from the main service, and also operational areas in need of heavy power, such as a workshop or an assembly line, etc. Contact us with your specific requirements or needs, and we’ll be happy to make the best recommendations.
If your business or commercial warehouse needs extra circuit capacity, then the best course of action is to install a commercial electrical sub panel. Penna Electric’s experienced commercial electricians have years of experience in assessing the power and electrical needs of businesses in Los Angeles and the South Bay area.
It is your particular business needs that dictate whether or not you need a commercial electrical sub panel installation. If there isn’t enough space for additional circuit breakers in your main panel, then a sub panel will definitely come in handy. It adds room for extra circuit breakers and can be located in convenient areas.
However, every business or commercial property is different, and sometimes a sub-panel is not the best way to ensure you operate safely and efficiently. In some cases, an electrical panel upgrade might be needed to provide your business with the power it needs, but also to comply with safety codes.

Frequently Asked Questions about Electrical Sub Panel Additions
Why do I need an electrical sub panel?
A commercial electrical sub panel gives your business an extension of electrical service from the main electric panel. If you need a large amount of energy away from the main building, then that’s a good reason to have a sub panel installed.
If you’re planning a new addition to your commercial property or office building, then you might also be in need of a sub panel installation, to serve that specific area. It can also be required for high-powered industrial or commercial equipment. Last, but not least, you might need a sub panel if you already have one that’s not functioning properly.
What size do I need for my commercial electrical sub panel?
The size of the sub panel depends on your business needs, as well as its application. Generally, residential uses require smaller sub panels, in the 30 to 60 amps range. However, commercial needs are usually higher, in the 60-100 amp range, as you might be dealing with higher-demand equipment such as compressors, welders, air conditioners, post lifts, spa equipment, etc. Our commercial electricians will be able to make the best recommendations based on your needs and the particularities of your business.
How much does a sub panel cost?
The cost of a commercial sub panel installation is less than a main electrical panel upgrade, as sub panels are smaller and have fewer wires. For commercial sub panels, the costs vary anywhere between $1150 up to $2500. The cost also depends on the size of the panel, the location where it’s being installed, and the degree of accessibility.
