Electrical Service Upgrade – New Underground Conduit
As electric cars become more prevalent and as homeowners in the greater San Jose area undertake major remodeling, the need to upgrade the electrical service from PG&E becomes a necessary but beneficial project. Most homes in our area run on 100-amp service. An upgrade to a 200-amp system will ensure existing and future power needs are met, especially if you are charging an electric vehicle.
Upgrading your electrical service is not just a panel upgrade. PG&E will usually require an increase in the wire capacity to your home. This is where Freedom Underground, an A-General Engineering and Plumbing licensed contractor comes in. We have the license, expertise, and tools to get a new electrical conduit installed. We will not do your panel upgrade, please hire a dedicated electrician for that work, but we specialize in underground work which electricians often do not.
Whenever possible, we use trenchless methods for conduit installation to minimize cost and disruption to the landscape.
If you need to upgrade or add an electrical service and need new underground conduit installed, please call us at (408) 693-6018 or contact us for a free estimate. Please note that you must already have filed for the upgrade with PG&E and have a PG&E assigned project manager. We need to view the PG&E approved plan to be able to provide an estimate for the underground installation.
Gas Line Extensions to the Backyard or Cooktop
If you want to add natural gas to a cooktop or to the backyard, Freedom Underground can add and connect the necessary piping and fittings from your gas source through your crawl space or outside, underground. We run gas to your cooktop and also to backyard BBQs, pool/spa heaters and space heaters. Please call us at (408) 693-6018 or contact us for a free estimate.
San Jose Area Gas Line Installation/Repair – Underground
If you are making changes to your gas source from PG&E, or installing a new line for an ADU or new construction, you need to contact PG&E first to get a PG&E approved plan. Freedom Underground can install the underground pipe to deliver gas but only after PG&E has approved the plan.`
