Wednesday, April 30th, 2014

RP Companies is Arizona’s number one choice for all your electrical needs. As a complete turnkey electrical contractor, we have the support and team to address your electrical goals and vision. Our electrical division consists of experts in electrical construction with a specific knowledge of electrical systems as they relate to residential and commercial projects. Our electricians have a working knowledge of standard wiring practices, the National Electrical Code (NEC) and a basic knowledge of the equipment used in commercial applications, industrial processes and environmental controls.

Electrical CompanyRP Companies takes pride in being a progressive electrical contracting company specializing in design/build, commercial and industrial projects. We are very proud of our outstanding experience and expertise in all aspects of electrical construction and in our ability to complete a project on time and within budget, better serving our Arizona customers.

RP Companies electrical division consists of 3 different types of contractors:

  1. ”Outside” or “line” electrical contractors. These contractors are responsible for high-voltage power transmission and distribution lines. They build and maintain the infrastructure required to transport electricity generated at a power plant through a series of high-voltage lines and substations before it is used to power facilities, buildings and homes.
  2. “Inside” electrical contractors. These contractors provide electricity to any structure within a property’s boundary lines, including outdoor lighting or substations. Under current construction specification guidelines, “inside” electrical contractors can serve as prime contractors for all electrical and cabling design, installation, and maintenance for commercial, institutional, and residential buildings. Projects also include Database Centers/Infrastructure and Pharmaceutical Work.
  3. “Integrated building systems” (IBS) or “Voice/Data/Video” (VDV) electrical contractors. These contractors work primarily with low-voltage installations such as back-up power, climate controls, wireless networks, energy-efficient lighting, telecommunications, fiber optics and security systems. IBS contractors are particularly skilled at integrating these system controls to work together for maximum energy efficiency and building performance.

Electrical Panel InstallationAbove all, RP Companies electrical division ensures that safety is strictly enforced at all our locations and construction sites. We are required to follow the National Electrical Code (NEC) to ensure every system works in a safe manner. This code is designed for the installation of electrical components and systems and is used to safeguard persons and property from hazards arising from the use of electricity.

Google Fiber will soon be coming to Arizona

Tuesday, April 15th, 2014

Google Fiber is Google’s “fiber-to-the premises” service, providing broadband Internet and television to a growing number of locations. Google Fiber will provide an Internet connection speed of one gigabit per second for both download and upload speeds which is roughly 100 times faster access than what most Americans have. In order to utilize the gigabit speeds, subscribers would require support for a 1000BaseT and category 5 or greater cabling or a 802.11ac compatible WiFi router and wireless adapter.

In February 2014, Google announced the areas they have invited to work with them to explore what it would take to implement Google Fiber. The nine metropolitan areas are: Atlanta, Charlotte, Nashville, Phoenix, Portland, Raleigh-Durham, Salt Lake City, San Antonio and San Jose, as well as thirty-four other cities within these metro areas.

 

Each city listed above will need to ensure Google that they will be able to access each cities existing infrastructure. Google plans to use existing utility poles and conduits rather than put in new poles that would make the project more expensive. Their goal is to be as unintrusive on already heavy traffic areas, making for a smooth transition with very minimal disruption to its citizens.

Governor Jan Brewer said Google’s announcement that Phoenix was selected as a city to receive Google Fiber is a “further validation of our ongoing work to make Arizona the best state in the country for high tech companies to do business.” Google Fiber can only enhance the economy in Arizona hence new jobs and attracting new high tech businesses to Arizona.
