Green Technologies


The Green Technology movement is directly linked to, not only renewable energy sources, but also to using our current electrical technology more efficiently and effectively. Danco Electrical Contractors of Raleigh is an active proponent of better electrical design and leveraging the new products that enter the electrical contracting marketplace. We have experience with solar energy installations and conducting energy audits to determine optimal energy utilization and energy ‘leaks’. We also have wide access to the evolving technology and products.

Energy Audits

Danco offers comprehensive assessments of energy utilization and energy leak points.

Danco routinely conducts energy audits to monitor energy utilization and metering accuracy for Commercial and Industrial customers. Our energy audits are also used to determine utility allocations, assess peak usage, and appropriate zoning and hours of operation.

Examples of our energy audits include:

  • Lighting
  • Equipment and motor efficiency
  • Load capacity and compatibility with operating parameters
  • Shut down sequencing and hours of operation
  • Motor controls
  • Lighting efficiency and control systems
  • Excessive lighting (foot candles)
