Docks & Shore Power

We have the training and experience to do the job right with the highest quality of materials and precision wiring. It doesn’t matter if you need repair, maintenance, lighting installations, or boat dock lift installations; we can deliver superior services. 

Dock Wiring

When your boat dock needs power, the job must be done correctly. Anytime you mix water and electricity, you can have a dangerous problem on your hands. This is why it is best to leave any wiring job to the certified electricians at East-West Electric.

Whether it’s running new electrical to a dock, upgrading the existing electrical system, or repairing existing wiring, no job is too big or small for us. We understand dock wiring has to make accommodations for constant water and weather exposure while still providing the electrical needs of marine equipment.

Our expert electricians understand that docks are what keep your marina alive, so we make sure that your electrical wiring is up to the standards of electrical code. We use high-quality straps, fasteners, wiring, and over 30 years of expertise, to implement efficient, long-lasting electrical systems. We offer everything from designs to complete installations.

We understand the importance of a stable and safe electrical system within the docs. We include the following in your wiring projects:

•  Weatherproof metering devices

•  Weatherized cabling

•  GFCI receptacles with multiple uses

•  Waterproof cords, junction boxes, and outlets

Electrical Dock Installations

Some of our most popular services for marinas involve electrical upgrades and installations in docks. Whether you’re looking to have some repairs done or fully upgrade the dock pedestals, our team has the skills and experience needed.

Shore Power Pedestals

Shower power pedestals provide power to vessels and yachts stationed at the dock. Shore power pedestals, or marina electrical pedestals, provide power so that the yacht owners not only can charge the boat’s battery but also the electronic equipment in their yacht, such as entertainment systems, AC, etc., without running a generator. 

Our team of experts can handle every single aspect of a shore power upgrade, from design, permitting, sourcing materials and products, installation, and maintenance; if you already have a shore power system, we can provide you with repairs and maintenance services, even if we weren’t the ones who did the original installation.

Dedicated Circuits

Having more than one yacht use, the same power system at the same time can overload the system and wear down electrical components prematurely by overheating. From an efficiency and safety point of view, segmenting the marina to run off various dedicated circuits minimizes failure risks as well as electrical damage to yachts.

Dock Lighting

Every marina needs enough lighting to light up the dock and its yachts. No matter the time of the day, ample lighting is necessary for the security and safety of your guests, as well as to ensure your yacht has essential visibility when coming and going.

LED lighting retrofits are paramount to the marina’s security, and they will improve the marina’s efficiency overall and cut down your monthly electric costs. We specialize in industrial lighting solutions, LED lighting installations, and just about anything needed, from pathway lighting to pedestal lighting and market lighting, to keep your dock lit up.

Fault Finding

Marinas have a complex electrical system with many parts that work together to create power for the vessels in them. As these electrical systems get exposed to the elements, the wires can be corroded, connections can get loose, and insulation can degrade –  these can cause electrical issues in the marina. Our marina electricians can assess your systems carefully and identify and solve problems that are starting to develop. We use the latest technology and tools to fully test your systems for any faults. We also use the best electrical tools and equipment and tools to measure the system’s amperage, resistance, voltage, etc.
