Power is critical to making an area livable, whether you’re moving out to the country to set up shop or you’re building a home in an empty lot. In most cases, your goal is to have a permanent, stable power source to deliver electricity to your property.
To help you get connected, consider the following methods of power installation when you’re out on vacant land.
Decide on permanent or temporary power
Before you decide to invest in the property or land you’re considering, check to see what kind of utility would be available to you. For instance, power lines may run along the road in front of your property. If this is the case, a power company may be able to install a pole or two to give your property power.
However, when your property is further away from the road and power lines wouldn’t be able to reach it you need to consider whether permanent or temporary power is the best option.
Temporary power comes in the form of a portable generator. Portable generators are a good solution if you’re not looking to connect to the grid for the long term. But if you plan to build a house in the area, you may want permanent utilities.
Horizontal directional drilling for utility installation
Permanent power is necessary whether you’ve decided to build your own house or you’ve hired subcontractors to do the work. Contractors may bring their own generators to work on the house. But it can help to install your utilities ahead of time before construction on your house begins.
Horizontal directional drilling is a great way to install your electrical utilities and plumbing. This is because HDD is a cost-effective and efficient boring method that doesn’t have a major impact on the surrounding area or the environment. You can install your utilities without having to worry about destroying your yard or the project taking weeks on end to finish.
