Bay Power News
Bay Power Inc. is a family-owned company, founded by Donna Butcher and involving 3 generations of the Butcher family. For nearly 30 years, Bay Power has provided electrical products and solutions through: Bay Breakers, Circuit Breaker Service, Lonestar Breaker & Control and Breaker Connection.
Electrical issues in the oil and gas industry can crop up in a variety of ways. One major concern for many companies is that old technology combined with inefficient motors that have no speed control often results in a lot of wasted energy leading to high energy costs. Since these operations are usually at the end of the electrical line, they commonly experience issues with “dirty power”: voltage variations, frequency variations, and insufficient voltage. These drops or surges in power can result in sine wave distortions or power disruptions that drive up costs and reduce system capacity.
Do you have a strategy for dealing with electric motor failure? If not, you could be losing thousands of dollars in ineffective solutions, downtime, and employee hours. At some companies, the strategy is a simple breakpoint: anything below 50 or 75 HP gets replaced, and anything above that gets repaired. These smaller motors are often referred to as throwaway motors.
But is there really such a thing as a throwaway motor? Is it always more cost effective to replace a smaller motor rather than repairing it?
At Bay Power, we know the value of your time and money. And we know how important it is to conserve as much of both as you possibly can.
That’s why we’re excited to introduce our Combination Motor Starter Panel. It’s our revolutionary, surprisingly versatile starter that will replace a wide variety of motor control panels. With this one part, you can replace many different starters and save both time and money on your project.
Are you looking for ways to expand your product and service offerings and help your customers achieve higher productivity and lower costs for electric motor control? If you are an electrical contractor or maintenance professional, you are probably familiar with variable frequency drives (VFDs) - also known as variable speed drives, VSDs, or inverters.
For over twenty-five years, Bay Power has worked with electrical distributors to solve challenging problems and find the parts they need fast. During that time, we’ve built strong relationships with suppliers who work with us to find and deliver the right parts to our customers, even when you’re on a tight schedule. Partnering with Bay Power gives electrical distributors the advantage of working with industry experts to solve even the toughest challenges for customers.
They say water and electricity don’t mix, but at Bay Power we’ve developed electrical solutions for hundreds of water-based systems in the Bay area. We’ve worked with hospitals, wastewater facilities, dairy farms, irrigation companies, glass plants, and many other customers who use water on the job.
Our goal is to solve customer problems, not just to sell parts, and that means we can often reduce lead time, save money, and custom-fit the solution to your unique needs or environment. Whether you’re a contractor looking to build a solution for your customer or an end-user with a tricky situation in your plant, we’ll help you get the job done right.
When a manufacturer doesn’t offer the solution you need or the lead time is weeks longer than you can afford to wait, you need a supplier who has your back. At Bay Power, we help both local and out-of-state wholesalers and distributors find the right solution, and we get it in your hands as quickly and cost effectively as possible.
Speed and power are the twin pillars of success in the mining and aggregate industry. When your business model depends on output, you’re losing money for every second of downtime. If a motor goes out, waiting days or weeks for a replacement part is not an option. And with Bay Power, you don’t have to.
We provide motor contactors, breakers, VFD panels, soft start panels, and all the other electrical parts and panels you need to keep your crushers, conveyors, and pumps running. With our expertise and extensive inventory we can get you and your motors back up and runningin a fraction of the time it would take to order from the manufacturer and wait for the shipment to come in.
