Grounding and Resistance Testing

Grounding is an important service providing companies with testing and a resistance reading in Ohms to determine areas prone to surges and endangering the system with avoidable damage

to infrastructure.

Once an area has been found to have higher resistance in the grounding network Provincial Pole Specialists will install 10 foot copper clad steel rod up to 100 feet underground testing after each rod for resistance until acceptable readings are achieved. As the resistance is reduced on sites among the grid, the entire grid resistance is lowered improving a much larger area through preventative maintenance.
