As a low-cost alternative to generators, National Construction Rentals’ power technicians are experienced in the installation of overhead and underground temporary power for a variety of uses.

The most cost-effective temporary power configuration is an overhead power source. National Construction Rentals’ experts use specialized augers to securely place standard 24’ or the larger 30’ black diamond poles below ground for a secure and stable result. For projects requiring full underground placement, trenching along with conduit and wire-pulling will get your project online and within budget in no time.

National Construction Rentals also offers an assortment of power options including single and three phase systems, high voltage needs, telephone wiring, stringer and sub poles, and stand-up electrical cabinets
