Cost-Effective Way to Add Electrical Outlets in a Shop

Updated: May 20

When this Dunwoody client contacted us, she needed more electrical outlets in her shop where she could plug in her wood working equipment. She had a tight budget, and didn’t know if she could afford all of the outlets she wanted immediately. She asked if I could give her an estimate.

I looked over the situation. Then, I suggested that instead of installing 6 or electrical outlets around the outside walls of her shop (which she was originally thinking she would need), we could more cost effectively install two pull down power cord reels. We could mount the two reels to the rafters of the open ceiling in her shop.

With the two pull down power cord reels installed, she can operate her wood working equipment by plugging in two pieces of equipment she’s using at the same time. I also suggested an upgrade to her electrical panel. She needed the upgrade to handle her future electrical needs. As a result, we installed a dedicated sub panel to her wood working shop electrical panel.
