Power Distribution Planning for Architects


Electrical utility service, overcurrent protection, distribution, layout, clearances, and rate incentives options. When it comes to power distribution there’s a lot to consider. Systems that are efficient and optimized are no longer the exception; they’re the expectation. Forward-looking electrical systems not only provide us a way to meet these expectations, but represent a fundamental shift in how we maximize our electrical devices with the spaces we occupy. It’s about more than just a smart meter or remote breaker control — it’s about flexibility. This presentation will cover electrical service terminology, highlight the value and benefits of electrical distribution systems, and equip attendees with strategies to integrate into the design process.


  1. Discuss utility electrical service, main electrical service, electrical distribution, and layout, using industry terminology.
  2. Analyze the current status of electrical system function and how they interrelate.
  3. Explain the importance of infrastructure involved with creating an efficient and cost effective electrical system distribution.
  4. Determine how to integrate the goals for power consumption incentive rate structures conversation into a building programming discussion with the client.
