Net Electric Installs 1800 Monitors At Chase Center In 60 Days, Wins Project Excellence Award

Net Electric, an Oakland electrical contracting company, is the winner of the “monitor marathon” that unfolded recently while the Chase Center was under construction.  From top to bottom, Net Electric installed and programmed 1800 monitors in 60 days, finishing up the $1.6 million job right on time and winning a 2020 Project Excellence award from NorCal NECA (Northern California chapter, National Electrical Contractors Association) for its work.

The Northern California Chapter, NECA Membership Services Committee established a Project Excellence Awards program that takes place annually. The program was developed to recognize excellence in electrical/technology installations from contractor members.

Nate Tyler, CEO of Net Electric, said his firm placed monitors throughout many areas of the arena, including in the parking garage, weight room, trainers’ rooms, practice gym, executive offices, luxury suites, hallways, breezeways, coaches’ offices, conference rooms, offices for ticket sales, administrative offices, bathrooms, box office, front of the building, lounges, bars, behind the bars, and in the medical offices and security offices.

Net Electric worked as a subcontractor to Parsons Corporation, AV Manager for the arena build out. Nate Tyler, owner/manager of Net Electric, acted as Senior Project Manager.  Net Electric Project Manager was Desiree Gutiérrez. The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 595and IBEW Local 6 provided technicians to assist with the installation. All monitors were from Samsung.  “We installed all sizes of monitors, from 30inches up to 43 inches, 55 inches, 65 inches,75 inches, and 85 inches.” Each monitor required programming of the date, time, and audio and video inputs.

Tyler said the company not only installed the monitors, but also made mounting adjustments. “We installed mounts if necessary, repaired mounts if needed and replaced mounts if needed,” he said. “We also installed digital media players (DMPS) that work with the network system. We installed scalers to make sure the monitors fitted thet proportions.

SMUD Energy Careers Pathways Collaboration

The Sacramento Municipal Utility District (SMUD) is partnering with local leaders to beautify Sacramento public spaces and bring solar energy, shade and clean energy jobs to underserved communities.

In January 2020 SMUD, the Sacramento Kings, Baker Energy in collaboration with Net Electric, UC Davis, the Sacramento Black Chamber, the Sacramento Promise Zone and SHRA, the Greater Sacramento Urban League and Spotlight Solar partnered on a workforce development project that will increase the use of solar and renewable energy in Sacramento’s underserved communities while providing neighborhood beautification, technical and career readiness training and job opportunities.

The SMUD Energy Careers Pathways program educates adults ages 18 and up in the hands-on technical skills needed to work in the solar energy field. Students receive classroom education, hands-on training in the installation of solar arrays and, upon graduation, opportunities to interview with industry employers.

The program includes preliminary training on rooftop solar installations and installing “solar tree” arrays at multiple sites within Sacramento, beginning with the Greater Sacramento Urban League and the Simmons Community Center.

Net Electric served in the Community Outreach project by developing training modules, interviewing program participants for placement, providing instruction, and mentoring participants through the program.
