It's only the 20th of January but 2017 has already been a great year for CDS Electrical. At the end of 2016 and into the start of 2017 we grew our team by another FIVE members of staff. This rapid growth was needed to match the growth we are receiving in the business as a whole and has now enabled us to grow even quicker.
Chas joined the team as an estimator and since joining only a month ago has already been winning some very big jobs. Pete, our very own warehouse operative also joined last month and since joining has completely revamped our warehouse and we are more efficient than ever before in ordering and allocating stock for jobs. We also have three new electrical engineers working for CDS Electrical who have been constantly busy on jobs since starting. Even further growth looks likely and we are excited to see what the future brings for CDS Electrical.

CDS Electrical will be celebrating it's 15th anniversary as a limnited company later on this year. To celebrate 15 years in business, we will be taking part in events throughout the year to bring together a combined total distance travelled of 1,500 miles. 100 miles to represent every year as a limited company. For the majority of these events we will be able to raise money for various charities, which will help towards our second goal; raising £1,500 charity. £100 to represent every year as a limited company.
As we progress throughout the year we will be updating you on our progress for both distance travelled and money raised. The two running totals can be found on our Charity page. Keep checking back often to see how we get on. 2017 is already shaping up to be a great year.
Our events for the year are still being finalised, but here's a taste of what you can expect the team at CDS Electrical to be getting up to throughout the year. Last year was our busiest year; both in terms of the amount of work we carried out but also in the number of events that we took part in. We're hoping 2017 will go one step further and be our busiest ever.
We will be regularly posting throughout the year with updates on events we are taking part in and how well we are doing in terms of reaching our goals. All of the 2017 event related blog posts will be tagged with the hashtag - #2017event. Our universal search bar which can be found at the top of any of our web pages will return all of the posts when you search for '#2017event'.

It's that most wonderful time of the year again. Christmas is just around the corner, with the New Year and new beginnings not that far behind. We would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year from all the team at CDS Electrical.
2016 has been a brilliant year for CDS Electrical and we are all looking forward to seeing what 2017 is going to bring. If you are interested in what we got up to as a company in the past 365 days, take a look at our Year in Review blog post. We managed to get a lot done, but we have a feeling 2017 is going to be even bigger. 2017 marks CDS Electrical's 15th year as a limited company and as a way to celebrate we are planning to raise £1,500 for charity by runing/ cycling/ swimming a total of 1,500 miles. We have a tracker on our Charity page that will update perodically throughout the year.
*CDS Electrical are closed for general works from Christmas Eve until Tuesday 3rd January. We will be back to normal from 8am on Tuesday 3rd January. In the event of an emergency and you need an electrician urgently over the Christmas period, we will still be carrying out these works. However, emergency call out rates will apply for this period.

On the 30th September we hosted a Macmillan Coffee Morning right here at our offices in Polegate and it was a huge success. People from across the business park popped in and sat down for a cuppa and a slice of cake (or two, or three, who's counting?) and everyone donated very generously.
In the couple of hours that we ran the coffee morning we managed to raise a total of £258. Today we received a certificate from Macmillan Cancer Support confirming the amount and we couldn't be happier to know we have raised so much money for such a worthwhile cause.
So as the certificate says below; Thank You.

Tesla's new Powerwall 2.0 is much the same as the Powerwall 1.0 but has ditched the curves and gone for a completely rectangular box.
The main upgrade is of course what is on the inside; twice the capacity of the original version. 14 kWh as opposed to the original 7 kWh. With double the capacity, it means that you will be able to keep your home whirring along with electricity for twice as long.

Tesla founder Elon Musk unveiled on Friday something that nobody was expecting; solar panels on the roofs of homes that actually make the roof look as good as or even better than the original.
Aftermarket solar panels such as those we have been installing for many years are a great addition to any home or business but one thing they do lack is the ability to blend in with the wide variety of architecture present on today's homes.
The panels unveiled are embedded directly into the tile of the roof making the panels blend seamlessly with the existing architecture. Four styles have been announced so far; all of which are made from glass but are styled to resemble particular styles.
The current version unveiled by Elon have a two percent loss in efficiency and therefore are only 98 percent as efficient compared to traditional after market panels. However, they are currently working on a newer model already that will potentially go beyond the efficiency of traditional panels and yield even more energy.
The solar roofs are scheduled to starting rolling out to homes by the summer of 2017.
The Nest Protect has recently been redesigned from the inside out. With it's latest unveiling it now had an industrial grade smoke sensor that tests itself automatically and lasts for up to a decade. Another great feature that we love about the Nest Protect is the lighting features that quickly let you know the current status.
Take a look at the infographic below for a rundown of what the different colours refer to. In short, green means everything is fine, yellow means everything is ok but best to keep an eye out, and then red means there is dangerous levels of smoke or carbon monoxide. The fourth status is white, which lights the room lightly if you need to get up in the middle of the night.
We are official Nest Pro installers and are able to install all of the available Nest products, including the Nest Protect. If you would like to know more about any of the Nest products or to arrange for CDS Electrical to come and fit any of the Nest products for you, please call us on 01323 734162 or send us an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
