Recently, the electrical rough-in began at the Build the USA home. Approved Electric (Orlando, FL) was chosen as the electrical contractor for the project. We’ve spoken with Approved numerous times over the past few months and over that time, we have seen first hand just how much research they have put into researching the products. On multiple occasions, I have stopped by the project site and had Russ from Approved Electric show me the American-made products being used that day. Fantastic.
The electrical portion of the home has more distinct products than any other area, and they have taken great care to ensure that nearly every item was made in the USA. Yes, I said nearly. But we’ll cover that later.
