This transformer was installed during last week’s cold snap

We love to shine the spotlight on the incredible work of our PowerForward DuPage contractors and we recently learned of one that has been quietly helping Little Friends, one of DuPage County’s many non-profit organizations, and that is Cattaneo Electric.

“Cattaneo Electric has been a very good supporter to Little Friends over the years, helping with many projects. Over the past 18 months, Peter, Mark, Jim, and team have been our “go-to” electricians,” said Tom Pendziszewski, Vice President, Facilities and Support Services.

“They have installed all the electric in our fitness center that we now have available to our children, adults, and staff; put in an additional power line in for our student cafeteria, so our adolescents with special needs could learn how to use a microwave; added four surge suppressors at our Downers Grove facility; and installed an electric line the entire length of one of our houses with two hours’ notice, enabling us to pass inspection with the fire marshal the following day.”

“And just last week, on short notice and on one of the coldest days of the year,” Pendziszewski continued, “Peter installed a transformer so our Warrenville facilities could have power on the parkway for Christmas decorations. It is exactly what we wanted and needed for the holiday season. He and his crew will also be replacing some of our lights in our parking lot in the coming days. They are THE BEST.”

Thank you to Cattaneo Electric, for your altruistic concern for the welfare of others, and for giving back to the community in such a big way!
