PITTSURGH, PA —Duquesne Light Co., based here, has entered into the hvac and electrical contracting business, an idea suggested by Brite House of Electricians.

Brite House suggested that the utility put together a formal program to perform electrical services for all the utility’s customers. It took 18 months to put the program together.

Brite House also acquired a 50% interest in its occasional partner on projects, Boehmer Heating and Cooling, a Bryant and Trane dealer, and member of ACCA. Duquesne Light’s hvac program, for homeowners and small businesses, will be offered through the Duquesne Home Services name.
