An accessory dwelling unit is a secondary, smaller space on a property with a primary residential unit. ADUs can be in the interior of the primary residence above the garage, in a converted garage, in the basement, or in an attic. An ADU can also be attached or detached from the main unit.
ADUs require zoning and building permits depending on your local jurisdiction. An ADU is different from a shed which is non-habitable, usually under 200 square feet, and might not need a permit. To be considered an ADU, it must be smaller than the primary unit and provide living, sleeping, cooking, and bathroom spaces. Including an ADU on your property can increase its value and better the neighborhood with more affordable housing options.

Powering your ADU can seem like a daunting task. Trust The Faith Electric Group, Inc. for quality electrical installation to power your new addition.
There are a few options when powering your ADU, including:
- Connecting to your primary residence: This is the most common way to power your secondary dwelling, especially for an interior ADU. If you plan to rent out your primary unit, it may be difficult to split the electrical bill. An ADU can use 60-200 amps depending on the electronics in the space. Call The Faith Electric Group, Inc. professionals to confirm your primary unit has enough power and install an electrical subpanel for your new addition. The subpanel has similar circuits and breakers as your primary unit, so you can control the ADU without affecting your main residence.
- A new supply: If your primary unit does not have enough power for your ADU, you can run separate power, or if you’re renting out the space long-term, it’ll separate the power bill. Our team can install a second meter for the new space. A new electrical supply can have a high upfront cost, but it can help you in the long run if you’re planning to rent long-term.
- Solar energy: As of 2020, California requires solar panels on your ADU. This eco-friendly option can decrease your monthly electrical bill. Solar panels and batteries can have a higher upfront cost but are quickly offset with a lower utility bill.
- A generator: Installing a portable or standby generator can power your ADU with gas or propane. Though this can have a smaller upfront cost, it is not a sustainable solution. Generators for your ADU are best if you don’t use the space frequently or only in emergencies.
