Yelp Review


We just had our 18kW Generac Generator installed by Charles Electric, and we couldn't be more pleased with the professionalism and quality of work performed.  They also installed the same generator for my next door neighbors, and they are just as pleased as we are.  I highly recommend Charles Electric and will call on them for all of our electrical needs

Dan is a top notch professional who invests in the quality of his work and the satisfaction of his clients. He helped us with generator maintenance and came back multiple days to do a really thorough job. He is fair in pricing and takes the time to educate clients on important topics like generator maintenance. We were very happy with his work and highly recommend Charles Electric.

These guys are awesome! We had a big list of items including swapping out bathroom, dining room and kitchen lights and many switches replaced. Dan and his team met us and finished the work in no time. He even came out on a Saturday to repair a couple other items we found. Friendly guys and great service! AAA+++
