Prestige Power Systems
Electricians in Portland
"Prestige Power Systems installed my Solar and they are the BEST company I have ever chosen to do work on my home. From start to finish they made the process easy. I feel my system is producing more power than promised. No hard sell at all. Tamara is only interested in working within the budget you have. I made changes in the size system I wanted during the process and she took care of it. There were several inspections by county and energy officials. Each inspector I talked to was impressed with the install. Sean is meticulous with the job he does. 6 months later PPS installed my daughters system. You will not be sorry to have this family run business do your project!!"

Classic Electric
Electricians in Portland
"I needed some electrical work done in our house and Thomas was fast, thorough and really cares about his craft. He worked smartly, offering suggestions on how to add some additional lighting fixtures I wanted in a tricky spot in my kitchen. He is a busy guy, because he is so good, but he will always get back in touch with you when you call! We will be using him again in the near future."

Square 1 Electric
Electricians in Portland
"Square 1 was great to work with. They not only were very competitive with price, but they actually went out of their way to add a payment option (in this case paypal and square) to allow us to use our American Express which is our preferred way to pay for business expenses. We were dealing with an old abandoned building on the property we lease but needed power to our food cart. In this case, we didnt want to power up the whole building in fear of having bad electrical in the abandoned building so Square 1 was able to come up with a way to get us power to the cart without having to deal with costly upgrades to the building itself! The installation happened within days of agreeing and they actually finished several days ahead of schedule! We will definitely use them for all our electrical needs both for our business and for our personal needs."

M&W ELECTRIC INCORPORATED
Electricians in Portland
"I hired M & W electric to install a fan in my bedroom. Unfortunately we have a very large bed under the fan. Their electrician did not hesitate to stand on a small stool, on my bed to install the fan. Very impressive. Although it was an awkward install, he was patient and did a fabulous job. I was impressed."

Positive Energy Electrical Contractors LLC
Electricians in Portland
"If you're looking for integrity in a business this is the company. I've hired this company for several projects. They have provided LED lighting, panel replacement, rewiring of my entire building, replacing parking lot lights, and energy efficiency. Each time they've provided clear communications, professional assessments, and excellent work quality at reasonable prices. The work is top notch. They consistently meet their estimated times and budgets. Their billing is accurate. I will continue to use them in the future and recommend to friends and colleagues. One very happy customer."

Security First Alarm
Electricians in Portland
"I needed a fairly large system and after calling around they had the fairest prices around. Not only did they take care of my needs. I even had the install the very next day. The technician was on time and very professional. He made sure I knew how to work my system before he left."

EPIC WIRE Oregon Electrical Contractor
Electricians in Portland
"we hired Epic Electric on a recommendation, for a small electrical job in our house. Ever since then Steve, the owner, has been the person we call for any electrical issues. He completely wired our barn in ways that I never even thought of which made it much more user friendly. We did a major remodel and he replaced our old panel which was outdated and kept tripping. The new one works great. In our kitchen he installed lighting under the cabinets which I just love. Makes such a difference. I wanted a new plug for a freezer in our basement that I didn't have to worry someone would unplug the freezer when I was gone--not a big job but he got it done quickly and didn't put it off--I think that was January 2015 or maybe February. I like the fact that he doesn't mind small jobs but is very capable to handle any big jobs and that he offers alternatives that make sense. I admit I am over fussy about what subs do in my house--he is always respectful, keeps things clean and neat. During some of the times he had a key to our house. We were traveling quite a bit and never had to worry about what he was doing. On a personal level--my husband finds him hilarious. Would and have recommended him without hesitation."

With today’s technological needs and advances, many electricians in Portland also are trained to install fiber optic and coaxial cables for electronic equipment.
