Our founder, Douglas Arevalo, has been in the electrical industry for decades. In this time, he has enjoyed learning through a hands-on approach and provides this in-depth training to every electrician that works with us. We focus on three different areas of electrical: residential, and light commercial. While these areas are all fascinating in their own ways, we gravitate toward residential work because we enjoy the one-on-one interactions with our customers. We love to take our customers’ ideas and make them reality! Your satisfaction is our biggest reward and being able to achieve what you want.

Over the years, electrical work has become a huge part of Douglas’s life. He started to research the industry in his free time and would watch informational videos, intrigued at how much the electrical industry has grown and changed. This constant study of industry advances is an important part of our company culture.
The history of the company started when Douglas was working for a large company that always wanted him to work out of town. With a child on the way, it was hard to find time to spend with family. He wanted to lay down roots and to be home with family but work always kept him away. Douglas almost reconsidered his career when a good friend of his told him to start his business – an exciting but scary prospect!
Douglas didn’t back down from the challenge and hit the books, took a few classes to pass his contractors exam, and, soon after he moved into his new home in Rancho Cordova, and hasn't looked back. He now has three kids, the oldest of whom plays football for the Rancho Cordova Junior Lancers. Douglas had the great opportunity of being an assistant coach and will applying for head coach next year.
Outside of work, Douglas’s life is his family. They enjoy spending time together exploring the new city, watching the 49ers, and always make an excuse to barbeque. His wife does all the administration work for Douglas Electric while Douglas is in the field helping clients. She alone has helped the business grow exponentially. We recently hired Douglas’s brother in law as well! We truly are a family owned and operated business.
We want our company to be approachable and for every customer to feel comfortable reaching out. We are your friendly neighbors, and no task is to small. Call us today at (916) 619-6305 to learn more.
