G&H Lighting Maintenance
These guys are absolute hack jobs. Do not call or use them under any circumstances. Just arrived at a job they did which they charge a customer $1700 to install a new panel that the customer purchased. This should of cost around 500 tops. They also hooked up a live 220 wire on a 30amp breaker to a wire that was exposed outside of a wall! Very unprofessional and have no clue what they are doing!

Called for a problem with our kitchen wiring and to install some lighting. Within half an hour two trucks arrived with three electricians. They worked fast and efficiently. One of the guys would actually run out to the truck for a part and then actively jog back in with it. The first three jobs went so fast I got them to drop a line in for the new dishwasher and three more in the garage for a garage door opener and carpentry workstation. I never felt like they wasted any time, and they teamed up and did separate jobs as needed. It wasn't dirt cheap but it was professional and polite, I strongly recommend them for general electrical work.

Georgia Power
Georgia Power is taking advantage of the supply and demand. They are tacking on extra money on people's utility bill because you have to make payment arrangements which makes your account late. The first time they added $150 to my already $150 bill so I paid my actual bill for a $150 but because they added that extra $150 that made my light bill still behind so now my other bill had to make payment arrangements again so they sent me a letter saying they've added an extra $40 mind you I still have the $150 plus my next bill $150 plus the $40. Got to make payment arrangements again. Out of all my years dealing with Georgia Power this has never happened. Now a single mom going through a rough time at this time trying to raise her kids in a decent neighborhood and maintain a good life for my kids. Georgia Power wants to beat you out of your money because they can. It's a demand for it and they are our only supplier ( SUPPLY and DEMAND ).Thanks Georgia Power.

Coker Electric Company
Joe Coker & Company were very honest, dependable, and professional. I called for an estimate and did no thave to wait for days for a return call. By the end of the day he was at our property giving us a fair estimate. He completed the project in a very timely manner, even assisting us with purchases we needed. His crew worked diligently and cleaned the area perfectly. I would HIGHY recommend this company for ANY electrical need you may have..Gerhild deBrabant

Coker Electric Company
My husband and I recently purchased an older home in Phenix City, Al. I took a chance contacting Coker Electric as I had no knowledge of their work. I did, however, read the reviews and decided to call them. Not only was Joe prompt and friendly, he quoted prices that were very affordable and he did the work quickly and profenciently. I will always use this company in the future and I highly recommend them to everyone.

Strickland Electric Co
Always reliable. Professional service. Amiable folks who listen to their customers. Exterior or interior. Great for my older home with its old wiring. I would recommend them to take care of your electrical issues.
Tips & Advices
Keep the following tips in mind:
  • Do not operate any electrical equipment while sitting or standing in water.
  • Don't overload extension cords or surge protectors.
  • Put caps on your electrical outlets if you have small children.
  • Call an electrician if you notice your sockets or switches are warm to the touch, discolored or if they make noise.
  • Keep electrical cords away from stoves, ovens and other sources of heat.
  • Do not use an appliance that has a frayed cord.
  • Do not staple extension cords into place or cover them with carpets or furniture.
  • When using extension cords, make sure to unwrap them before plugging them in.
  • Don't overuse extension cords. Have an electrician install extra outlets if you need a power source closer to you.
  • Only use light bulbs with the correct wattage for your lamps and light fixtures.
  • Contact a licensed electrician if you frequently blow fuses, since this can be a sign of an electrical wiring problem.
  • Have an electrician look at your fuse box to ensure you have the right size fuses and circuit breakers. The wrong size fuse or breaker can be a fire hazard.
  • If you have fault circuit interrupters installed in your electrical panel, make sure you test them at least once a month by turning them on and off.
It can cost from $40-$100 an hour depending on the job. This does not include additional costs for parts or trip fees. Make sure to ask in advance what they charge for or if they will provide a free quote.
In order to become a full-fledged professional, a person must undergo an apprenticeship with master and journeyman electricians. An apprentice needs 8,000 hours of practical work before graduating to the journeyman level. If an apprentice reaches journeyman status, he or she can complete most electrical work, but cannot design it until completing more testing along with 2,000 more on-the-job hours.
Yes. While all electricians need a license, not all of them do the same types of jobs.
  • Outside: These types of electricians work outdoors on electrical lines that connect to power plants.
  • Inside: Inside experts typically focus on commercial and industrial buildings that require a lot of power.
  • Residential: Residential electricians work with low-voltage systems and wiring to install fuse boxes and light fixtures.
Watch out for contractors that greatly underbid other electricians. If the price seems too good to be true, it probably is. Also, always remember to get the estimate in writing before settling on a company.
