Terrible company to deal with. Recently had fire ants get into their transformer box because of a lack of maintenance on their part. This caused a surge of electricity to my house and caused thousands of dollars in damage. They left me to foot the entire bill of repairs.

Impossible people to work with. Always rude and demanding.half the employees give you the wrong information. Basically they care nothing about their customers. Never takes less than 24 hrs to fix electricity. Unfortunately in bryan co you can't have anything else. Company bought out rights to everything. So good luck to you. Eventually this company will get what's coming to them.

Every time it rains (notice I didn't say storm,but simply rain) we aren't the least bit surprised if we lose our electric service. In fact we've come to expect it. It's usually a matter of how long it'll be off, or how many times it'll flicker off and on. Or both. SE Electric needs to put some of the proceeds they get from our payments towards taking care of equipment. Good Lord knows we pay enough for it. Less than a week ago we were without electricity over 24 hours. Customer service was very rude when we called to ask when we could expect to have our electric restored. If we had a choice we'd have changed to another company long ago.
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.
