Paid deposit for new service Aug 15,now it's September 19 ,they say I will be hooked up tomorrow the20th. I think they will do so. The problem has been the shortage of field engineers. The engineer I have dealing with is very nice guy, who told me he has 5 counties to cover. My question is why. Too many chief S not enough Indians? I would like to talk to one of the chiefs do they come have the guts to call me? I doubt it 870 557 2975 Ken Dove.

The guys are great. They came when they said they would. Also it was not like "oh we'll be sometimes between 9am & 5 PM". They said between 9 & 10. YThey were here before 10. Fast courteous. They even wore shoe covers when they came into my house. These are truly professional. If you need any of their service, call them. You will not be disappointed. Be a while since I've had this level of quality service. THEY ARE THE BEST!!!

Electric went out called it in and with in 30 minutes the guys were out here and located the power lines that went down. Took them about an hour to get it all hooked back up. They worked nonstop in rain and thunder. Want to say THANK YOU to the crew! Baby chicks are getting warm again ! ����
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.
