These guys are great. Had power fail at one of our outbuildings; they offered to come fix it on Xmas eve but I said after Christmas was fine. They came out on time, got it fixed, all good. Highly recommended!
Excellent service & very competitive pricing. Would definitely use Dollens again & recommend them to others.
Excellent service with courteous and knowledgeable men
They have helped us a couple of times now. Will continue to use them going forward.
I apologize for leaving a 1 star review earlier. I wanted to leave a review for another electrician service with similar name.
Response from the owner: I apologize for your poor experience. But I believe you maybe confusing us with another company. We have not provided an estimate or service to Ben Yu.
The guys who came out listened to what I wanted to get done and got right on it. I’m very pleased with their work. More business to come!
Very pleasant and professional, but very expensive for 20 minutes of work.

Very easy to work with. Good suggestions were offered. Work is always first-rate.
Josh & Elijah did excellent work in replacing our electric panel. They were polite, professional & answered any questions I had. The work area was cleaned after they left. They even cleaned out my rain gutter & spout - above & beyond service!!

Response from the owner: Thank You Trajan Market. Working with you guys was great. We look forward to the next project.
Dollen's Electric are our one-stop shop for anything electrical! Great family business! Give them yours!
Response from the owner: Stacie, Thank You. We appreciate your support and great review. You're awesome.
We recently bought a vehicle and I contacted Jason and he came right away. The next day his son Josh, cousin Elijah, and their friend came by to install our 240 volt outlet with precision and quality. I would go to them again.
Response from the owner: Thank you. We are so glad you are happy with our work. We really appreciate the review.
Highly efficient service. Provided the best solution to charge our new Tesla avoiding purchase of a costly charger. Installed a 50amp line and outlet. Highly recommended.
Response from the owner: Thanks Joel! You guys enjoy that new car!
We had a great experience with Dollens Electric—they helped us replace old wiring, install new outlets, and install bathroom fans in our home (including adding the vents through the roof). They were very personable and easy to talk to, and it was easy to see that they put a lot of care into their work. We're looking forward to working with them again soon!
The work was completed as contracted. They were very professional nice.
They are simply the best. Polite, on time, communicative, and always ready to help with even mundane concerns. I’ll never use another electrician. Jason and his team are the gold standard.
Response from the owner: Thank you so much James. It is always a pleasure.
Dollens Electric has helped me on several occasions. I highly recommend them.
Response from the owner: It was good to see you again! You are very nice and easy to work for. I hope you get to see those grandkids soon!
Installed a whole house fan that is quiet and effective. Greatly reduces A/C cost. Workers are fast and efficient and cleaned up 100%. Quality products.
This is the second time we've used Dollens, first being when they upgraded the wiring to the entire house. This time they installed an isolated circuit in our garage and some can lighting. Even though it was a smaller job, they treated it just as importantly as the bigger job.They answered all our questions, let us know and talk through our options and didn't do any additional work without letting us know and approve the price difference for our requests, rather than telling us at the end of the job.A+ work!
Response from the owner: Thanks Mathew. You and your wife were great to work for. I still want to steal your dog!
We had a ceiling fixture out. Jason came on out and diagnosed the problem and got it repaired very promptly. Courteous and friendly.
Response from the owner: Thanks Lynne! It was a pleasure to met you!
Response from the owner: Deepak! Thanks for the review. I got to say you held your cool. It is mid December and we had to replace a major costly piece of your electrical system right before Christmas! Because you were so level headed you made it a pleasure to work for you. Thanks and Happy Hollidays!
Response from the owner: It was a pleasure working for you, Thanks for the review! Josh and Elijah mentioned how smart and energetic your son is almost every time they came back to the shop!
Professional, on time service. High quality work. Definitely will use again.
Response from the owner: Thank you Khanh, I am glad we have such great customers to work with.
Excellent. Whenever I again need electrical assistance Dollens is the one I'll call.
Response from the owner: Thank you Lynn.
Response from the owner: Thank you Denise. It is always a pleasure to work with you.
Update 9/2020 - Upgraded some thermostat wiring for me with a difficult routing. Professional and quick.Update - Jason and Josh again came through for me. In the midst of a heat wave, they were able to come to the other end of the county and fix an electrical problem at my mother's house. Got the outlets for the portable AC and lift chair back working and made the wiring safer to boot.Original - Could not ask for better. Jason installed a new 40 amp circuit and an EVo charger for our car. (No more slow 110 charging. Yeah!) While working in our breaker panel he noted a dangerous situation left by a previous contractor who upgraded our air conditioning.(Side note kind of disappointing the inspector didn't notice that the other contractor put in a bigger breaker on a wire that was too small. Luckily the wire insulation had just started to bubble and it didn't catch fire.)Within a week they were able to fit us in to replace the faulty circuit as well as rewire our garage lighting to eliminate some creative but scary runs of extension cords and re-purposed outlets. Now I have bright lights and when I look up, I don't see wires draped everywhere.We connected with Jason of Dollens Electric through our equally excellent general contractor Dan Mackey. (Who by the way had nothing to do with the faulty circuit or the creative garage lighting.)Lastly a thank you to Jason's son Josh who got to do the crawling under the house.
Response from the owner: We could not ask for better customers. We are looking forward to their next project!!!Thanks Maggie and Jim!!!
Response from the owner: Thank you Dana, we appreciate you and your feed back.
I've had a few projects done by Dollens..would highly recommend them...very trustworthy & professional
Response from the owner: Thanks Cyndie! Call us anytime, you're a great customer! I hope you and your Neighbor Dave's Work we completed last you two a long time! Good Job with the lights BTW.
Jason always does a great job, thanks
Response from the owner: Thank you Lindsay. It’s always great to see you.
I had Dollens come out to bid on installing a standby generator and they were friendly, on time, and professional. They walked me through options, explained what they were looking out and why and asked lots of follow up questions to make sure i was getting a bid for everything i wanted and needed.
These guys are the best. Very knowledgeable when troubleshooting old problems from less capable electricians who were here for prior owners. Installed a new outlet in my hardwood floor that looks beautiful along with solving our "where to put the lamp" problem. Lastly wired up a cat6 network allowing us to move our router/hub into a closet off my desk.Call/use them; you won't be sorry.
On time, explains the work so you will understand what was done and why.
Jason, Josh, and Elijah were prompt, considerate, professional, trustworthy, and kind. The work for our recessed lighting project was done quickly and with care, precision, and high quality. Jason was very thorough in explaining what they had done and why. I would have no reservations with them and highly recommend them!
Response from the owner: Thank you Steve. We appreciate the feed back. It was a pleasure.
Very knowledgeable team, friendly and with a great sense of humor. Thank you so much for a job very well done!
This company is great. They were always on time and great at communicating both time estimates and costs. They are very thorough, knew current codes inside...

Items they look for:

  • Incorrectly wired electrical panels
  • Arc fault protection (AFCI’s)
  • Make sure the areas in your house with water nearby, like the kitchen, bathroom, garage, or outdoors. These areas have a special type of protection in case of electrical problems called “Ground Fault circuit protection.” This protection should also be in any electrical outlet that is within 6 feet of water. This protection should also be in any electrical outlet that is within 6 feet of water.
  • Non grounded receptacles including two prong receptacles
  • Wiring installed in an unsafe an un workman like manner. This is most commonly noticed in a garage, shed, or the attic and crawlspace
  • Aluminum Wiring
  • Old Cloth Romex
  • The correct wire size on circuit breakers. The circuit breaker is meant to protect the wire based on ampacity. Incorrectly matched wire cause an immediate fire risk.

Take the time to plan your electrical system carefully.
