I highly recommend Dollen Electric. I called two other electricians and left a message to call back. They never did. However, Dolan Electric immediately...
Prompt, and they explained everything in detail
Response from the owner: Thank you for your kind words! We take pride in our prompt service and strive to ensure that our customers fully understand the work being done. We appreciate your feedback and hope you will reach out with any future electrical needs.
Thank You , Jason & Joshua for your professional electrical service for replacing my outdated challenger electrical panel ! Just wanna let everyone know ,...
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!
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.
Amazing experience with Jason! Prompt, quick, and knowledgeable. He helped me resolve an electrical issue within minutes! If I ever need help in the future, he’ll be the first person I call!
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.
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!
Excellent. Whenever I again need electrical assistance Dollens is the one I'll call.
Response from the owner: Thank you Lynn.
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!!!
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.
Response from the owner: Thank you Steve. We appreciate the feed back. It was a pleasure.

The first step of the stand by generator installation process is determining a suitable location for the unit. The location must be stable and not prone to flooding. Additionally, there must be ample room for multiple technicians to work on the unit if needed.

Homeowners living in a neighborhood with a homeowner’s association must check the policies, as they are crucial. Ideally, you should install the generator near the natural gas or propane line. This will allow for easy installation and cost savings.

First, we will determine the location for the generator. Then, you will choose between using pea gravel or a concrete slab as the base for the unit.

We will use the chosen option to provide a stable surface on which the generator can sit. We will connect everything – the fuel line, generator transfer switch installation, and generator – to the main house electrical. Finally, we will ensure the wiring is correct and that self-tests are performed weekly.
