East Bay Residence

Does Your Home Need an Electrician?

Most of the homes in Berkeley, Albany, Oakland, Piedmont and Alameda are nearly 100 years old. Think about that — built with small closets, small kitchens and enough electrical service for a modern day playhouse. So now you have extension cords connected to power strips.
Some of these houses still run on knob and tube wiring. Few of these houses have enough service to handle the appliances and electronics we now use. Many of these houses are overdue for safety inspections and service upgrades. We can help you make it better!

Our Services

Replacing worn and aging systems, Berkeley Electric upgrades electrical panels and wiring for all kinds of electrical systems and appliances, including washers, dryers, microwaves and heaters,as well as lighting for security, landscapes and home interiors.

To comply with the current fire and safety standards, insurance companies now require that homeowners replace their fuse boxes with circuit breaker panels. Even the old Federal Pacific Electric (FPE) Panel/Breaker Hazard Summary breaker panels installed in homes built in the 1950s, 60s and 70s are documented to be a fire hazard.

The upgrades shown are conversions from overhead PG&E poles to underground systems in three-unit, two-unit, single-family and one-unit residences.

Berkeley Electric works with homeowners and contractors on their remodels and renovation projects. Whether we are using plans, following personal instructions or designing and building, we will give you the service and quality you expect for a competitive price. Your satisfaction is our goal.
