Recent Review: Very happy that we chose Eric from Capital District Electric through Angie's list. After calling 3 other electricians in our local area that either did not return calls, or show up, Eric responded within hours, and we had an appointment scheduled within a week. Work was done as promised on time and within budget! Once I decide on some new fixtures, we will be calling Capital District Electric again. Thank you!

Recent Review: The service was great and prompt and courteous, the project wasn’t able to be completed (through structural issues, nothing to do with the company) but they were great to work with. Will hire again once I’m able to complete the structural work that needs to be done first.

Recent Review: Made my day! I had Dan Amadeo. So good to know that there are still service people that are truly here to serve! He not only showed me precisely what was wrong but gave me two options on how to repair, one which would have saved more than 20% on the job. (As the absolute dollar amount was not too different I went with the higher priced option). He was sincere, upbeat, and comprehensive in both his evaluation and the job he did, pointing out other areas for improvement for the future. Additionally the customer service line at Mel Electric was also so helpful when I called and they got someone out to me as soon as possible. I'll never use anyone else. Should I ever need an electrician again I'm going with Mel... no contest!

Reviews in Fonda to Install Electric Car Charging Station

AMr. Electric of the Capital District
This project started with an electric car charging station - a GE Voltec.  It took a little work to find out, but Mr. Electric was able to provide me with a good set of references detailing their experience with electric car charging stations.  After a little negotiation their pricing was competitive. When they inspected the house they raised concerns about my junction box - a Federal Pacific (Stab-lok).  This took a great deal of work to sort out.  I had to check with numerous sources to confirm their concerns about this box.  Eventually my home inspector (Spec-Pro, Ian Robertson) was able to give me all the info I need.  Details  about FP Stab-lok are available on numerous web sites (which I view with a degree of skepticism). Bottom line is that Federal Pacific Box circuit breakers don't always pop with heavy loads.  This leads to an electric fire.  Spec-pro is well versed on the statistics of this issue, and I understand that Ian has given presentations to insurance professionals. Obviously, If you don't overload circuits this problem is mitigated.  However if you put in an electric car charging station (which draws a lot of amps) this can be a very serious potential problem.  Quite literally you are playing with fire!   All the work is now done.  It had to take place over two days.  When I was without power, Mr. Electric provided a charging station to keep the refrigerator working.  Also, we love the lights.  Regarding the Electric Car Charging Station - GE Voltec - it's basically great.  It makes a big difference for an electric car (ours is a Chevy volt) compared to the slow 110 volt level.  Now we go months without putting gas into the car, and the difference in electric bill appears to be relatively minor.  Great report on MPGE and MPG cost is available at http://www.csmonitor.com/Innovation/2011/1225/Electric-cars-101-What-does-MPGe-mean-exactly. Currently our average is over 130 mpg.  It would be much higher but we deliberately run in gas mode to make sure the gas is fresh and the engine is working properly.  And, it is much easier to charge an electric car then refuel a gas powered car.
