Electrician reviews in Kaneohe

    EYC Electric
    Despite being #2 on Matched Providers, this company has never bothered to contact me! Obviously, they are far too busy to bother to even call me, let alone to give out an estimate for what looks like several thousand of dollars of electrical work. As a Professional Engineer, I highly recommend AGAINST using this company.

    Knock-Out Electric L.L.C.
    Terrible service, scam, poor quality work. We ended up firing Keith Olive for lack of completion and poor workmanship. I would not recommend hiring him. We had to have quite a bit of porcelain tile ripped back up and replaced.

    Decker Electric LLC
    A crew of 2 men arrived in the time window specified. Completed all the work and cleaned up in less than one day. Friendly, neat, and quality professional work. They were flexible and able to complete the job in a key time frame for me. They were not the cheapest, but do you get what you pay for. I would recommend them and use them again with no hesitation.

    Mercury Solar
    Where do we begin? One word....HECO Back story - We bought our home back in '08. It already had a PV system installed (by Mercury) from 2004. There wasn't much of a PV boom yet, but we benefitted from the previous owners vision of a "greener" home. We didn't know anything about it, so we called Mercury hoping to get some insight. They were very helpful and came out to explain things to us. I was surprised considering we weren't even the original purchasers of the system. We never had a problem with the existing 12 panels (165 WATT) or the service that Mercury continued to provide However, fast forward 5 years, HECO started to nag us about Net Energy Metering. Apparently we were supposed to convert over to net energy metering as the "new" owners of the system. They couldn't explain to me why we couldn't be grandfathered in or how the world would come to an end if we didn't. For the next 2 years communication with HECO regarding the matter was sporadic at best, but they never failed to irritate us at least once a year. However, correspondence with HECO became more frequent in 2015 and I finally gave in and attempted to start the process for Net Energy Metering. It was then that I learned their rules change all the time. Our system would not meet the existing guidelines and left us in a pickle. In speaking to Reid at Mercury we had 3 options - shut the existing PV system down and rely solely on HECO; upgrade the system and hope we could qualify for the state and federal tax credits; or go with an all battery system. He spent many hours explaining these options to us. He never pushed, and he knew we either were or we weren't. After several days of contemplation, we decided to go with the off-grid battery system. We didn't need to speak to anyone else because the last 8 years proved that Mercury should be the only choice. It took only 3 days to remove the existing equipment and install the new equipment. Since then, our meter has not moved! The electrician (Russ) hung around to explain the system to us. I won't even try to explain half the things he said, but the one thing I do remember is, "Don't touch it." Once the system is going, you just sit back and relax. Should anything go wrong, there will be some obvious bells and whistles that will let you know to call Mercury for a check up. But we were assured we could call anytime we had a question or concern. We went from 12 panels to 27 (280 WATT), and we exist by the 16 batteries installed in the garage. The foot print (approximately 22 inches wide by 6 feet long) for the rack and batteries is manageable. We still fit our 2 cars in the garage with no problem. It remains to be seen how all the tax benefits will work out, but that will be a bridge to cross next year. Assuming all of Reid's calculations are correct, we should be paying for approximately 20% of the system out of pocket. In case you are wondering, this review is incentive based. In all honesty, if Mercury asked me to do this for free I would. We've had only the best experience with Mercury Solar. I can assure you that if we ever buy another home, I would gladly go with Mercury for all our solar needs.

    RevoluSun Smart Home
    We had been debating installing solar for quite a while but had procrastinated until one day late in 2012 when I went into our local bank branch and found a Revolusun representative set up at a desk marketing solar power. I sat down and chatted with him, asking some of the questions that had arisen during our investigation of solar power. He was very knowledgable and helpful and I went away ready to investigate further. I was a careful i.e pain in the "a" customer with new concerns and/or questions every several days but the rep was patient, answered all my questions even if he had to do some digging to do so. We knew Revolusun was not the cheapest by a long shot but felt that the quality of their products plus their guarantee to see the work through to the end including the permitting by HECO was worth the cost.
    This has proved out so far in terms of the professionalism and punctuality of their several crews who worked on our project, the results in terms of our solar production, and, of course, in our electric bills.
    When other people ask us for our recommendations for solar work, we advise them to investigate and compare several companies, but definitely include Revolusun

    East Oahu Electric
    They were expensive as hell, but he was able to help me that day. It was like a last-minute request because my appliances were delivered to my house and we needed to move some outlets. He charged me something like $300 to move all the outlets which was ridiculous. But I needed to get it done that day. He takes advantage of the fact that people needs his service and he charges phenomenal. He is not fair. In regards to work, he gets it done. But it was ridiculous expensive. It wasn't the owner, it was some other dude that came over to the house. Then the owner came back later to pick up the money and wanted me to give $100 to somebody else. So I decided I would never hire him because of that. He over-communicated.

    Ka'ala Electric LLC
    Ka'ala Electric arrived at our home and proceeded to check the electrical panel then scanned our whole house checking the outlets. She found that the outlets in our bathrooms did not have GFIs and recommended that we correct this. She checked the hood fan above our stove and advised that our electrician should have run a dedicated line. She checked the wiring of our pool pump and all was fine except that some wiring should be covered up (minor correction).  She advised us that the new code for smoke detector was that if one detector went off that all should go off. This lets the homeowner know that something must be changed or is wrong. There were some more minor items and she advised us that our home was electrically safe. This gave us peace of mind as we were not too happy with our original electrician. Adriana is supplying us with a full report and we are going to schedule any necessary work with Ka'ala Electric. My husband was impressed and is convinced that they will do an awesome job.  For all the work that she did it was worth every penny and more to get the peace of mind that she provided.

    DIAMOND HEAD ELECTRIC

      The scheduler asked several questions to ensure that the electrician had the materials he needed to complete the job.  He fixed the "loose" switch in record time.  He dismantled the ballasts and the light bulbs in the second bathroom and determined that he did not have the right ballasts.  He called the supplier and ordered the ballasts and light bulbs for my husband to pick up ($36.12).  He determined there was nothing wrong with the outside outlet and said that he would get back to us with an estimate for the front porch light.  He said that he would return to complete the job and that the scheduler would let us know when that would be.  Before he left, we paid him $143.44.  Eight days later he returned to finish the job, which he did in about 12 minutes.  Before he left, he said that we owed $102.62 for the work he performed that day.   It was our understanding that the $143.44 covered the jobs requested.  We called the office and were told that no, the original charge did not cover the completion of the job and that we did indeed owe an additional $102.62.  We feel that we were charged twice for the same job.  We will no longer use nor recommend Diamond Head Electric.

    East Oahu Electric
    I did not know that the meter housing or "socket" as they call it was my responsibility.  They said it could result in a fire and needed to be replaced immediately.  I was frantic.  Remembering something my brother had said about Angie's List, I joined to find a good electrician to get the work done quickly.  After carefully reading all the reviews offered by Angie's List for electricians on Oahu, I decided to go with East Oahu Electric.  I was worried about a couple of negative reviews but encouraged by the many positive reviews.  I gave East Oahu Electric a call and within minutes Paul Poirson showed up.  He looked over my meter box and said we should get an electrical work permit right now because the house power needed to be cut by HECO before proceeding with any type of work.  He said that HECO is reluctant to respond quickly unless the customer has a permit showing serious intent rather than just shopping for prices.  I gave him the money for the permit and waited.  A few days later, Paul came by to give me an estimate for the work ($2400) and said we had the permit but needed to wait for HECO.  A few days later, Paul called to say that HECO had given the go ahead and set a date that HECO would show up to cut the power.  A week later, HECO showed up with a huge truck followed by Paul Poirson with an assistant.  They discussed something and the power was cut.  Paul immediately went to work and was finished in about four hours.  HECO immediately came back to turn the power on and I was delighted to have this headache of a problem fixed.  It was very rainy and stormy that week but East Oahu Electric did a good job.  I was impressed.  I don't know how others feel, but I would definitely call East Oahu Electric again!  Thanks Paul...and thanks Angie!

    Adriana arrived and got to work. She took many pictures and discussed concerns with me as she proceeded. She also gave me an estimate for the repairs should I choose to hire her in the future to address the (non-emergent) issues discovered. Overall, good experience.
