    "Anthony and his team were great! Anthony was very quick in his response and coming out to give a reasonable quote. We hired him and he was able to set up the appointment to install an EV charger that same week. Would hire again and recommend to anyone needing work done."

    "I needed two EV chargers installed in a 40 year old garage. By using the original conduit I saved a lot of money. The installation was neat, and the crew was professional, on time and did nice work. Then there is one more thing he did, installing each charger on its own circuit with its own breaker. Was this necessary? Maybe but not from a technical or safety standpoint. This was done for my convenience. Bravo. I hope Slava comes back to do more work for me."

    "Sugar Pine Electric was awesome! On a scale of 1-5, I would give Jon a 10 if I could! We purchased an older but renovated condo in December and I was excited to replace the existing switches, dimmers and outlets with Lutron RadioRA2 equivalents. By installing a few "keypads" I was hoping to work around seemingly unfixable goofiness in the wiring and get things to work "better". For instance, there were 3, multi-switch/dimmer runs that did NOT behave like normal 3-way circuits. One only worked when one of the two switches was in the OFF position, in another the two switches had to be in a specific position to work, etc. None of the gangs had neutrals connected, or presented at the existing HW for connection, there were 3+ brands of hardware that were used, etc. None of the wires were marked, and many didn't comply with standard wire colors. Whatever spool of wire was laying around seemed to be what was used during the remodel. When working with a replacement dimmer, I inadvertently created a short at the electrical panel that rendered the many runs off this particular circuit inoperable, despite not tripping the breaker. I was pretty concerned that I had Fubared something and that it might take forever to find an electrician willing and available to help. I sent out my plea on a Sunday and received a call from Jon within the hour. We used Mon/Tue to work on the punch-list of things to repair / install, and by Wed AM he was on-site. It was 2-solid days of non-stop work address everything on the list. When he left on Thursday, he had successfully sorted out all of the 3-ways which now work properly, troubleshot and fixed the short condition I inadvertently created in the electrical panel, and had installed new conduit, an overhead light, and outlets in the garage! As disappointed as I was that my actions resulted in part to the mess I needed Jon's help to fix, in the end, it was an absolute blessing. There was wiring debris in the electrical panel that contributed to the original short, another piece of random wire what was not properly connected, and numerous connections that were loose and needed to be tightened. And, rather than trying to work around strange non-3-way circuits, they all now work, which I honestly didn't think was a possible outcome. The conduit project in the garage was also beautifully done. Overall I have nothing but exceptional things to say about Jon, his professionalism and the work that he performed. I have a couple of additional projects I'm excited to get his help with. Jon is fantastic!"

    "Jake was very professional, his quote was incredibly competitive, he was punctual, worked efficiently and the final product was very high quality. I had initially planned on just running a line to the garage, but after drafting the contract he brought up the idea of installing a subpanel instead at no extra cost which I ended up opting for. I’d gladly recommend him to anyone searching for an electrician."

How much do electricians typically cost?

  • Auburn, California Average
    $315
  • Typical Range
    $149 - $487
  • Low End - High End
    $70 - $949

Frequently asked questions

  • An electrician’s cost per hour comes in between $50 and $100. It’ll vary depending on your location and the type or professional you hire. Areas with a higher cost of living can expect to pay on the higher end of that scale. Licensing level may also increase the price.
  • Usually you’ll pay a higher rate for the first hour. This covers their travel and time expense. Emergency or after-hours rates are usually higher too – expect to pay an emergency fee of up to $300 plus a higher hourly rate.

Electricians do a fair amount of larger remodeling and new construction projects but also common residential projects including:

For cost information related to the above tasks, visit our Electrical Cost Guide.

  1. Do you have a license to perform electrical work in this state?
    All states require an electrical license or work performed under a Master Electrician. You should also ask how many on the job hours of experience they have.
  2. Do you have insurance?
    Never use one who isn’t insured. You can ask to see proof of insurance.
  3. Do you have prior work references?
    You might skip this for small jobs like installing a light or outlet. For larger projects, always get references.
  4. What are your rates?
    Always ask up front. Getting a detailed quote up front is the best way to go.
  5. Who is going to do the actual work?
    Often, a Master Electrician will come out to diagnose and bid on projects, but they have their apprentice and journeyman electricians do the work. This isn’t a terrible thing, in fact it’s common practice. The Master’s license is on the line with any work he supervises.
  6. Is your work warrantied or guaranteed?
    Any reputable company or contractor warranties their work, usually for at least a year.
  7. Are you usually on time?
    Overbooking is a frequent problem with electrical work. Often, a service call goes long, and they end up showing up at your home late. This common complaint is easily remedied with an up-front and honest discussion. If they can’t be on time, make sure they’ll call.

1. Don’t Be Misled by an Electrician’s Hourly Rates

A truly skilled, well-equipped professional with a truck full of parts that charges $100 an hour can be a much wiser choice than an inexperienced hack, working with inadequate tools and no parts, but charging much less. Often, more experienced professionals get the job done quickly with warrantied work.

2. Compare Travel Charges

Rates reflect travel times. Travel charges can have a big impact on your costs and are in some ways easier to compare than hourly rates. Many electricians spend a third or more of their time navigating traffic on their way to a jobsite. Every contractor must find a way to pay for the expense of driving each day.

3. Bundle Repair Jobs Together

When you feel it’s time to call a pro, review your list and then conduct a mini-inspection of your home. Look for faulty switches and dysfunctional or crowded outlets. When the electrician comes, you’ll save money and time by getting everything taken care of at once.

4. How to Prepare & What to Know Before the Electrician Arrives
  • Be as thorough and detailed in describing your needs to your contractor. The more they know, the quicker the job will go.
  • Before they arrive, prepare a precise list of items you want serviced. Electricians have budgeted their time for a service call. They don’t have time for additional requests once they are on site.
  • Make sure the electrical panel box is accessible. You’ll pay for the time it takes to access it.
  • Clear away fragile items, knickknacks and furniture from areas where you expect the them to work.
  • If you have questions about the project, ask them before they start. Most are happy to run you through the problem and the process of fixing it.
  • Ask about potential issues after the work is complete. During a service call a professional will spot any potential hazards.
  • You’ll lose power to parts of your home while they work. Be prepared to pause anything you’re doing during the service call.
  • In most cases you’ll have the option to either pay at the time of service or have a bill sent to you. You’ll be able to pay with cash, credit and sometimes check.
5. Install Money-Saving Electrical Fixtures
  • By switching from ordinary incandescent light fixtures or bulbs to fluorescent or LED ones, you can substantially reduce energy consumption in your home.
  • Motion detector switches can help you save money on outdoor lighting while at the same time providing very cost-effective security to your home.
  • Creative landscape lighting and indoor accent lighting can make your home more appealing to you, your guests and potential buyers in the future.
