Better Service. Better Results. Leading the way in electrical contracting.







Expedient and great to work with. They took control and did the work that needed to be done in a very fast time frame.

Chris was awesome! Chris and his assistant arrived on time, were professional and courteous, did a nice job and cleaned up afterwards. Chris then showed me the work and scheduled the inspector.

I was having problems with my fire alarms going off intermittently. They came out, checked the fire alarms, and made suggestions. They (Primary Electric) gave me a reasonable estimate to replace them, which they did the same day. Whole process was complete in less than two hours. Next time I need work I’ll certainly call in Primary Electric Inc.

Very professional, no nonsense, easy to work with.

Chris did a great job, everything went perfectly. Chris is professional and very personable. He actually came back and attached a line from the riser to the roof just to make sure it was really secure. Also, my neighbors needed some electrical work and they hired Chris and were very pleased with him and his work.

We’ve had Primary Electric perform our electrical work ever since we moved to Minnesota 3 years ago. Chris is always professional, on time, courteous, and their work is excellent. We have no complaints and total satisfaction for their completed work.

These guys totally rock. The electricity had been out in my garage since spring. Chris and his partner came out and analyzed which outlets weren’t working. They then gave me a reasonable work estimate, which I signed. Shortly after, they found a GFCI outlet hiding behind a box. The outlet had been tripped. They re-set it and all outlets worked. Chris didn’t charge me anything for the call… I would highly recommend Primary Electric.

I contacted two electricians for an estimate on my request. Both were near the same estimate, but I liked the idea Chris proposed to handle what I needed. He put in an extra small electrical box in my home to handle the new, dedicated lines going to my studio/shop area – something I wouldn’t have thought of at all… They were neat, and cleaned up all the debris that was left behind.

The lights in our living room ceiling no longer worked and we wanted to have them install dimmer switches for three sets of lights throughout the house.

Was very pleased with the work Chris and his colleague performed around the house. They talked through the problem until they found the solution and were very informative to us along the way. Both were extremely nice and made sure that we were satisfied with the needs we had, which we were. There’s no doubt I would utilize their services in the future!
