Tips for Hiring an Electrician or Contractor

Whether you're installing a solar system, air-source heat pump, home electric vehicle charging station, or upgrading your electrical panel, you'll need a qualified professional to complete the work. RMLD is frequently asked whether it can recommend electricians and/or contractors for electrical/installation work. Unfortunately, RMLD is not able to recommend contractors or electricians

Here are some resources and best practices that may help in the decision-making process.

Best Practices:

  • Obtain at least three competitive quotes.
  • Check references.
  • Verify that the person or company you wish to work with is properly licensed by checking the appropriate registry:
  • Make sure the person or company you wish to work with is bonded and insured. 
  • Do not allow work to proceed without the appropriate written agreement or contract.
