Northern California's Premiere Electrical Contractor

Union Trained &
Full Service


R&D Electric provides full service commercial and industrial electrical work for commercial facilities, government agencies, and contractors. Building on over 30 years of electrical experience, our managing partners oversee all construction activities with quality and customer service as critical factors in our high integrity approach to electrical work. We believe that without good service, we would not have customers. We leverage our trades expertise to perform with high quality and efficiency, always putting our customer's interests first, to develop long term dependable relationships.

Our business model is to do what we do best and make sure we are delivering each project how we would build it for ourselves. We want our managing partners to be directly involved in field activities and to build our business in partnership with our clients.


The core of our business is our commercial work. We work with facility owners and managers on tenant improvements, upgrades, new builds, and maintenance and service.

Our network of contractors and sub-contractors routinely hire us for the electrical portion of their installations, and use us as referrals for ancillary work.

As a union contractor, we regularly work on government facilities, public works, prevailing wage work, and we have the training to execute complex electrical operations with extensive experience.

As experts of electrical, we also provide Third Party Installations (TPI) for solar contractors and developers.
