    All the electrical outlets in my kitchen were not working. The porch light was out as well. David systematically diagnosed the problem with his equipment and our answers to his focused questions. I was impressed by how quickly he identified the problems and completed the repairs. I recommend him to anyone seeking a highly competent and honest licensed electrician.

    I live in Discovery Bay Ca. and P.G.&E. had subcontractors out in our neighborhood running new lines to our boxes. They shorted our whole box and it shut off ALL power to our house saying they couldn't fix it until the next day sometime if then. We called everyone because it was late at night we couldn't find anyone. Thank God for Discount electric they came ALL the way out here and fixed our box at 12:00 am and charged us LESS than it would of cost for a electrical company to come out during business hours. I highly Recommend Discount Electric for ALL Electric. GREAT SERVICE for ALL AREAS !!!

    I had fire in my home, and the power was shutoff by the fire dept while they extinguished the fire. in order to restore power to the rest of the home, I was told that I needed to have the affected circuits isolated so that power could be restored to the rest of the house without
    he risk of having power flowing through damaged wiring. The electrician came to my home,
    determined what needed to be done, took the time to explain what he was doing and
    Charged me a very reasonable fee. what impresse me the most was that this was a situation
    where a dishonest electrician could have easily over-charged or 'padded' the job since this situation was new to me. Honesty means so much especially when faced with unfamiliar circumstances.

    I messed up the installation of a USB outlet so I called Discount Electric and David N. (with 30 years of experience) showed up. Not only did he fix the USB panel, he also updated the wiring to code. Very knowledgable and friendly guy.

  • *****

    Great
    I'm very happy with the work performed by Discount Electric. They charged me a reasonable amount and I like that they came in, they did the job correctly and they left without a bunch of baloney.

  • *****

    Awesome!
    I had someone come out from Discount Electric recently. I thought he was awesome, I just don't have time to leave a detailed review. He did a really great job and I was very happy with the service. No complaints.

    I had an outage with my power in several rooms of my residence. I looked for an electrician and came across David's Discount Electric. A crew of 2 came over per my request. They had to troubleshoot the problem source, on where the issue was. I live in a home built in the 40's, so it was a little difficult at first locating the problem. With their efforts and tenacity, they found and fixed the problem. I will use David's Discount Electric again, and highly recommend to anyone with any electrical needs.

  • *****

    Awesome! Awesome! Awesome!
    There is just one way that I would describe the guy that came out to my home from Discount Electric, Awesome! Awesome! Awesome! He works very hard and makes sure that everything is done correctly the first time. He does a really great job every time and I would not hesitate to call him in the future if another problem arose. If you are looking for a good electrician, this is definitely who you want.

  • *****

    Good Company!
    They are such a good company. Their services are good. The quality is good. Overall it was a great experience.

  • *****

    They did a stellar job!
    Tony and Ronnie from Discount Electric were absolutely great! They never stopped working the whole time they were here and it was clear that they really knew what they were doing. I called them due to the fact that another electrician I had blew the circuit in my home leaving me without power for three entire days. I like spending my money on quality services and I knew from the determination of the guys from Discount Electric that they took real pride in their workmanship. I take a fairly old school approach to services where I only pay for work done well and I was happy to pay a bit more for such an exceptional job. I bought them out a big bowl of feta cheese because they were working so hard, I'd recommend them highly!

  • *****

    Wow! What an electrical OMG!
    One side of my bedroom went out, and that was weird because the other half of the room was fine.
    (Ok it was in another circuit).
    After 4.5 hours of searching the issue, Tony thought he'd found a perplexing solution, & the lights/switch came back on. But oh No, they stayed on!
    I found that the original problem was not fixed, but only masked. So I had to call Discount Electric back out.
    Two days later and 3 more hours later, Tony found the problem (in another adjoining room -"a burnt out wall plug caused a big short)"!

    Wow! I have to say the guys at discount searched and searched, determined to resolve this crazy issue. And walla! They did.

    Thanks guys. I really appreciate all of your efforts. And after I recoup from this big expense, I WILL CALL you again form some electrical enhancements I really want to do.

    Thanks again

    I've Had A Good Experience
    I found Discount Electric from the Yellow Pages. The technician came to my home to fix a plug in one of my bedrooms and installed a bathroom light. I continue to do business with them because of their reasonable prices.

  • *****

    I don't waste my time writing reviews unless warranted.This guy was great. Friendly, knowledgeable and affordable. I got an appointment the next day from when I called and when he was running about 10 mins late he gave me a call beforehand to let me know. He came in, and found what was wrong within 10 minutes.

    Give them a try you'll be happy.

  • *****

    Trustworthy and professional in every way.
    I had a couple electrical problems first of all that I had Discount Electric work on and then I had them install my camera security system. Everything is working perfectly. I have no complaints at all. As a woman who lives alone, it's nice to be able to trust a contractor. I had a different contractor who I had to sue, and I did win. The men from Discount Electric are very nice, very reliable, and very professional in every way. I have had them here about four or five times now. I keep hiring them because of their integrity and their dependence. If they tell you they are going to be here, they're here. I don't think I could find anything better. I have used both of the men and would say that about both of them.

  • *****

    Everything has been smooth for five years.
    I've had no problems with David of Discount Electric in the five years I've been dealing with him. As long as that stays true, I'll give fives and send anybody over.

  • *****

    Discount Electric offered a good price for what I needed.
    The guy from Discount Electric was really good. He gave me a good price and told it like it was the whole time. He was able to replace just part of a hot tub cord that I thought I'd have to replace entirely, so he saved me a good deal of money.

  • *****

    A wonderful experience!
    Discount Electric was great. I was having problems with the refrigerator. There was an electrician from a different company who came to take a look. He said the only way we could get another fridge in was by breaking through what was behind it, a tile wall! I didn't want that, so he just left, which was rude. So, I had to go look in the telephone book cause I needed to find someone else to do the job, and I took a chance on David. He said all that I needed to do was change the plug. It was a five minute job once you got the fridge moved out. When I said I lived in Oakland, David said they didn't do service in that area, but that he did have a man on a job in Berkeley and that fellow could come by and do the job. It happened exactly as he said. They were wonderful. I told him that I wished that when I needed an electrician, he would come down. He said that when I call them, if they have someone nearby doing work, they'll put me on the list. He was open to working with me even though he didn't have to. The fellow who came by was patient. He even waited as I washed the floor, then he did the job and was off. He also called the appliance store and explained to them about the repair, so now they can put in a new fridge. David was kind, helpful, and reasonable. He's a smart man. He knows his business and is a great at it.

  • *****

    Discount Electric is professional and got the job done.
    I had a light switch that wasn't working, meaning a few lights in the house weren't working either. David of Discount Electric sent an assistant out to do some troubleshooting and fix it all. Everything works fine now.

  • *****

    I would not hesitate to recommend this technician and his company.
    I had the technician from Discount Electric rewire for my new television. It went fine. It was sort of spur of the moment. This guy was moving everything to paint the wall and I didn't want to move everything again, so I figured I'd try to get someone out to fix this electrical outlet that fell out of the wall. You don't mess with electricity; you call an electrician. It was a pig in a poke, but they were right around corner and were able to get here fast. The technician was polite, neat, and clean. He did what I needed doing at a reasonable price. I was very pleased. He changed out two switches: one double outlet and one double switch. The double switch is by the front door and turned out the opposite of what it should be, but it works and it's safe and that's all I care about. On should be up and down should be off and it goes the other way, but I'm fine with it. I'm going to call him again to do work in kitchen, which is the highest recommendation I can give. He really had a mess to work with also. I live in a mobile home and what he was working on was put together with spit and little else. He told me it was just about the worst he had seen. He made it right and made it good. I feel very safe with the work he did.

  • *****

    They were great!
    Discount Electric was very professional! They knew what they were doing. They were also late, but that happens. I would use them again!

  • *****

    Fantastic
    Discount Electric provided electrical services for my garage and my backyard. David was prompt and his work was done right the first time. He was clear about what needs to get done and there were no surprises. He has a very knowledgeable team and he knows his stuff very well. I would recommend him.

  • *****

    Nicest electrician you could possibly get!
    I would give Discount Electric ten stars if I could! This is the second time they've come in the last year. This time, they installed an oven and fixed an old outlet. Prior to that, they installed an AC pad for my grandparents, and put new outlets in a room for us. We really like them!

  • *****

    On time, top quality work, very professional!
    Discount Electric did a great job! They did some exterior lighting around the driveway as well as some repairs, and cleaned up after a prior contractor's mess. They did it all in an efficient frame of time. I found them in the phone book, so I was lucky! If I need that type of work done in the future, I'd call them.

  • *****

    Great service at good prices.
    I called Discount Electric to install concealed lights in my living room ceiling. I initially wanted five lights, and we agreed on the price per light over the phone. They came on time, and while we figured out where to put the lights, we decided it might be good to do six lights instead of five. They were able to take the extra time to do that. The quality of the work was good.

  • *****

    Excellent!
    Discount Electric did an excellent job. We had some burnt wires in the breaker box, and they fixed that. We also had some electrical outlets replaced, and a fan installed. All in all, they did a great job!

  • *****

    They do a good job.
    I've been a customer of Discount Electric for five or six years. They are very good at electrical work. They make themselves available whenever you call, and they know what they're doing. They're nice about coming out for emergency calls. No complaints.

  • *****

    If they can't fix it, no one can!
    We're an apartment complex and I call Discount Electric whenever we have electrical issues that we cant handle. They always come out promptly and provide great services! In the past, they've fixed breaker boxes, breaker switches and light fixtures inside and outside the building. When it comes to electric services, I don't call anyone else - only Discount Electric!

  • *****

    Really good. If I ever need another electrician he will be the one to call.
    David from Discount Electric is a young guy that came out here. He was very nice and you know friendly, the price was reasonable I guess but the price of everything has gone up so much, it's hard to know. I was very satisfied with the work they did. He took his time and fixed it right. He came in and finished the job that some other guys started and didn't do anything with. it was a little expensive, but that's how it goes these times. If I ever need another electrician he will be the one to call.

  • *****

    We will continue to keep working with Discount Electric
    We have had a long history with Discount Electric and have been working with them for at least twenty years even when Dave's dad was running the company. The level of service has not dropped or decreased since Dave became owner and manager and we can always rely on Discount to do the job for us. Dave is always available and punctual and we have been very satisfied with him and the services he provides. He's an excellent and efficient technician and we will continue our relationship with Discount Electric.

  • *****

    My dimmer went out last night on my chandelier and I had a ceiling fan that was temperamental- the light worked sometimes but the fan always worked, so obviously something was loose. I called Discount Electric, spoke with the owner and he had someone come same day. Everything works well and pricing is reasonable. I would use them again.

    My lights started to flicker in my dining room out of the blue, so I looked up Electricians to solve my problem. Found Discount Electric through yelp due to their outstanding ratings and I have to say the ratings didn't lie. They came out figured out the issue (a rodent had chewed on a loose wire under the house) not only did they replace the bad wire but setup it up in a area so I wouldn't have to worry about this type of problem again. If I ever have another electrical issue I know who to go to without a doubt.

    I live in a fairly old house, but Im pretty handy and have learned to deal with most of its quirks. However, recently I needed to get some re-wiring done in the kitchen. For fear of burning the house down I decided to call an electrician. I called a few places, but David was the only one who could come over and get to work right away. The price was more than fair, in fact it was BELOW his original estimate, and they did a great job. The guys were clean, respectful of my space, professional, and got it done in no time. If I have any future problems Im calling them right away. I cant imagine a better interaction. Thanks so much guys!

    The 24-hour emergency service that is offered is the biggest bonus to going with Discount Electric. They cut right to the source of our electrical problem. It was apparently a very common one, but because they have so much experience it was fixed promptly and for a reasonable price. Theyre very polite and theyre billing was straightforward. They also offered a one-year guarantee, which I really liked!

    After experiencing their hands-on top class services I can surely say that Discount Electric is very good at responding and taking care of your needs in a time efficient manner. I am the owner of an apartment rental company where our tenants expect reliable persons to come in and take care of their electrical discomforts right away. I've been with this electric parts company for years and yet still I wasn't able to find someone or a company capable of being as reliable or consistent as they are. I'd totally recommend to anyone because they are one of the best at what they do.

    I had Discount Electric help me out with my electrical issue after I had a handy man who "Thought " he knew what he was doing. Make things worse after keeping me up for 3 hrs . Told him to leave. I called and had Discount come to my home and they resolved the issue and cleaned up the mess the handy man did. Thank goodness for good electrician and being cost effective too!! Would highly recommend this company!!

    I have a 4 unit apartment building in Castro Valley that was built in the 1960's. I recently had an electrical problem in one of the apartments. I called Discount Electric and they came out and fixed the problem the same day. I thought it was going to be a huge bill. It turned out to be some loose connections behind the breaker box.  The cost was very reasonable. I have now used this company a couple of times. They are very honest and NOT out to hemorrhage you for all your money. I really recommend this company!!

    Discount Electric is great! They replaced my doorbell and now it sounds loud and clear so I can hear when people come to my house again! Before, I would miss packages because I couldn't hear the doorbell. They may charge a lot but they are sure worth it. Thanks, Discount Electric!!

    Four hours before the big family reunion and with a turkey and a ham in the oven and AC blasting my mother-in-law's circuit breaker died. Frantic, we all jumped on our phones. Discount said he could be there in 20 minutes to fix the problem. Did a great job and within less than 90 minutes the food was again cooking and we were all cool. Thanks!

    My apartment is often experiencing one technical issue or another. This time around it was our fan that was on the fritz. David was able to come over and carefully knock it into shape for an unbelievably low price! I cannot wait to contact them again when something else goes wrong. They were much more efficient than my complex electricians.

    Discount Electronic performed a number of different services for me in the past. So why did I choose this company above the rest? Well as a single woman who lives alone, complete trust in contractors should never be given. The male technicians employed at Discount Electronic are very professional, well-dressed and mannerly. By judging from my previous experience in the past on their integrity, service reliability and of course my safety. I'll continue to hire them.

    I am a single mother and needed some security lights installed for my home safety, Discount Electric got the job done. The company was reasonable with the service pricing; I had called around to see about a better deal but I couldn't find one. Discount Electric had a great website and when I called them they gave me all of the information I needed to know for my lighting project. I am very satisfied with the results I got exactly what I asked for and nothing extra or complicated. This company gave me what I wanted on time and again at an affordable price, which is what was most important to me.

    Best Electrician in Town

    I called Discount Electric for power panel problem in the morning; Dave came and took care of the problem very quickly after he arrived. He was very helpful, and always answered all the questions that we had. We believe that we have found a great electrician that we trust and will go back to Discount Electric and Dave again for the upgrade of our power panel.

    The people at Discount Electric know their business. Their website seems like one that would belong to a smaller company and I was a bit wary of that, but as you read through, you'll see that they are Better Business Bureau approved and that they display their contractor's license number. In other words - they completely check out!

    Their customer service is awesome, and they have great perks like their 24-hour emergency service.

    Great company!

    Discount Electric is clearly the most honest and knowledgeable Electric company in the entire area. I would say Northern California from Hayward to the Bay area. After 30 plus years in business, David Nuccitelli knows his business like no other. I got several bids ranging from $1200 to $7,200. He came out to Los Altos and immediately just tightened screws and checked everything and realized that I had been dealing with CROOKS. So, to make a long story short his total was under $300. We were told that it was an old panel with aluminum wiring, etc. and hot panel. None was true. He just tightened the screws, checked the whole house and was absolutely BRILLIANT. Smart, honest, fast.
