It's always a pleasure working with Direct Electric Hawaii. They truly care and their attention to detail is unmatched.
Got a reference to Direct Electric (among others) through Home Advisor. Rod Martin followed up on my request for references, but I was already considering some other referrals when Rod called, so I told him "maybe some other time." As it turns out, for various reasons, I could not get any of the other electricians to make an acceptable proposal to do the multiple small tasks I wanted done for a reasonable price within a reasonable time frame. So after 2 or 3 days of trying and beginning to feel a little desperate, I went back to Direct Electric and called Rod. Boy, am I glad I did! In the space of 1 hour, I got an attractive proposal from Rod and commitment to do the job within the next 2 days, all over the phone. As things turned out, he was at my home the next day with an assistant, and got all the several tasks I wanted done in expeditious fashion. Almost as importantly, Rod was great to work with, responded thoughtfully to all my questions, explained everything he was doing, came up with solutions when unexpected problems surfaced, and best of all, did everything the way I wanted it done. Bottom line: Direct Electric did a great job for a very reasonable price. As a bonus, the principal, Rod Martin, is both personable and professional. From now on, Direct Electric gets all the electrical work for which I do the hiring.
Before putting up my solar system I consulted with 3 companies. The two large solar companies sent out a salesman to pitch solar who assured me that the designers and electricians would take care of everything after I signed the papers. With the guys from Direct Electric, I received detailed information regarding the panels, inverters, cabling, roof location, service interconnect and necessary panel upgrades right from the first meeting from the actual system engineer not a salesman who was going to refer my questions to somebody else. I have a difficult roof of Monier Tile with a prior coating and an open beam ceiling underneath. Direct Elecric understood my concerns about the roof and ordered a special double flanged bracket instead of the normal z bracket offered by the other companies. The installers were extremely careful on the roof and hit every beam perfectly. A professional roofer stated that if I put solar on the roof as it is now I would have cracked tiles and leaks immediately. Thanks to the care and professionalism of the DEC installers I have no leaks and no cracked roof tiles. All the permitting process, interaction with HECO, and final approvals were handled perfectly. I was kept informed every step of the way as the process moved through the stages and everything was on time and on schedule.
Hawaii has a lot of solar companies that will throw some solar panels on your roof. However, if you want personalized service, done on time, on schedule and on budget by consummate professionals, I suggest you use Direct Electric for your solar/electrical needs.
