We hired Santa Monica Electric to install outdoor lights and cameras at our home. After a bad experience with a different electrical company, Paul from Santa Monica Electric was like a breath of fresh air. From the first moment we spoke, it was obvious that he is an expert in his field. We appreciate his efficient and thorough work. He even threw in a few dimmers at no cost and took the time to speak with another service provider to answer questions about installing an intercom for us. Paul’s a good dude.

For close to 20 years Santa Monica Electric has been our go-to electrician for all of the properties in our portfolio. Paul and his team are very responsive and great dealing with our tenants. They always do first-class work for us on jobs both big and small. We would recommend them to anyone.

Paul came out at 3:30 p.m. on a Friday afternoon and worked until about 7:30 pm to solve an electrical problem that left us without hot water. (We have an electrical-ignition tankless water-heater.) He explained the problem clearly and was more than fair in his pricing, and he stayed to solve the problem that day.

We'd been in construction on our new shop in Santa Monica for almost a year when we hit a major electrical snag. When our own electrician couldn't sort it out, we turned to Paul Wegner at Santa Monica Electric. Even though he was in the middle of a huge job miles away, Paul made time to come to our site and get to the heart of the problem. Not only did he address our electrical issues but he actually acted as the mediator with the city and cleared up the whole mess. Don't know what we would have done without him. Only wish we'd worked with Paul from the beginning—we might have been able to move into our shop a lot sooner!

Paul did fantastic work. He was able to fix all of our problems with great speed and efficiency. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for an electrician. He has been one of the best people we've worked with so far since moving into our new home.

I had to have a new electric panel in my 1958 home and I called Paul to do it. It was old and needed to be removed and replaced. Paul labeled everything and we passed inspection. He was on time and cleaned up everything.

We found Santa Monica Electric through neighbor2neighbor. Paul Wegner worked on an addition to our house, an office. He had to remove the main house panel to the addition. He is professional and punctual. He knows all the rules and regulations and got us through the inspections, making sure that we got what we wanted. He does good work, his prices are market-fair, everything works and he cleaned up. And Paul is full of wonderful advice!

Paul came out to do outside electrical work for our patio. He is very responsible, knowledgeable and reasonable. The work was excellent. I would use him again in a heartbeat!


Los Angeles - September 28, 2007

They were prompt and fixed exactly what needed to be done even though it wasn't an electric problem. Turns out it was a wire for our security system. Great service. Thanks again for the referral. We are considering a full electrical overhaul on our house and I will definitely call them again.

I’ve been working with Santa Monica Electric for about 5 years and I’ve had a great experience. They are very responsive, on time, honest and reliable.


Santa Monica - November 4, 2006

I manage office and condo buildings and I’ve used Paul’s company for years. He’s worked on big jobs and small repairs for me. He has a very fair hourly rate, and he’s a local institution – born and raised in Santa Monica. He’s dependable, organized and very honest.


Los Angeles - October 30, 2006

Paul has been our electrician for many years. He’s reputable and professional. His workers are great and we’ve always been pleased with his work, fair pricing and honesty. He’s really a good person that we are glad to recommend.


Los Angeles - September 24, 2006

Paul has worked for me for twenty years and I like him a lot! He’s honest and so dependable.
