What Customers Are Saying…

“Jim has been a hired contractor of mine for 15+ years assisting me in all my electrical needs. My facility is 1.1 million sq ft Refrigerated Food Warehouse. They are very professional, prompt, always safety concerned and very responsive for emergency calls. I’ve trusted them with all my commercial needs and residential needs. Fair, honest, family oriented small business. TrueNorth is capable of installing 100% of the fiber optics for an International Airport runway system down to installing a fan in your bathroom. I’ve hired them for jobs exceeding $300000 and jobs for $150.Leave no trace behind company, always clean job site. I could go on and on because im obviously bias after 15 years but you will not be disappointed in the service you receive.”

“Had put off having hot tub disconnected to haul away plus patio lights hadn’t worked for over 2 years. Recommended due to them doing great work at my school- called them and they came out the next day. Arrived on time, great communication, fixed my patio lights and unhooked hot tub- putting soil etc back so there wasn’t any trip hazards. So impressed- Going to have them get me quotes on some other projects around my house! Highly recommend- they are great!!”

“We have used a number of companies in the past to do wiring and installations, most do a good job. Last year we did an addition to our home and the contractor recommended True North Electric, LLC for the wiring and fixture installation. We were so pleased with the quality of the work that we just had them return to do another small job of wiring for a heating system for our garage. Again, the quality of the work was outstanding and the cost was reasonable. They don’t cut corners and use quality materials. From the quote to the finished project they were timely and a pleasure to work with. And . . . they return phone calls. It just doesn’t get any better then that!”
