Team Bios

Get to know the team behind Watt Electric Inc.

When Robyn and Josh started Watt Electric Inc., they had two young boys and one on the way. Their goal as a young couple was to be able to make a difference in not only their own lives but the lives of those around them. Watt’s goal was to reach and impact as many families, homeowners, and businesses as they could with a service built on trust. As W.E.I has grown from service to your one stop electrical solution we always put our customers’ needs first and provide the best possible service. They believe that identifying the individual needs of every project is essential to a successful result.

“Our community is part of our family and every relationship we establish is important to us. Every job we take on, no matter how big or small, receives the same quality, respect, and attention to detail. This is the love we pour into our family and our work.”
