Dollens Electric Corp recently installed these solar panels on a client’s roof.

Dollens Electric Corp services and installs electrical and solar power systems for residential and commercial clients throughout the Greater Bay Area. The company’s electrical services include breaker panel upgrades; switch and outlet replacements; outdoor spa wiring; recessed lighting, generator, ceiling fan and motion-activated security lighting installations; and more. For solar systems, it offers complete design, installation and testing services—including energy audits and site surveys—and submits tax credits and other incentive paperwork through its SunnyCal Solar division.

Owner Jason Dollens started his electrical career installing and supporting computer systems that were built for visual imaging and radiography. He became an electrical apprentice soon after and spent many years working for a union shop before establishing Dollens Electric Corp in 2005. “I’ve always liked the technical side of systems installation,” he says. “I enjoy finding solutions to my customers’ electrical problems.”

Dollens Electric Corp also installs whole house fans made by industry leader AirScape, which can be mounted between existing rafter spacing (eliminating the need for intrusive cutting) and are backed by a three-year warranty. To learn more or to schedule an appointment, Mr. Dollens invites potential customers to visit www.dollenselectric.com.
