What is an Electrical Contractor?

An electrical contractor is a company or businessperson that has been trained to perform specialized construction that relates to the design, the installation, and the maintenance of electrical systems. An electrical contractor works with both low-voltage lighting and high-voltage power transmission to make sure that both systems are safe and environmentally sound.

An electrical contractor from Lloyd’s Electric Service is classified by the type of work that is done.

A line or outside electrical contractor works on the distribution lines and high-voltage transmission and sees that the power that is being generated by the power plant is safely being carried before it arrives to a residential or commercial property.

An inside electrical contractor is trained and licensed to provide electricity to any type of structure, whether it is commercial or residential. An inside electrical contractor can also be a prime contractor for cabling, electrical, installation and of course, maintenance.

A person who has been trained and licensed could be deemed an electrician or may be employed by an electrical contractor. In some states, the licensing requirements are separate for both the electrical contractor and the electrician.

An electrician may also be classified as an apprentice, someone who is currently enrolled in an electrician apprenticeship training program, a journeyman, someone who has already completed the apprenticeship, or a master electrician. A master electrician is a journeyman who has already completed more testing and training.
