Regular Hours

General Info:

My father apprenticed to his father-and I apprenticed to mine, repeating an invaluable tradition of child labor and a great place to learn a trade. Beginning at the age of 13, I worked with my dad every weekend and summer vacation in homes throughout Philadelphia repairing and rewiring all levels of residential electrical systems. Studying electrical engineering and earning a degree in architecture has given me a solid advantage in solving the myriad of residential electrical problems.

Success! Thanks for posting your review of Generation 3 Electric. You’ve done the world some good today.

HIGHLY Recommended

I've been through a lot of contractors -- and a handful of electricians -- and I've never come across a more reliable and professional set of guys. First, they're punctual -- they actually show up when they say they will! This was unprecedented for me. Second, they're courteous -- they even put on little booties as soon as they step into your house, so as not to drag dirt inside. That's a small thing, for sure, but s... view more

NOT Recommended.

Not recommended,. They are almost 50% higher than the company we used and they were not equipped to do the job needed that day. I needed emergency work and I had no faith in the overpriced technician they sent . Don't waste your time .

Excellent and reliable

I have now used G3 Electric twice, and am extremely happy with the results both times. G3 rewired our entire house before we moved in two years ago. Our 100 year-old house had old knob-and tube wiring which was in a dangerous condition. G3 rewired our entire house from top to bottom - a huge job, including a new circuit breaker box in the basement. They completed this extremely complex job in just one week, knowing w... view more

Overpriced , way overpriced

Overpriced and outrageous. I got 4 estimates on rewiring a home , 1 was $ 8000. 1 was 9500. , another was 11,000 ..they wanted to charge me $34,000 !!! Thats TRIPLE what everyone else wanted . I suggest calling a fairly priced company because they are so far out of the ballpark .

shop around FIRST!! overpriced

I had gen 3 do work at our house. It was an emergency so I was in a panic. They took complete advantage of the situation! They told mre I needed a new amp service , 100 and charhed be over $4000!!! I had other electricians call me back and when I checked prices I was told a 100 amp like I got was $1800 maximum !! I had a building inspector come out and a PECO guy and they both said I was robbed without a gun. BE AWAR... view more

Complete Professionals

Generation recently completed a major update to the electrical system in my aged center city house. The work included a new breaker panel, new circuits, and diagnosis and repair of a variety of issues from simple receptacles to a complete tracing of all of the circuits in the house.\r \r Todd was supervisor on the job and did a terrific job. He carefully reviewed all of the work done by the 3 other workers who came t... view more

Big Fan of Generation 3...

After reading the many reviews -- the vast majority of which were glowing -- of this outstanding phila-based business, i gotta say that the few negative postings strike me as little more than the petty rants of Gen-3's competitors who find it easier to smear a business than it is to earn a solid reputation on the merits of their own good work. I'm a small-business owner myself and I know the damage that can be done b... view more

Excellent Service

I have recently relocated to the Philadelphia area and have utilized GEN 3 on numerous occasions to perform electrical services and installations. They are professional, courteous and expeditious. Gen 3 performed the work for my business as quoted in a timely manner. I would highly recommend them for all of your electrical needs. Two thumbs up!

Excellent Service

I am a new business owner who has all the associated problems with opening a new business. The service I received from Generation 3 Electric was superb. Bottom line, I worry about three things: time of work needed to be done, quality of work, and cost. On all three fronts, Generation 3 Electric delivered.
