Our Story

Day Electric was formed after owner, Phillip Day, recognized a need in the solar industry to provide quality electricians to a customer base that continued to expand and evolve. We have seen the solar industry change from small, simple systems to complex utility-scale power plants. We grew along with the solar industry as it grew and met the many challenges along the way. We continue to do so every day and learn from each project we complete.

After becoming a nation's leader in solar maintenance and repair, the business expanded, and we now have east and west coast divisions of Day Electric offering local regions with safe and reliable electrical services. With main offices in Virginia and California, we are able to provide electricians and technicians to a wide client base across the nation.


Day Electric is staffed with some of the industry's most qualified and experienced technicians, electricians, managers, and executives. What makes us different is our hands-on approach to working with each of our clients. Founder, Phillip Day, is very involved in each and every project and brings his expertise as a Master Electrician and many years of experience in the solar industry to each project. We solve complex problems as a team and take pride in the work that we do. We approach our client relationships like a small business, but we have grown to be a national leader in solar repowering, O&M, and electrical services because of our team's combined experience and resources, impeccable safety record, and dedication to our clients.
