Locally Owned Small Business


Dave Smith established Smith Electrical Contractors, Inc. in 2006 in San Diego and has worked hard to grow the business year after year and provide quality electrical and customer service to residential and commercial customers in the county.

His one-man shop evolved into a staff of about 20, an office in El Cajon, and a fleet of Smith Electrical vehicles. Dave is proud of his team of electricians, stucco repair and trenching staff, and administrative staff as well as his Smith Solar installations, Tesla installations, and ClipperCreek installations.

We are grateful for our loyal clients, new customers, and industry partners all over San Diego County.
