The Apadana Difference

There are many electrical contractors, but only one Apadana. What makes us different?

Commitment to Quality. We only employ the most experienced electricians and install only best-in-class materials to ensure your long-term satisfaction.

Technical Expertise. Apadana is staffed primarily with electricians and engineers, so we have the expertise to  solve the most challenging lighting and control scenarios. In fact, other contractors often come to us when they have a problem that they can't solve!

Responsive Service. Our customers continually tell us that we’re there when they need us. We promptly return all calls and show up when we’ve promised.

Clean Work. Nothing is worse than a messy contractor! Our team works clean and leaves your site clean.

Communication. Before, during and after your project, we provide you with updates on our progress and once we’re finished, we make sure your systems are working properly and to your full satisfaction.

Safety First. We take safety seriously. Our staff is fully trained on all safety regulations and receive regular training to keep the workplace safe for our team, and everyone who visits the site.

Fair & Reasonable. We offer no-obligation quotations. We buy materials at “best prices” to save you money. And our team works quickly and efficiently. The end result is fair and reasonable prices for our products and services.

Our Credentials. We staff licensed Master and Journeymen electricians whose technical know-how and craftsmanship ensure that your job will be done right – the first time. We’re fully licensed, bonded and insured for your protection. We warranty all of our work.

Apadana, LLC has been a recipient of Xcel Energy's "Energy Efficiency Partner" Award three years in a row!
