Affordable Basics

No matter how straightforward the job, Rein Electric gives every customer the highest-quality service to ensure satisfaction with the results. Common lighting schemes are never cookie-cutter in our hands. Our consultative approach can adapt a universal solution to suit the unique needs of your space, while controlling costs by keeping things simple when appropriate. So if you just need to update existing features, or desire basic track lighting or recessed lighting for a space, we’ll make sure everything is safely installed and within your budget.



If your house were to lose power, how long would it take before you and your family would be seriously inconvenienced? If it were to happen during a storm, would your property’s basement be in danger of flooding? You never really want to find out the answers to these questions, and we can help you with options to ensure that you never have to. When utility power fails, a generator automatically turns the power back on to selected crucial circuits. Sump pumps, furnaces, air conditioning, refrigerators, lights, televisions and more can all be backed up this way with a system that runs on your reliable natural gas line. In addition to the peace of mind generators provide, they also enhance the resale value of a home.

Warranty Info

We are proud to install leading, innovative brands such as architectural lighting from Focal Point, IRiS, and RSA, and dimming systems from Lutron. We feel strongly enough about the quality of our work to back it with a five-year warranty, compared to most firms who offer one-year warranties.

Phone, Data, High Speed

Our electrical services extend to wiring your home for high-speed data transmissions/reception and computer networks. We are experienced in cabling Cat5, Cat5e, Cat6, networks, and cable television.

Commercial Electric

Whether your project is new construction, renovation or build-out, we have the trucks, tools and technical know-how to get any size job done right. We can provide 1200 Amp service and have extensive knowledge of the unique codes required for these environments. No wonder clients such as Radio Shack, GNC and Argo Tea have trusted us with their electrical work.

Retail Electric

We understand the unique requirements of a retail environment. The complexity of installation is based on creating atmosphere as much as general illumination. Lighting plays a major role in a customer’s experience and inclination to purchase, so your new construction, renovation or build-out deserves our attention to detail. We also provide reliable service calls clients that include David Yurman’s Gold Coast location.

24/7 Reliable Service Calls

When emergencies happen, timely response is critical to mitigate damage to property other loss due to interrupted service. Our team is available to serve you anytime the need arises. We pride ourselves on being proactive in our efforts to minimize later maintenance or the need for repair, but even jobs where we did not perform the initial electrical work rely on us for service calls because of our solid reputation for quality work at a fair price.

LED Lighting

Our knowledge of this highest-efficacy technology allows us to make the best possible use of LED lighting’s strengths, while being consultative regarding its limitations. We have experience in all practical applications for LED lighting, such as accenting coves, illuminating cabinets, or using an RBG color rotation to add drama to a space.

Recessed Lighting

This fundamental lighting fixture is a specialty for Rein Electric. We can advise on ideal products and placement for recessed lighting, from the sleekest trimless styles for a clean-looking ceiling to adjustable optic models for glare-free directional lighting. Highlight architectural elements or artwork – or merchandise in a retail environment – or simply provide ample ambient light to fill out a space and make it seem bigger.

Lighting Control

Give any room the convenience and energy-saving benefits of lighting control. Create scenes with layers of light, all working in harmony to set the appropriate mood. Our experience includes lighting controls for home theaters, where we can work in tandem with A/V specialists to ensure optimum results. Reduce energy consumption and prolong the life of your light bulbs even further with daylight harvesting, or controlling light levels in response to available daylight. But, if you need just a simple dimmer installed, we do that, too.
