Hegge Electrical Contractors, Inc., has been locally owned and operated since 1988. Jim Hegge founded the company with a vision of building an electrical contracting company that would place the needs of customers first while offering employees the opportunity to work in an environment where their skills, hard work and dedication are well respected and valued. Today, we continue to exceed customers' expectations because of our constant dedication to the highest level of professional standards.
After 8 years working as a supervising electrician, Jim started Hegge Electrical Contractors, Inc. in 1988 as a small electrical construction company that specialized in wiring single-family homes. Over the years he took on new and different projects including commercial buildings and 12kv RV parks, eventually expanding into multi-million dollar custom homes. Throughout his career, Jim has kept a constant eye towards staying current with the latest technological and design trends. With this goal in mind, Jim became certified as a designer/installer of Lutron lighting control systems in 2000 and AutoCAD in 2001. AutoCAD allows him to draw custom electrical plans for both local architects and Hegge Electric customers alike. In 2009 Jim attended Solar Energy International's Solar Professional trainings so that he would be able to expand his services to include solar consultations and installations. Since then Jim has been able to help his customers gain the most energy and financial benefits not only with the knowledge he gained through these trainings, but also with his in depth knowledge of both the relevant tax codes and utility company rebates.
Jim's reputation as a first rate contractor led him to be appointed to the City of La Quinta's Contractor's Arbitration Board in 1994. He has also been a long time member of the Chamber of Commerce and has been recognized for his voluntary contributions to local city events. Because Jim has maintained a close relationship with city officials, he has been able to stay as up to date as possible with changes to local and state building codes and ensure that the work his company performs is not only in line with these specifications but also those of the National Electric Code.
While raising her family in the Coachella Valley and working behind the scenes in the family electrical contracting business, Sherryl discovered that her customers had a need that was not being fully met. Her husband ensured that only the top quality work was done in the new homes he helped to create, but she realized that often her customers also needed quality electrical service after their homes had been completed. With this goal in mind, Sherryl created Hegge Electric's service department. She works with her service team to ensure they always do their best to help make Hegge Electrical Contractors, Inc's customers comfortable by providing them with clear information and the prompt and reliable service she would expect of any company coming to her own home.
With over 25 years in the business, Sherryl has developed important contacts with the cities, utility companies, and suppliers to effortlessly guide her customers thru any installation requested, whether it is for their business or home. Working side by side with her husband Jim, she has constant and total access to his 30 years of electrical knowledge and support. However, Sherryl also brings her own touch to Hegge Electrical Contractors, Inc. and uses it to help ensure that her customers feel comfortable and that the service department's work meets all of her customers' goals and expectations.
