I have worked with Ethan for most of the last decade on electrical projects big and small. The relationship lasted longer than most vendor relationships because he is both highly proficient in his trade, is highly respectful of client relationships and homes and brings a problem-solving approach to his efforts. He often brings better ideas than a builder or architect might have presented and brings his years of experience to selecting fixtures, systems and switching. Lastly, when I called Ethan, either he or his #2 Hector would come to my home - I never had to be concerned about a new person showing up who didn’t know the home or my family. I would not hesitate to recommend Ethan for the electrical needs of any homeowner.

We have been using Wilder Electric for over 20 years.  Our experience with Ethan and his staff has been 100% positive. He books an appointment when requested as soon as he possibly can and gets the job done correctly. They have worked on large jobs for us during remodeling and small jobs as well. The service is always the same, great. His staff (Hector) is extremely polite and knowledgeable, completing a job correctly and quickly. Ethan is a great guy and extremely trustworthy. We would never consider using anyone else for electrical work.

Ethan worked on the restoration of my house fourteen years ago.  Besides doing a great job then, he has always made himself available to us when needed.  Hector and he are always a pleasure to work with!!!

I have worked with Ethan Wilder for over a decade.  I find his craftsmanship to be impeccable and that is accentuated by his honesty and integrity. He is cost-effective and I have no hesitation to providing him access to my home when no one is present. This is an unqualified endorsement!

Ethan Wilder is a consummate professional.  He makes people his first priority and his work is outstanding.  Any project we have presented to him, he has done thoroughly and always at a fair price.

We are long standing, satisfied customers of Wilder Electrical. Their prompt, efficient, and professional service sets them apart from the rest. We have used Ethan for all of our electrical needs- including installing overhead lighting, rewiring our circuit breaker, and outfitting us with a generator. We have always been very pleased with the quality of their work and highly recommend them.

Ethan has been our “go to” electrician for over 10 years and we have been very happy with the service and support he has provided.  We would recommend his company without hesitation.

I highly recommend Ethan Wilder Electrical Co.  I have been a customer for 15 years.  Ethan and his assistant Hector did all the electrical work in my new home.  Many years later everything still works and looks great.

Ethan and his team did the original electrical work when we built our house seven years ago and have been back countless times to help us over the years.  They do impeccable work, offer terrific advice and most importantly.... do what they say they will do (and beyond), when they say they will do it.  We have recommended them many times over the years and will continue to do so in the future.

I hired Wilder Electrical Contracting about five months before Super Storm Sandy, to install a generator outlet. Ethan arrived on time, installed the outlet and then to my surprise, showed me in detail how to safely operate the generator. While doing that, he balanced the electrical panel for optimum performance with the generator. While he was there he also installed additional outdoor outlets and basement lights. When Sandy hit, my generator ran like a champ and I had full electrical power in my home. His prices were reasonable and without the "BS" trip fees other electrical contractors charge. I would highly recommend Ethan for all electrical needs and would trust him in my home alone.

Thank you for all the work that you did on my house.  It’s a breath of fresh air to have a contractor that can actually show up and do the work when and how it was promised. I would surely refer you to my friends and have you do more work at my home.

Thanks Jon, Short Hills, NJ


Ethan always shows up when he says he is going to, which is a rare trait in a contractor today. No wasted time sitting around waiting for someone to show up. His work is superb and always cleans up when he is finished also rare traits in a tradesperson.

There are certain things in this world we take for granted, and almost all of them need electricity to work. It's a great comfort to know when we need an electrician; the folks at Wilder Electric are there to provide prompt, competent and affordable service. Over the years they have been there every time we've needed them, and we've always been very pleased with the professional and outstanding work they do.

Wilder Electric has been my choice of electrical contractors for the past nine years.  As a residential up-market developer, I require contractors who fully understand the electrical code, and all its details, while maintaining a "big picture" perspective that allows the creativity that sets my projects apart from the crowd.  As principal of Wilder Electric, Ethan is always on the job and ensures a timely, quality product.  He is a professional who understand budgets, timelines and the need to communicate with other trades.  I recommend Wilder Electric without reservation.

I just completed a massive renovation on a Summit home where Ethan Wilder was the electrical contractor. Ethan and his team were extremely knowledgeable and helpful on the jobsite. They were able to solve issues right away, have solutions for uncommon applications and able to install some complicated and expensive lighting without hesitation.

After this experience I have Ethan as my go to electrical contractor.
