About Us



After eighteen years of managing large-scale projects with a well-known commercial electrical contractor, Photon Electric's founder, Chris Estereicher, decided that he wanted to take on the challenge of becoming an independent, service-oriented, client-focused electrical contractor. 

As a result, Chris founded Photon Electric in 2018. Since then, the business has grown to offer a wide range of services including distribution systems, power generation, fire alarm systems, tenant improvements, LED lighting retrofits, data communications, and much more.



To create innovative solutions through mastery in our fields of expertise in order to overcome challenges that our customers and partners face.

To provide superior quality electrical services that clients recommend, contractors prefer, and that employees are proud of.

Niesz Koziol

Apprentice Electrician, B. Eng.

By the time Niesz earned her Bachelor of Engineering in Building Engineering, she knew that a traditional career in engineering was not for her. Her thirst for hands-on work led her to pursue a career as an electrician. During her apprenticeship, she had the opportunity to apply her electrical knowledge on a variety of projects including the construction of multi-story commercial buildings, a hotel renovation, tenant upgrades, installation and upgrading of fire alarm systems, as well as service and maintenance jobs. Her engineering background and organizational skills allowed her to take on leadership roles early on in her apprenticeship.
