Master Electrical began over 30 years ago as a technically based, heavy commercial electrical company. Its current owner, Doug Albertson bought the business close to 12 years ago and has kept the original business intact and has expanded our services offered. While we still do heavy commercial work, we now specialize in the sales, maintenance, and installation of generators throughout Richmond and Central Virginia for both residents and business owners.

Our number one goal as a faith-based organization is to stay customer and employee focused, making sure we do right by the people we work with every day. Whether it’s by doing our best work with a Generac or Kohler generator installation or by stopping in to make sure your backup power is functioning properly the day before a storm hits. We want to be there to make sure you never have to be without power when you employ our services.

If you have any additional questions about our products, maintenance plans, or service areas, please do not hesitate to give us a call. We can take care of any residential or commercial generator need as well as electrical-related commercial or industrial services including heavy switchgear equipment.
