I recently purchased an electric car (Chevy Volt). I wanted to put a 220 volt charger in my garage. Point Loma Electric was suggested by the folks that will provide my charger. I need to mention that my house is over 65 years old and was built by a single individual (not an electric whiz) way back then. Jim Dent smiled when he saw my three (3) antique breaker boxes and named every breaker by sight (even they are no longer manufactured). He did a thorough examination of my requirements, gave me a quote on a new meter and breaker box, came to the house at the hour he promised, and finished the big job in one day. They cleaned up the original electrical mess that I had, installed a single breaker box (eliminating the original 3), and I now have a modern 200 amp service instead of the shaky 100 amp service that I had. His price was fair, his service excellent, and his crew cleaned up the premises and left it spotless. I'm now a fan of Point Loma Electric! They have my highest recomendation

Jim and Mark did a great job fixing some electrical issues at my house. They were professional and efficient with their time. They explained the reasons why I was experiencing problems as well as what they did to fix the problems. I strongly recommend Point Loma Electric.

Jim of Point Loma Electric did a terrific job on my residential project. Even though the old wiring presented a challenge, Jim found a great way to get the job done and the results were better than I expected. Jim was courteous, professional and clearly very skilled. I'd recommend him anytime!

We have an older 1950's home that other electricians quoted as 'difficult and challenging', but to Jim it was another day on the job. Jim and his Irish coworker performed the service upgrade in a matter of hours and finished off the other electrical work over the next few days. He gave us an honest quote on what was needed and what could wait. The best part about Jim is the attention to detail, he was on time each day, worked safely and efficiently and he even patched up the ceiling and walls when completed. We will be using Point Loma Electric for our future upgrades.

Jim and his Irish co-worker installed recessed lighting with dimmers in four bedrooms. The result is fantastic. They also installed some track lighting and replaced old outlets. We are very pleased with the results. The men were punctual and fast, and pleasant to have around. We will call them again with any future needs.

Jim Dent upgraded meter boxes and wiring for some older apartments recently, and his work was top-notch. He is a creative problem-solver who has the experience to do the job right the first time. I highly recommend him.

I live 3000 miles away and rent a home in the San Diego area. I had so much trouble finding an electrician, especially one that wasn't going to charge me through the roof. I got to speaking with Jim about my situation, my renters and money, and he really understood. Jim, thank you thank you thank you. You are my go to electrician.

I called Point Loma Electric after reading the Ad on Craigslist. Jim Dent,the owner, answered the call, gave me a ballpark figure I made an appointment. He came to the house, looked at the problem, and gave me a figure. He was extremely proficent and knowledgeable. I would highly recomend him to family and friends, let alone the general public. I feel lucky to have an electrician in San Diego, who I can trust.

Jim Dent just finished rewiring for us two older homes - rental units in need of an electrical upgrade. The problems were numerous and some were quite out of the ordinary. His estimate was fair, he was quick and efficient, and he went out of his way to meet the needs of our project. We found him in the Yellow Pages and feel lucky. For anyone looking for an honest and skilled electrician, we highly recommend Jim Dent (Point Loma Electric), especially for anyone with an older home in need of an electrical upgrade.

Jim of Pt. Loma Electric came to our rescue. We had an electrical emergency at our home and we were very concerned about the repair costs. Jim quickly diagnosed the problem, assessed what it would take to repair things and then worked up an estimate of the cost that showed how much he cared about us as customers facing an electrical emergency. He saved us a lot of money and is one of the most honest and professional electricians you could ever hope to hire. He not only did the job in the time he specified, but he came back to move a gate and put it in a new location! Now that is above and beyond. Our family gives our highest recommendation to Point Loma Electric. Professional work and with a caring attitude for the customer.

Impressed with the service and the creative solutions to awkward pre-conditions--he got it done when others would have said "no-way!". Fast, focused service! Jim cleans up after himself-- even offered to vacumn the worksite! So glad I found Jim again after using his services years ago on a condo re-wire. He's got my vote!

I am a Heating and Air Conditioning contractor in San Diego (owner of Guthrie and Sons Heating and Air) and have been looking for a good electrician for several years now with absoulutely no luck. That is until I found Jim from Point Loma Electric about 2 months ago and have been more than impressed ever since. I Have used him on several of my jobs now and he is never one to disapoint. With over 20 years in the trade Jim always is dressed clean, comes on time, is fair with his pricing, and always comes to the job with a great attitude. Im glad to have finally found an electrician I can refer to my clients. Thanks Jim and keep up the good honest work!

I might add that Guthrie and Sons is about the best heating and air company I've come across in a very long time, considering that there are so many in the SD area. I refer them to every one of my customers who ask, and I never refer any service contractor that does less than 100% PERFECT work. So when you need a great AC company, call Ben or Matt Guthrie, and as far as my "more than 20 years experience"? tell them that I celebrated my 20 years as a sparky in 1992! I'm aproaching 37 years of electrical work this June. Thanks guys!
James Dent the owner and operator of Point Loma Electric is honest, professional and extremely knowledgeable. His work is outstanding. He doesn't' cut corners and he takes the time to do things right. I really appreciate that. James completed an extensive and very difficult job of adding four new circuit breakers to an upstairs studio which required running wires through walls and an attic and connecting them to several outlets. The job was made even more difficult because the studio is on the second floor and the attic is small and cramped and is very difficult to move around in. Nevertheless, James did an outstanding job and we are very pleased with his work and professionalism. He suggested several ways for the work to be accomplished and is an extremely knowledgeable electrician. He was always on time, neat, cheerful and professional in every way. He patched all the holes that needed to be made in order to accomplish the work and thoroughly cleaned up everything when he was done each day. He is by far the best in price and workmanship of any electrician I have ever hired and I would not hesitate to hire him again for any and all electrical work and I highly recommend him and his company Point Loma Electric.
