About Western Summit Electric

A team of dedicated professional electricians who have been providing electrical services to the Greater Vancouver Area and Lower Mainland.

Who We Are

As Chad Friesen, owner, progressed through his electrical career, he noticed a large negative stereotype associated with trades people and electricians – they were seen as rude, unfriendly, dishonest and greedy. 

As someone who loves and takes pride in his trade, Chad was disheartened. His favourite part of his career is his day-to-day working relationships and interactions with customers to bring their electrical dreams to fruition. Seeing the look on a customer’s face at the end of the project is why Chad continues to do what he does.

Western Summit Electric’s goal is to change the stereotype. From the largest projects to the smallest, we are here to work with our customers in a safe, professional, friendly and most importantly, honest manner, to achieve exactly what our customers want. 

When I needed to renovate a rental apartment that I owned, I wanted to upgrade the lighting.  I asked Chad to give me suggestions and do the install.  He removed the old fluorescent fixtures in the kitchen and installed LED potlights, ensuring that the work areas would be well  lit and the lighting was even.  He developed an ingenious solution for undercabinet lighting (Ikea) so I didn’t have to spend hundreds of dollars on Ikea’s system.  He fished wire through walls and the ceiling to provide living room lighting that is the envy of other tenants.  I couldn’t be happier with the final product coming in at a great price with high quality work.  I’ll call him again for the next reno!
