About Pals Electric

Pals Electric, Inc. is a Teutopolis based electrical contractor that has been providing quality electrical services for over 30 years. Mike Pals started the company in 1980 as a single man operation with one service truck.  Mike concentrated on commercial and residential projects, while building strong relationships with his customers.  In 1994 his son Matt began apprenticing under him.  Matt completed the IBEW’s 5 year trade school in 2004 and eventually became president and owner of Pals Electric, Inc.  Today we have 27 highly-skilled team members.  We service Illinois, including Effingham and its surrounding counties.  We have also completed projects in Indiana, Kentucky, Missouri, Ohio, Michigan, Arkansas, Georgia, and Nebraska.

Before an employee becomes a permanent Pals Electric employee they must complete a rigorous 5 year apprenticeship program.  In this program they must log a minimum of 900 hours of classroom training and 8,000 hours of job site training, complete a 40-hour welding class, three 8-hour first aid CPR classes, and also complete and OSHA 30-hour safety class.

We are dedicated to providing our customers highly trained, experienced, and safety conscious electricians.  In addition to their training, Pals Electric team members participate in ongoing weekly, quarterly, and yearly mandatory safety education.  Two of our team members are Briggs & Stratton® Generator factory trained technicians, four are OSHA certified climbers, five techs are 3M certified high voltage splicers, and two team members have completed the National Technology Transfer Inc. 21-hour variable frequency drives class.
