Sbrega Electric was founded in January 2018 by Thomas Sbrega
Before Sbrega Electric was born, Tom managed the quality assurance department for a large, local solar company.
As a service tech and then manager, a strong knowledge base was formed.
Along with our design and installation expertise, we pride ourselves on using only high quality materials from trusted manufacturers.
With years of experience in the Solar / Electrical Industry, Thomas Sbrega decided to apply for a C-10 License and become a California Electrical Contractor.
History of Sbrega Electric
In 2010 I purchased property in Coarsegold CA with a friend. One of the first choices we had to make was between paying $20,000+ to the utility company or attempting to live “off-grid”. It took some solar panels w/ charger, a small inverter and four golf cart batteries to run the fridge and have enough energy available for some typical electronic devices, including an LED TV and laptop. This was the beginning of my fascination with solar.
Four batteries turned to 8, then 16, and now 24. My friend lives on that property with his family of five still today completely “off-grid”. Stories like this are not typical, however they do prove off-grid living can be accomplished successfully for a family home.
come a long way!
Up until around 2018, the battery technology remained relatively the same in the market as the day we set up our off-grid system all those years ago. Now things are different, and it’s very exciting to be able to offer things we were once only talking about.
The solar professional world must transition into a group of specialist who understand renewable resources and storage batteries more intimately. I started Sbrega Electric to lead that transition.
Our Solar Company is a family owned and operated business. My partner and wife Crystal runs the office and I take care of the daily operations. This allows us to remain very competitive in our bids. Another reason I'm optimistic for the future of our family owned and operated business venture!
