Sanford Electric Company

With staycations, social distancing, and working from home becoming the norm, many residents are focusing attention on their own outdoor space. Sanford Electric Company, celebrating its 95th anniversary this year, knows just how to help by choreographing LED landscape lighting to create the ideal ambiance for relaxation.

Jim DePoy, president and electrical contractor of Sanford Electric Company, says Central Florida’s environment allows residents to enjoy landscape lighting year-round.

“More outdoor living is going on right now,” says Jim, who began at the company as an electrician in 1982 and eventually bought the Sanford mainstay in 2010. “As people spend more time at home, outdoor projects are becoming a priority. We have had a lot of outdoor-related work this year.”

Fully recognizing today’s heightened health concerns, Jim notes that since the installation of landscape lighting is conducted outdoors, customers can rest easy while the work is being done. Nonetheless, whether the service technicians are outside or inside the home catering to an indoor issue, they all wear masks, social distance, and use hand sanitizers.

“We are following all of the CDC guidelines,” notes Jim.

When enhancing or installing landscape lighting, adding security lighting to the mix is an excellent way of protecting your property. Some lighting fixtures can be controlled by apps when away from home.

Beyond lighting, Sanford Electric Company’s professionally trained technicians can install generators outside of the home to keep the lights on when the power goes out.

“You need electricity for just about everything, even things you might not think of offhand,” adds Lisa Sullivan, business manager, who has been with the company since 2005. “It’s especially important with medical equipment.”

She adds that the company also installs a significant amount of accent lighting – and holiday lighting – for homeowner associations and commercial entities to illuminate neighborhood entrances, palm trees, and fountains.

Sanford Electric Company employs nine men and women and serves the five-county area of Seminole, Orange, Volusia, Osceola, and Lake counties. Serving both residential and commercial properties, the company offers new construction or remodel wiring, home rewiring, ceiling-fan installations, switch and outlet repairs, panel upgrades, electrical inspections, and interior and exterior LED lighting.

Founded on the three main principles of providing quality electrical installations, offering a fair and reasonable price for its services, and treating everyone with integrity and respect, Sanford Electric Company can address any sized job while offering the most cost-effective method of resolving an issue or enhancing your home.
