About Us, Our Mission, and Our Guarantee

Steve Breton has been a Master Electrician and Electrical Contractor since 1988 and acquired his Journeyman license in 1982. He has a wide range of experience, from small residential jobs to complex commercial projects. Steve is a 2nd generation electrician. His Dad, Master Electrician Gerard Breton, served Wakefield and surrounding communities for over 40 years.

Steve started working with his Dad in the 1970s, giving him over 45 years of experience in the field and in-depth knowledge of old wiring. He is also a top-notch problem solver with hands-on experience in many of the construction and renovation fields, including HVAC, sump-pump and drainage issues, back-up generators, and General Contractor coordination issues.

Steve is also an avid sailor and sailboat racer, as well as an expert at repairing boats. He sails out of Quannapowitt Yacht Club in Wakefield MA and is currently, starting in 2016, on the town appointed Lake Quanapowitt Committee that is exploring ways to improve the health of the lake.

Breton Electric has been providing outstanding and trustworthy service to residential and commercial customers from its Wakefield location since 1995, when Steve moved back to Massachusetts from NH.
