Why do our licensing dollars get spent on enforcement?

Unlicensed contractors pose a safety risk and take jobs away from Licensed Electrical Contractors. We enforce regulations to create a safe, fair, competitive marketplace, one where everyone is playing by the same rules.

That’s why we aggressively pursue prosecutions, fines and jail time for those doing unlicensed work. Convictions deliver a clear message that putting public safety at risk has serious consequences. 

Awareness campaigns remind the public that hiring a licensed electrical contractor is the law. In fact, people who see our ads are almost twice as likely to hire a licensed electrical contractor.
