Welcome to Black Hawk Electric


At Black Hawk Electric, integrity, reliability, and quality are not just buzzwords. Our values come forth in everything we do. This foundation for success is why we’ve grown from a home-based operation in 1956 to our current modern facility in Escondido.

Black Hawk’s hard work and commitment to quality has paid off in the opportunity to wire tens of thousands of units, including multi-family and single family dwellings, office buildings, and office improvements.

When you choose Black Hawk Electric, you’ve partnered with a team-oriented ally with decades of experience. Whether you are building homes, apartments, offices, student housing, or parking structures, we’ve got the “stuff” that counts: depth of expertise, competitive pricing, professionalism, customer service, and reliability. But don’t just listen to us, listen to some of our customers:


“My experiences with Black Hawk Electric is nothing short of excellent. Throughout the entire construction process, I always felt that Black Hawk was looking after the best interest of the project and I always felt comfortable that whatever the challenges they would be there to implement an effective solution. It is always a pleasure to work with people who maintain such a high level of honesty, unbelievable knowledge, professionalism, attention to detail and just plain common courtesy.”

“Black Hawk has earned the position as a “Top Gun” subcontractor for the San Diego office of Cannon Constructors. They are supportive during preconstruction, and they are a preferred subcontractor by our operations team members. The attitude each Black Hawk employee brings to our projects is solution oriented and “what’s best for the project”. Everyone at Cannon appreciates that, and knows that the Black Hawk Team will respond as needed.”
