About Electrical Enlightenment

Electrical Enlightenment was founded in 2000 by Ron Soltis. It is a division of Enlightenment Companies Holdings LLC, which also provides services for the Plumbing, Mechanical, and Earth Work trades.

A common question we hear is, “Why is the company called Electrical Enlightenment instead of Enlightenment Estimating?"
Our answer: Estimating is not all that we do. We are a full service Consulting & Estimating firm. Electrical Enlightenment is the one-stop shop for contractor business development, estimating, design build, job lead assistance, financial analysis, labor & overhead assessments, and more.

Electrical Enlightenment partners with organizations all over the world. No job is too small or too large for our team. We have a staff of full-time electrical estimators with a combined 300 years of experience. Each member of our electrical estimating team is required to complete a standardized training program developed by the founder. The estimator receives continuous training and code updating during employment with the company.

We take pride in doing our job and doing it well. We are also proud of the long-lasting and mutually beneficial relationships we have with our clients. Our legions of satisfied customers can testify to our professionalism, courtesy, and easygoing demeanor.

    ELECTRICAL ENLIGHTENMENT WAS FOUNDED

    The begin of a great adventure

    Electrical Enlightenment was founded in June of 2000 by Ron Soltis. The company engaged in electrical contractor training throughout the United States. The training was focused on contractors needs for business development, labor management, and estimating. In 2001 a shift in the U.S. economy had changed the contractor’s needs for training to quality estimating. The shift to providing estimating services to electrical contractors was immediate. Electrical Enlightenment turned its focus to electrical estimating.
