Local. Dependable. Family.

Our Story

It started with a dream.
After over 20 years working in the electrical business in Santa Barbara, Jeff Askew wanted more. He wanted to build a business with, and for, his family. More than just a company, a legacy. So in 2016, Jeff and his eldest son, Connor, started C.R. Electric Co. using his son's two first initials as inspiration.

Jeff also desired to build a business where employees came together to work through life’s difficulties, not just to work - where the company is like family.  With a firm belief that happy employees make happy clients and that working at the company is more than just a job, he set out to build longevity in his workforce. C.R. Electric is building careers, not hiring workers.

“I have dealt with Jeff for years. Quality work at reasonable pricing. We all have experienced vendor tardiness, not C.R., always prompt and dependable. Great work, great service, but maybe most important just great guys!”
