Artisan Electric Inc. was founded in 2007 by Jason Williams, a union journeyman and experienced residential and commercial electrician who wanted to exercise his passion for energy efficiency and renewable energy solutions. He formed Artisan Electric as a signatory IBEW contractor and hired other professionally trained union electricians from the Local 46 hall, and began to focus on designing and constructing the highest quality solar installations in a fledgling industry.

Several years and much success later, Artisan outgrew the offices on Vashon Island, and in 2013, relocated to our permanent headquarters in the historic Georgetown neighborhood of Seattle. Artisan has grown to a total of 31 full time staff (and growing).

To date, Artisan has installed over 1000 solar photovoltaic (PV) systems totaling more than 7,000 kW of production capacity.


Artisan empowers people to energy independence through innovation. As a renewable energy contractor, we feel a moral imperative to combat climate change through education and implementation. Artisan has been a leader in raising public awareness about clean energy, energy efficiency, and global climate change through the use of workshops, webinars, lectures, tours, and work with lawmakers on policy at the state level. We continually strive to raise the bar with our projects, and with our investment in our employees. Artisan is a signatory IBEW Local 46 Electrical Contractor dedicated to providing living wages and long-term careers in the energy industry.
