Artisan Electric

A higher standard. A greener future.


We never stop working to raise the bar for quality, artistry, and customer service. Grounded in years of experience, and looking ahead to the future of the industry, we continue to evolve as leaders in the Puget Sound’s clean energy movement.


Our work is on the cutting edge of solar technology and design. Inspired by each customer’s unique vision, we seek creative ways to integrate form, function, and power. Of the over 850 residential and commercial solar arrays we have installed throughout the Puget Sound, many have set precedents for design, local sourcing, and incentive eligibility.


Artisan has built a reputation for superior quality and service, and we work hard to stay at the top of our field. Surpassing industry standards, we stand behind our work with a five-year guarantee. We are the Puget Sound’s only solar contractor whose team is 100% professionally trained and licensed journeyman electricians and apprentices—all of whom share our commitment to total customer satisfaction.


Artisan is a local resource for education, advocacy, and strong business partnerships. For the past three years, Artisan has been selected as a preferred contractor for Northwest SEED and Seattle City Light’s Solarize Seattle campaigns—one of only two contractors identified as “the best match for this community.” From solar workshops to community campaigns, we help the Puget Sound realize its clean energy potential.


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 850 solar photovoltaic (PV) systems totaling more than 4 MW 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.
