Your best choice in Brighton for a reliable, quality electrician



Regardless of whether you need the whole works, or just a few circuits replacing; Whether it's an occupied rewire, or a refurbishment from an empty shell; We guarantee the highest standard of work from start to finish, and at a price that won't break the bank.

Consumer Units

Modern fuse boards offer many advantages over the older rewirable fuse, still found in many properties today.  The latest 17th edition of the IEEE electrical wiring regulations requires that, with few exceptions, new electrical work must be protected by an RCD. The most cost effective solution is to fit a modern fuse board which will then add this enhanced protection to all the circuits in your house.

Gardens, Sheds and Outdoor

Outdoors we can offer you everything from a simple power point for the lawn mower to full garden schemes with automatically controlled water and lighting features.We can do a light in the shed, a full hobbiests garage workshop or a garden office. We regularly work in partnership with several local landscaping companies to truly give your garden that ‘Grand Designs’ look, but are also just as happy replacing a single lantern in your porch. 

Test & Inspection

The documented inspection of an electrical system details areas requiring improvement in order to ensure ongoing safety.  They should be regularly updated in rental properties and commercial / industrial locations and also recommended for domestic premises, or during house purchases. We'll explain our findings as clearly as we can but believe that it's not a sales exercise – if there’s nothing needs doing, that’s a good result too. 

Fault Finding

The lights keep fusing, or the fuse board keeps tripping out, or there’s no power at all; This is where experience matters! We can spot the common, but not necessarily obvious, faults in minutes. If it’s something a little more evasive or intermittent we’ll help you track it down for a price you'll be pleased with (we've got some of the best hourly rates in the business). We've always said no fix, no fee, and we're still here saying it today


Up-to-date product knowledge and expert advice available on lighting design for all scales of new project,

We're also happy to take on all the smaller jobs and will fit, move and change lights, switches, dimmers and transformers with the same attention to detailas every other job we do. (And we promise to be nice when you tell us you’ve just removed your old fitting and now there seems to be one wire too many to go in your new Ikea shade,and now none of the lights in your house will work....)


New sockets, showers, cookers, heaters; Moving or flushing-in existing cables or accessories; No matter what the job, we’ll recommend the best way to complete any task that will fit both your needs and your budget.


Tightening of regulations over time means that many older properties are insufficiently earthed but,as your primary protection against electrocution in the event of a fault, it is critical that all the earthing provisions are in place. Additionally any metal service pipes to your property (water, gas oil etc) shouldbe connected directly to the electrical earth point. If you have any concerns, we can advice and resolve as required.

We Also Do...

Door intercoms, entry systems and door bells; Fans, extractors and ventilation; Smoke alarms; Networking and LAN cabling; Audio systems; T V points and video distribution; Phone extensions;

In fact if it's got wires in it - We can probably help!


CanElectric has been trading since 2007 and has developed a well earned reputation for high quality work, good value pricing, and exceptional customer service.

With the qualifications to meet or exceed government requirements on competency in electrical installations and annually vetted under the Part P scheme, all our work is fully compliant with BS7671, but we also go further, drawing on a wealth of experience from outside the industry.

Whether it’s the deep understanding of first principal electricity gained through an engineering honours degree, the project management and design skills gained from the manufacturing sector, or the high standards of customer satisfaction learnt from some of the UK’s leading retailers, we expect you’ll experience the difference.

We have a real passion for electrics, and a personal approach to all our clients, often found lacking in some of the ‘old guard’ companies. We offer free advice beforehand giving you as many options as you need, describe the scope of the work in terms you will understand, so you know exactly what to expect and always give firm quotes rather than estimates where we possibly can (and explain why if we can’t).We work hard during the day – we believe time paid for is time on the job - so we don’t languish over out tea, we don’t read the paper. Where possible materials are purchased before we arrive and we keep good stocks of common items in the van at all times.

We can be contacted via phone, email or through our website. If you aren’t answered immediately (we’re often working too hard to pick up!) we do guarantee to reply to all messages as quickly as we can.

We look forward to hearing from you.

James Cannell - CanElectric

We take our environmental responsibilities seriously.

We've been leading the way installing low energy LED lighting for several years, and also promote a host of other energy reducing options. 

Where at all possible we'll separate waste for easy recycling, and although we're legally prevented from removing bulk trade waste ourselves, always insist on using a licenced carrier to ensure correct disposal.

As of 2017 CanElectric is also running an all-electric Nissan e-NV200 as it's main vehicle meaning zero emissions and zero noise as we cruise the Sussex streets, benefiting all around.







For any enquiries, or further questions, please feel free to call, text or email. We are often working hard during the day, sometimes making it difficult to pick up the phone for every call, so text or email is preferred (but not essential) - we do promise to respond to all messages as quickly as we possibly can.
