Provided excellent advice on the spot by phone!

I had a problem with one of the GFI outlets and Bill immediately provided some troubleshooting steps over the phone that allowed me to find the source of the problem! Other companies would first talk about money. Bill is service driven; results first!!! I will highly recommend Hannay Electric to whoever is willing to listen.

Class service

An area of my in-laws home was without power. Over the phone I was given directions on what to check. None of the circuit breakers looked like they were kicked off. I did check each one as suggested and encountered a difficult breaker. I was able to finally get it to move and power was restored to the area of the home. I really appreciate the patience displayed on the phone call.

Rick Posterick

Ceil fan installed

Did a great job and will use him again if I need a electric, got the job done fast and explained how everything worked.

Daniel Davis

Great service, reasonably priced

When our electric water heater had a connection problem, I remembered we’d had Bill do a couple of small jobs for us before, and called him. He came out late on the same day and did a good quick fix, and we talked about other work we’d like done. He returned on the date he gave us, bringing lights and dimmers I’d requested. He fixed the connection, replaced a number of lights and switches, cleaned up, and were gone by lunchtime. Excellent service! Very happy with their work, and I’ll call again when we need something.

Marilyn Baldwin

Did a great job

I highly recommend Hannay electric. He did a great job at fixing our furnace.

Chad Dudinsky

Customer Service

I reached out to Bill to fix my light fixture for something that I thought was very complicated. He was gracious enough to give me instructions on how to safely do it without charge. I appreciated his customer service and his willingness to help.

Rachel Sumo


Had Bill out to fix what we thought was a broken outlet as we changed it out and still no power. Found out our garbage disposal had a trip on it and the outlet worked just fine. Bill was great and gave a great suggestion on replacing the disposal. I felt bad he came over for something like this, but he was honest and great. Didn’t charge for his time. Couldn’t be more greatful and will definitely use again if needed. 5 stars all the way.

Melissa Menne

great job

We had Bill out for our warm tiles in the bathroom. Texted him on the phone, took pictures and a week and half later he had the part and was ready to install it. Came out and put a new box in and it was ready to go and works perfectly now. Great job done and very quickly. We would hire him any time as knows what he is doing so would recommend him to anyone

Betty Hatton

Fantastic from start to finish

Before even scheduling an appointment with him, he spent a long time on the phone patiently explaining everything. The quote to replace the panel and move a light was reasonably priced. He let us know of something that was not up to code so we could correct the issue. Very professional, honest, cleaned up after everything and did some additional work on small issue he saw when working on the project. I will use Hannay Electric if I need future work done and would recommend him to everyone! Thank you!

Ann Rohrbach

Responded Same Day

Bill responded to our call the same day. He was very professional and asked many questions to ensure thoroughly what our need was and what is our current system he provided service with a week and did a great, professional job.

Larry and Julie Fries

Outstanding Customer Service!!

Bill is a true professional electrician! He is very much old school customer service while delivering the latest in technology and being up-to-date on the latest codes. Bill is a walking rule book which I so greatly appreciate. The is always clearly a right and wrong way. Bill will only do work the right way. Safety is first and foremost in his mind doing everything he does. Bill is a true American patriot and that shines through in his attitude and work ethic. I am proud to have work performed by him. I know his work reflects the utmost in high quality and integrity. Be prepared for the best customer service and support ever!

Mark Rossi

Responsive and Professional

Bill, answered my text right away and was dead on the money with his evaluation of my problem. His honesty and expertise I am grateful for. I was referred to him by a couple of buddies. We need more Bill’s in life.

Brett Johnson

Money Saver!

Storms last night caused power toss to most of my finished basement. Breaker reset did nothing. I learned from the prompt call back from the electrician that this was nothing more than a tripped GFI outlet (hiding behind the nightstand in the guest bedroom) ‘upstream’ from the other outlets on the circuit.

A huge ‘THANKS’ for the wisdom and honesty of this business! An unscrupulous business could have charged me for a service call to come out when that’s all the issue was! You’ve earned my business going forward! Thank you for putting my mind at ease and solving what my imagination thought could have been anything, including water damage since all the outlets affected were on a foundation wall! Am grateful you took the time to help troubleshoot and resolve this over the phone and for taking the stress out of an already hectic day!

Brett D Sullivan

Added 50 Amp service to outside

I called Hannay Electric to discuss getting 50 Amp service run to the far side of the house. Bill asked a lot of questions about what I wanted. About the fuse panel and where it was located. How old the house was. He asked more questions than than others. He was able to come out 10 days later (a lot sooner than anyone else) to look at the situation and provided a reasonable quote. We ok’ed the work to be done and he was out the very next day. He recommended that ALL of our smoke detectors be replaced and our carbon monoxide detectors. We had this done also. Bill was looking out for our safety. Very professional and reasonably priced. I would use Bill again.

Larry Fries

Professional. Clear communication. Highly recommend!

Bill was extremely professional prior to and upon arrival. He clearly communicated with me when he would be at my home. I have been working with a disabled dog, so I was focused on everything but what Bill needed from me. He was so patient, understanding, and flexible with me. He quickly fixed our issue, and explained what he thought had happened. The clear communication was AWESOME because I like to know what is going on. I would highly recommend Hannay Electric, and I will definitely be using them as our electrician from now on. 5 out of 5!

Ashley Lauren Duplessie

Help by phone

After I screwed up my electrical connections trying to install a light fixture, I called Hannay Electric whose sticker was posted on my circuit breaker box. Bill promptly returned my phone call and walked me through the proper connections over the phone without making a special repair trip to my house. He was courteous, responsive and did not charge me for his help. I will definitely call him if ever I need electrical repair services in the future. I highly recommend him. Thank you, Bill!

Took care of problem the day after we called.

Paul Coe

Outstanding Electrician

Bill was very professional. I reached out to him and he got back to me promptly, explained the problem and how to fix it the correct way. Very honest and trustworthy. Very knowledgeable! He even followed up with me after to make sure everything was working as it should be. Highly recommend this company for any electrical work you need done. Cannot say enough good things about this company!

Megan Klossner

Going above and beyond Service and customer care

I was looking for a electrician on emergency availability because I had half the house with electricity and no air conditioning. I called Hannay Electric and left a message explaining above situation and I was trying for the 3rd time of getting a correct breaker. I was at Home Depot at 9PM at night and Bill called me within 20 minutes of leaving him a message. He talked me through about getting the correct breaker and I said bill me for your time. Bill said no Kevin I want you to go home put the breaker in and call me so I know if it took care of the problem. So I got home put the breaker in and it only fixed part of the electric so I called Bill. I said it only fixed part of the lights and outlets and my daughters lift chair still doesn’t work( She has MS), plus no air conditioning. Bill said he would be out the next morning at 8. Arrived at 8:10, found a 2nd breaker that was bad but had not tripped. Replaced both breakers with upgraded breakers lights and all outlets worked. Then he went to work on the furnace the circuit board was fried called Thelen mechanical and they came out replaced board and everything worked. Bill was there a little after 8 and was done by 9. Outstanding individual very professional and doesn’t gouge the customer. He will be my electrician go to person for life. Plus he said if you need anything done I work with a lot of people who can help you with anything you would need in the future. Thanks Bill

Dedicated Navy Veteran Guarantees Safe Electrical Expertise for the Home.

In January this year, my wife and I purchased a new townhome in Ramsey (new to us but =?-15 years old). As one involved in the arts, I called on Navy veteran Bill Hannay to advise me on how best to convert the little space I had in my utility area into a fully operational home studio.
I was impressed that Bill managed to visit and consult with me within 3 days of my call where other electricians could not make it until one week to 10 days later. Bill was precise in what needed to be done and quoted me a reasonable price for extending a line of electricity from the utility room to the new home studio, plus the cost of adding 4 extra switch socket outlets to cater for my audio and video recording equipment.
He even went the extra mile by checking and advising on the safety and warning signals for the rest of the wiring and electrics in the home, for which I was only too pleased to add to the studio work.
Within 10 days, he was back with his son and partner Joe, complete with tall ladders for easier access to my vaulted ceilings. They worked on the studio and were done within 4 hours before proceeding with the rest of the home. Bill and his son are serious and diligent workers. How many other electricians out there would even advise on the requirements regarding residential fire extinguishers, carbon monoxide and smoke warning codes and regulations?
My wife and I would like to extend our sincere gratitude to Bill and Joe for their wonderful professionalism and sincerity in the way they rerouted wires in my studio and completed the additional electricals in the rest of the home. The discipline of a Navy veteran was obvious from the demeanor Bill showed before, during, and after he started working on the job. We sincerely appreciated his first-class work and are happy to present our 5***** stars and 110% recommendation to Bill Hannay for the excellent work done. We will not hesitate to recommend Hannay Electric to whomsoever might require electrical repairs, additions, or renovations for the home or business.

Dominic J Kanaventi

Absolutely Amazing!!!! Wow!

I can not say enough about Bill and His son, they were prompt, thorough, unbelievably knowledgeable and went above and beyond my expectations!!!!! I give them 10 stars!!!! I had a problem with part power in my home and Bill found the problem within minutes, got it fixed just as fast, and did numerous other things for me that went above and beyond!!!! Thank you so much, may you be blessed, beyond anything you can hope or imagine.

Julie Lanoue

Thanks for trouble shooting and solving our electrical problems.

Bill Hannay was recommended to us by another contractor who new Bill and was familiar with his skill as an electrician. On our appointment date, Bill called early to inform us of his expected arrival time. He was friendly and listened carefully, as I described the problem. He went to work immediately and was able to find the source of the problem and fix it promptly. Bill was hired to do additional electrical work on our bathroom remodel project, which was done carefully, including the clean-up. We are pleased with the work Bill Hannay Electric did for us and would recommend this electrical contractor for any residential electrical work.

Ken Sutton

So Impressed!

I can’t say enough good things about Hannay Electric. So knowledgeable! Very kind! Prompt and efficient! Neat and tidy, keeping all debris contained and even took my empty light fixture box with them. This company will be the first company I call for any future electrical needs I may have! Thank you Hannay Electric.

Jessica Aasheim

Impeccable Service

I am so grateful that Bill was the one that came out and fixed the electrical issues I was having. Not only was the work done impeccably, the service was on time, the pricing was very good and fair, everything was cleaned up and left in great condition. I am very happy with the work that was done and to top it off, Bill was very knowledgeable, honest and super nice, and so was his apprentice Joe! I highly recommend Hannay Electric!!!

Rachael Hortian

Quick Great service

Karen Abram

Highly Recommended!

We highly recommend Hannay Electric. Bill and team did a great job on our home remodel. Bill was very knowledgeable and helped solve several electrical challenges and offered great advice on lighting choices, fixtures, etc. They not only did quality work, but they also communicated clearly regarding schedules, work to be done, and costs. Everything was done on time and as promised. We have already recommended Hannay Electric to friends and family and will be using their services again soon.

Mike McNab

Helpful service

Bill was here within 24 hours of our text and fixed the issue quickly while also providing additional helpful information. When needed, we’ll definitely use again.

Nicole H

Great Service

I called & asked for same day service for a nagging electrical problem. They were kind enough to squeeze me in & solved our electrical problem quickly. Great service!

Lori Thompsom

Like hiring a friend

Expert work with lots of sound advice given at a reasonable price. It was like hiring a friend.

William Benassi

Amazing work!

William did an outstanding job helping me out . I bit off a bit more than I could chew and William was right there to lend a hand. Highly recommend his expertise.

Brandon Hotopp

Very helpful!

Kitchen power went out and he helped us fix it quickly. Great Guy for his knowledge.

Brenda Hennessy

Bill as always did a great job

This was my second time using Bill. As always he communicated when he would be out. He showed up and had to look at a couple of outlets that were not working. Bill and his helper found the issue and corrected it right away. I will always recommend Bill to anyone that needs electrical work completed.

Scott Throolin

Knowledgable / Professional / Thorough

We had a particular complex situation in a 115 year old house. Years of add on electrical work. Bill’s mastery of the latest electrical code and knowledge of the latest technology is impressive. He and his team were extremely attentive to accuracy and detail. The job was done right and on time. From now on Hannay Electric will get all my electrical work; and I won’t hesitate to refer family and friends.

Richard Kelly

William helped fix my electrical issue for free

Home depot techs were building a shed for me and ran their nail gun compressor from my outside electrical outlet. Then something went wrong and all outside outlets died and had no power. I jumped on Youtube looking for troubleshooting tips. Reset the switch panel, then checked GFI switches in the garage and all were fine. and still no power on the outlets and I was stumped. So I went to Ramsey facebook page and requested them to recommend an electrician. 10 people responded and 6 of them recommended William Hannay. So I called him and left a voicemail. He texted back and asked what the issue was. I told him and he asked what year my house was built. It was 1994. So he told me that building code then said that outside outlets are controlled by bathroom GFI outlets. Sure enough, I checked it and it had tripped. Set it back again and the power came back to outside outlets. Thank you so much William. Now my Christmas lights are back up. And all for free. Now I know whom to call for my future electrical needs.

Dylan K

Much Appreciated

Bathroom switch light was out. Sent a text about the situation. They were out the next day for a basic repair of a loose wire inside the wall and explained the issue and suggested/recommended we switch to different lighting. Worked out great and definitely will be using Hannay Electric again for any electrical issues.


Fast and Efficient

When I required electric work to be done fast, Bill made it happen! He was honest, professional, personable, and made things right. He knows his stuff! Do NOT hesitate to hire him for any electric needs you have. Thanks Bill! Your integrity is appreciated, more than you will ever know!

Katy Duerr

Electric super hero

I can’t begin to say how happy I am with the electrical work that I had done by the owner of Hannay Electric. Bill is so quick and certainly knows what he has to accomplish. It was amazing to watch how the work progressed with such ease and efficiency! It seems like second nature for him. His apprentice works with him, hand to hand, and seems to know just what he needs to do, as well.

Delores Matz

Best service ever!

If you ever need an electrician, Bill is your guy! He’s friendly and very efficient and had everything up and running in less than 30 minutes! Will definitely keep him on speed dial.

Wally and Pat Nelson

Quick, easy, professional.

Putting things back together without having extra parts has never been a strong suit of mine in home repairs. I can do tile and landscaping and a lot of the easy stuff, but sometimes it is better to have a professional do it. Bill is a professional. He is a friendly person, straight to the point and serious about what he does. If you need electrical work done in your home, save yourself a lot of time and headache and give Bill a call. He’ll fix it fast and at a reasonable price. Thanks Bill, very much appreciated. Go Navy.

Alan Dix

Great Work!

No lights in the kitchen and dining room. Outlets worked. Not the breaker, we couldn’t figure it out. Didn’t take long for Bill and apprentice to solve our problem! We have lights again! They got right down to business figuring out our issue. Very professional and respectful of our home and property. Offered great advice on preventing any possible problems in the future. Will definitely call Hannay Electric again!

Gwen Nadeau

Great work!!!!

We had an outlet that went bad on us, and shut down the entire circuit. Bill gave a quote over the phone, and came over and replaced both the outlet and the circuit breaker, and changed out the housing to something that worked better for us. Very professional and prompt. I saved the number to use for any future needs!

Tanya Bagwell

Great Work!

Hannay Electric installed a new LED security light on my pole barn and they did a great job! They gave a quote via texting and they were very prompt on the installation. I highly recommend them and I know they will be my first contact for future electrical work! Scott

Scott Brabec

Above and beyond

Bill went way above and beyond!

We’ve been working with a crappy contractor and didn’t want to add another project on the crappy contractor so after receiving a recommendation from Facebook we called Hannay Electric (Bill), he listened to our complaints about our contractor and gave his advice which was much appreciated!!!!

Really all we needed was a light above our sink installed!!!! We got helpful advice, a sink light installed, a kitchen light fixture installed and most importantly a contractor we know we can count on to keep their word, knowledgeable and will get the job done!!!!! We also gained someone who if he doesn’t know the job he definitely knows someone who does!!!!! Thanks Bill!!!!!!

Michelle Juaire

Quality, professional workmanship

I have used Hannay Electric at my home for a garage re-wire as well as various jobs for the business I own. A true throwback, Hannay Electric operates with integrity, honesty, timeliness and professionalism that is rare it seems these days. Will for sure be calling Bill and Hannay Electric the next time I need quality electrical work done.

Jamie Bosch

Awesome Job!

Bill did a great job on a lower floor remodeling project: family room, basement, utility room, and garage.
His attention to detail and customer focused attitude make him a pleasure to work with. Highly recommended.

Michael Cavanaugh

Thanks, Bill!

Bill made quick work of a small job. Before we began he explained options to the project so I could make an informed decision. I appreciated that. On time, courteous, fair. Thanks.

Rod Eaton

Friendly, thorough and honest

Honest, polite and trustworthy. Explained as project to install light fixtures and ceiling fan on 19 1/2” ceiling progressed. Good suggestions and asked appropriate questions. Fair price and paid attention to the details! We will definitely use Bill for future electric work arises.

John Hageman

Fast great service!!

We called Hannay Electric for some work on out house that was up for sale. Bill was up front and worked us in when I knew it was probably out of his way. We had a time deadline and he showed up ready to go. Great service, good pricing. I would DEFINITELY recommend him and all of them at Hannay Electric!

Brett Carpenter

Expert Advice

Called Bill and described a problem we have been having for two years with a couple outlets. He talked me through the situation and was able to find the solution without even coming out. Excellent service!


Great Job

Had a number of little projects that needed completing (light switch, overhead light, doorbell and ceiling fan). AlL work was completed quickly. Everyone was helpful and polite. Finished project was wonderful. Will call them for all electrical work in future.

Tony Czech

Impressive Service

Of the 4 electricians I called only Bill responded and followed through with my repair in a timely manner. He and his apprentice were extremely professional and efficient. I’m pleased to have them to rely on again for a kitchen and bathroom remodel planned this summer. I highly recommend Hannay Electric.

Lu Ann Parnell

Great work and highly professional!

I hired Bill to fix several outside outlets that went out. Bill was responsive and clear in his communications. He took care of the work quickly and did an awesome job!! I would definitely use his services again!

Dan Wisniewski

Fair Pricing and Honest

Initially hired Bill to troubleshoot a popping noise we heard near an outlet. We found out that the popping was actually a battery, but asked Bill to perform a sanity check on that outlet. We also had him replace a few outside fixtures.

During the inspection, Bill was very informative and gave things to me straight. He told me things that were issues, such as a previous owner not finishing the basement to code in regard to outlet placement, but didn’t use scare tactics or shove anything down my throat.

Bill and his assistant/apprentice performed their work with quality and at a fair price.

Ryan Lutgen

Great business- Top Quality- Excellent customer service!

I called Bill to installed two bathroom fans. He was fast and efficient. Several weeks went by and I noticed one of the fans was making a little sound. I called Bill and he said he would be by to check it out for me. Turns out it was just the wind moving the flapper on the fan. Perfectly normal. He was quick to check it out and took it down so he could explain what was happening and put my mind to rest. I am so glad I chose Bill to install my fans and now I have an experienced, dependable electrician to call on for all my future needs. Will recommend Hannay Electric all my friends.

marilyn hamill

Great job

Bill wired my barn for me. As it looked on the beginning we where going to have to trench for days across landscaping and a driveway. He worked with my electrical coop to get a transformer dropped closer to the project and no additional cost to me. The finished product is awesome. Honest guy keeps his word and does great work. Highly recommended.

Kirk Studebaker

Quick response and wonderful service

I found Bill thru Facebook and after reading so many wonderful reviews I felt confident reaching out to him. He did not disappoint. Not only was he able to come out and work on our outlets the day after I called him, he was a wealth knowledge! He took the time to help me understand some issues with our house and fixed an additional outlet in the kitchen for no cost. We are preparing to buy a new home and he gave me wonderful insights into things we should look for and offered to be a resource for us as we move forward in the selling/buying process. He also let me know he can refer me to other professionals that he has worked with and can recommend which will be very helpful. He quoted me a price prior to the work he did and the price did not change even though he did more work than we originally discussed. I will use Bill for all my electrical needs going forward and highly recommend him.

Leah Windom

GFI wont’ reset

I had a GFI that was kicking out causing my cable/internet to not work. I texted Hannay per the website instructions and received a call within 30 minutes. He was able to talk me through the troubleshooting and we were able to solve the problem. Great service and I will send any future business their way.

Greg Lutz

Great job, great people, great heart

My husband is a disabled vet. We found ourselves without hot water for almost 3 weeks. We had hsp and had them come out. They stated the issue was electrical and we needed an electrician. I contacted Beyond the Yellow Ribbon who put us in touch with a heating company. They referred us to Bill. Bill came out and inspected our electrical and took care of many things inside that were done incorrectly and passed by the inspector when the house was built. He also told us our water heater was shot. It was an electrical heater and he recommended we put in gas. This was just the beginning….. The new water heater cost almost $1800. which we had to put on a credit card and max out. Bill went to beyond the yellow ribbon and returned to our place a week later with a check from BTYR with a check to offset part of the cost. Then after Thanksgiving he returned and replaced our outside lights which were not installed correctly after the siding had been replaced, and an outside outlet. He brought new lights which are beautiful and didn’t charge us a cent. What a heart for our disabled vets. In addition to now having a great electrician I can call on who will but emergencies first, I have a friend. This company is great. They do it right and will not steer you wrong. They are truly service individuals.

Susan Miller


Bill was able to detect my house had faulty wiring for my dryer and not only prevented a house-fire, but fit the repair in quicker than the estimated repair time-frame. Thank you Bill!

Dawn Benson-Hance

Free of charge?!?

I had a small electrical issue and Bill was kind enough to help me over the phone for free! He walked me through what I needed to do and everything worked great and I saved money! He even followed up with me to make sure everything had turned out and it had! He will be the first electrician I call as some of my home remodeling projects get bigger. Thank you so much Bill! And thank you for your service!

Kelly Mills

Vet Discount Offered

If your looking for the best local electrician that offers a Veteran Discount look no further.
My service electrician was Bill, he was professional and a real pro, fasy reliable service.

Danny Hoffman

Great Customer Service

When trouble shooting my GFI outlet problem, Bill tried to walk me through a solution and save me money in preventing a service call, but I was unsuccessful.
We then schedule d an appointment and Bill showed up at my home. Bill was able to fix my electical issue within minutes. Great work from an experienced professional is priceless.

Danny Hoffman

Hannay Electric is the 5-Star Electric Company of Minnesota!

I have to give an easy ★★★★★ for this master electrician. When I brought an odd little project to his attention, I expected an eye-roll or three. Instead, he took every little detail quite seriously, and had some very insightful suggestions that were obviously backed by years of experience.

Every time he entered the home, he left it better than it was before he got there. Even on the first visit for the estimate, no work done, he noticed it was garbage day and took it upon himself to bring the cans down to the curb without saying a word- But we saw!

Bill and his team were always punctual, very respectful, tasteful, and experienced, and are the exact people you’d want on your most important project. I’d easily rate William Hannay as a 5-Star Master Electrician, and that Hannay Electric is definitely the 5-Star Electric Company of Elk River, Minnesota.

★★★★★ 5-Stars and they deserve every single one!

Rocky Borchardt

5 Stars for Bill

We were having a problem with our waterheater. Turns out it was an electrical issue and plumber couldn’t fix it, He recommended Bill at Hannay Electric.
Bill came out on the same day within a couple of hours. He was very professional and explained what the problem was and what he was going to do to fix it, all in terms we could understand. He was very courteous and efficient and made sure we understood. I immediately liked Bill his manner is no nonsense and down to earth and he’s a fellow veteran, a huge plus in my opinion.
Bill’s pricing is more than fair and you can be sure that you are getting your moneys worth. He loves what he does and it shows in his workmanship and business sense, You get the feeling that he’s working with you not just for you.
I found out later when he was done and ready to leave that it was his day off! how many people have that kind of commitment.

Mark Wilson

Great team

Bill was very aboveboard and straightforward. I like that in people I do business with.

Bill and Joe did a great job in installing a heater/fan combo my bathroom. Also they saw my smoke detectors were way out of date and replaced them too.

I’ll be contacting them in the future for installing some lights in my master bedroom closet.

Robert Haupert

Prompt and Professional

I had a laundry list of items. Bill replaced 5 light fixtures, a ceiling fan, installed nine smoke detectors (no more batteries to replace!) replaced lights in garage and garage door openers, plus a couple three-way switches, exterior receptacle and replaced weatherproof covers on outdoor receptacles… all in four hours. He is knowledgeable, prompt, efficient and cleaned up every bit of debris and hauled away old fixtures and packaging. I will definitely call him again if and when the need arises.

Joan Barkley

next day servicee

From notification via a mutual friend at 9:30 pm on a Friday night, Bill fixed my panel on Saturday morning and into the afternoon.
It was work on a very old house and saved me from making endless phone calls and remaining without power.

Katherine E Coolidge

Excellent Diagnostics

Losing power in “Half” of house was very puzzling. We troubleshooted everything we could think of and started calling electrician companies (keep your phone books…our interest went down). We tried calling numerous Electricians (off hours) none would help or just wouldn’t answer. Then we came across Hannay Electric. Wow Bill Hannay was so helpful! What a difference in customer service. Late on Sat. he asked a lot of questions to get an idea of what was happening in our home (all over the phone). He said it is most likely street side issue. Came down to being electric company’s issue Connexus (street side). We called them and they came out to fix it late that night and ended up being a whole neighborhood issue with gophers (not the MN Golden kind…LOL). Gave us a small transformed until Electric company could come out to the neighborhood to redo the whole neighborhood. We will keep Hannay Electric on our radar forever. Thank so much Bill for your excellent diagnostic skills and experience.


Fast response time and great service.

I put in a request for a local electrician on the app Thumbstack and a request went out to 4 local electricians. Hannay Electric LLC was the only company that responded to my request and he responded within 15-20 minutes. I was having issues with a circuit breaker and Bill spent about 10 minutes on the phone asking questions and explaining things to me before it was decided I needed to have a circuit breaker replaced. Bill said that he could stop by my house at the end of his day before he went home.
I am so thankful to have my AC up and running again and really appreciated Bill taking the time to fit me in.
I highly recommend Hannay Electric LLC for all of your electrical needs.

Amber VanCamp

Excellent service,

My husband tried to install some smart switches to be able to control our lights whether we are home or not. Unfortunately, it was wired in such a way as to make that impossible, but he couldn’t get it back to the original wiring either. I got a referral from a friend about Hannay Electric and sent a text. Anyone who owns a house knows how hard it is to get a contractor willing to work on a small job, but that wasn’t a factor with Hannay was Electrical. He explained to me over the phone that he has run into this in other houses built at the same time as ours (2010) and some of the switches with multiple controls simply can’t be wired for smart switches. I was pleasantly surprised when Hannay was available to come out the next day (I texted on a Sunday) and he was here right on schedule. He was very informative and helpful. His fee was reasonable (actually a little less than I expected) and he finished the job quickly and efficiently, while still finding the time to chat for a few minutes. Without a doubt I will use Hannay Electric again if the need arises. He was also good for my husband’s ego (as he is quite good at basic electrical work), reminding me to tell my husband no one could have made the switch do what we wanted it to do.

Tricia Kalinowski

Great Service

Bill made time to fit my repair in on short notice. He also explained everything very well.
Great experience.

Doug Freeman

Great Service

I was in desperate need of help with an electric project gone wrong. Called Hannay Electric on a Friday. Was told he couldn’t make it until the next Tuesday. Quicker response time than anyone else in a 50 mile radius. It was worth the wait and the price. The peace of mind it has given me is worth it. Job well done Sir, thank you.

Rich Ehrich

Wonderful Master Electrician

We needed an electrician ASAP and Hannay Electric Answered our text that very night and was out working on our problem within two days. Excellent worker and was very respectful. We would use him again. Nancy Sibley

I had my electric water fountains connected with outdoor extention cords which eventually caused a problem. He warned me what a bad and dangerous idea that was. Very helpful guy.

Barbara Milbradt

Great service and pricing

I had an electrical problem with my fuse box and they did a great job. Any one that needs an electrician Hannay is the best with service and pricing. So call Hannay Electric for your next service.

Dennis Steen

Electric Car Charger

I located Bill Hannay through TrustVets on line. I found him to be a professional and an advocate for his trade. He helped me prepare the site for a ClipperCreek electric car charging station. When on site, he and his son explained their process and how they stepped well beyond the Minnesota electrician code for installing a 220 volt line from my house panel to the charging station outside. His attention to detail provided me with a confidence that my job had his attention and was going to be accomplished properly.

I am looking at electrifying a shed and will call Hannay Electric when that project raises to the top of my five year plan.

Thomas Simonet


We had a issue with our garage outlets not working. Instead of coming out for a service charge, Bill did some troubleshooting with me over the phone that solved the problem free of charge! Thanks!

Matt Roberts

100 year old home is ready to Close!

Seller was selling a 100+ year home that didn’t have heat in the second level. It was required that there be heat installed. Bill to the rescue! He got it done without having to go through any walls. It passed inspection and we’re closing in a couple of days! Thank you Bill! You are my go-to electrician!! Your Navy bud, Connie

Connie Herzog

Glad I Called

I am selling my Condo and needed to change out the outlets in the kitchen and bathrooms to meet safety requirements. I emailed Bill after finding his name on the MN Veteran’s Owned Companies website. He was very quick to respond. He offered to come the next morning to do the work. He and his apprentice arrived in a timely manner and got right to work. The work was completed quickly and efficiently. I was very impressed and will keep his name for any future work I need done. Thank you to Bill and his apprentice.


Carol Bruemmer

Quality, professional, and fast

Amazing, professional and friendly. Took care of our wiring issue in less than ideal weather conditions. Fast response time, and takes time to answer questions and explain things.

Maria Falvey

Highly recommend

Bill came out on a 5 degree morning to install a garage heater. He had quoted me a price for the job. He installed the garage heater plus installed 2-8 ft LED lights in garage and also installed a new light switch. The total for the entire job was the same as the original quote. Speaks loudly to Bill’s integrity as lots of contractors would’ve added cost for each additional task. I would highly recommend Bill and team.

Dudley Simmons

Quick and Reliable

We had a burnt outlet we were worried about an electrical fire. Bill responded very quickly and fixed the problem right away. He gave us peace of mind in that we wouldn’t wake up to a fire. Thankful for putting our minds at ease!

Marlena Burau

Courteous and flexible

I had a self-inflicted electrical problem in my home and contacted Bill via Facebook. He responded within an hour (during a weekday evening). As soon as he understood that I was without lights in a couple of bathrooms, among other areas, he made time to come out and fix my mess the next day. I was appreciative of his flexibility and gentle approach to my failed DIY efforts. He took care of things quickly and explained a bit of the process along the way. Highly recommended!

Dan Kane

Mike Goodrich

Bill knows his stuff

Bill stopped in our office for information and noticed that our smoke detectors were out of date and possibly not working appropriately. He brought it to our attention and provided the solution. It’s nice to know he’s looking out for everyone’s safety and knows what to look for. Thanks Bill for your help and support in keeping us safe.

Mark Rossi

Great customer service

Bill returned our call while on vacation out of the country. It took very little time to explain our situation and he had the correct answer right away.
He provided troubleshooting tips over the phone and I was able to fix the problem in about 10 minutes. He then made a follow-up call to see if I needed any additional help. We really appreciate that he was willing to go out of his way to help us even though there was not going to be a service call.

Sherman Lovejoy

A true professional

We have had several electrical needs over the years (installing outdoor outlet and fixtures, repairing light fixtures, installing ceiling fans, and general repairs/updates). He also did some work related to my daughter’s inspection results when she sold her town home. Bill can troubleshoot quickly and accurately. He is a perfectionist and takes pride in his work. I trust him and am always pleased with the results of his work. I appreciate his friendly, fast service and highly recommend Bill for any electrical need.

Don and Linda Nelson


We were having trouble with the electrical coming to our house. We weren’t sure if it was an internal or external problem. Bill came, despite his busy schedule, and diagnosed the issue within a few minutes so we could get it taken care of safely. We were very grateful! Great service!!

Heather Johnson

Highly Recommend

I would highly recommend Hannay Electric. Very fair price. He was able to give me a price quote right over the phone, and gave me pointers to make sure I couldn’t solve the problem myself so I didn’t have to pay for service. Other companies wanted $80 to even give me any sort of a quote. He came and replaced 2 of my baseboard heaters. He made sure all was safe in the rooms as well. I was very pleased with his work. Very nice guy, and great electrician.

Kim Marino

Fast, efficient, knowledgeable!

I got Bill’s contact info from a local retailer when I purchased a new kitchen light fixture. He was able to come out the same day and do the install! He was so friendly and professional during the time he was at our house. He answered all my questions patiently and thoroughly…I learned a lot from him. And the best thing is, now my husband and I don’t have try to install the fixture ourselves!!

Elaine Horrmann

outstanding service

We have used Hannay Electric on several occasions. Bill is very prompt and knowledgeable when it comes to installation of any new service or a very complicated repair. We recommend Hannay Electric to anyone looking for a honest and reliable contractor

Jed Heinzen

Quick and Easy

.Selling our house and needed some electrical corrections fast. Realtor referred us to Bill as a fellow veteran. Bill called me back first thing next business day. Work was scheduled same week. I observed the work and feel I got a top rate job. Would recommend Bill to anyone who needs a quote for electrical work.

Chuk Hamilton

Great Job!

I was anxious about having an electrician coming to my house. I had sent Bill a photo of the lighting problem, the work was arranged for within the week! He brought out the new fixtures, and Got started right away and told me they would be done within the hour! He also offered some recommendations and I plan to have him come out again andI will also get a dimmer switch on my new lighting! Thanks, Bill!

Barbara Goranson

Excellent service with impressive knowledge!

I called Bill to fix a light fixture that was no longer working, and to install a new fixture elsewhere in the home. In the 75 minutes he was here, he did so much! Bill taught us about the differences between and benefits of LED bulbs, assessed our smoke detectors resulting in the installation of new ones that last approximately 10 years, changed several electrical outlet GFCIs’ (?), checked our fuse box and preformed a complete safety check throughout our house! We have been in the same home for 10 years and have never had an electrical assessment/ eval like that! Should have called him years ago! Thank you Bill!

Stacey LaCock

Hot tub Haven

Bill and his son had to dig a trench of about 300 feet and I think 18″ down with a junction box because of the distance. Bill got the hot tub hooked up and we won’t have to worry about tripping a fuse. He fixed a couple things that were not done correctly by previous “expert”. We love our new therapy tub, and we love the fact the electrical is safe and done according to code. Thanks guys!

Connie and Joe Herzog

Electrical Repair!

Father and son did excellent job in trouble shooting and finding electrical short! Also very reasonable rate for job done!

Andrew L Fraser


I called later in the day after 5pm and left message. Bill called me back and gave me some pointers on the issue I was having. And he was spot on was a simple fix. A gfi tripped in my garage and cause 2 out let’s in my lower lvl to just die. He talked me through what to look for and why it is that way. And said if that didn’t work called back and he’ll come look at it. But again his knowledge nailed it! Super pleased with honest input and willingness to help. Will definitely use again and would recommend him to anyone!

Shane McCarty

Bring this house to the up to code/standards

I Contacted Bill Hannay needing someone to help get my Mothers home up to code standards. This house had been re-modeled by quite possibly every back yard would be electrician my Father could find over the 60 years they owned it, and needed extensive updating work to include the entire circuit panel replaced from the old “glass type” fuses to circuit breakers. Bill came in when he said he would be there and completed the work right on schedule. The issues he found were to many to list but all were addressed and fixed to all code standards. Bill told me on the phone that this is the work he specializes in, the bring old houses and electrical problems up to standards and proper codes. That is everything he did. If this type of work is what you need and you don’t contact Bill Hannay I believe your making a huge mistake.

Dave J King

Answers right away

Bill and Hannay Electric is amazing!

We had an issue with our electrical service and an appliance that kept tripping one of the breakers. I called Bill and he was out right away to take a look. He fixed the problem right away. Bill is honest and it is clear he knows what he is doing. It’s nice to feel confident about someone’s skills and trustworthiness when you have them come into your home. I’ve had issues in the past with not getting calls back from other companies but you won’t find that with Hannay Electric. They’ll call you back and help you as soon as they can. Highly recommend!

Tiffany Flaten

Excellent and efficient service!

Bill arrived, and before I knew it had fixed the outlets that were not working. Bill also explained the issue clearly before he left. I would definitely recommend Hannay Electric.

Bill quickly returned my inquiry call and made an appointment to determine the issue with my loss of power in 2 rooms.They arrived on time and immediately went to work on diagnosing the issue. They returned the next morning and corrected all of the problems without unnecessary delays. Bill is a master at diagnosing and trouble shooting problems and making the necessary repairs quickly and correctly. His costs were far less than I had anticipated for such superior work. I would not only recommend him but will definitely use him for future needs. Very respectful, cleaned up after every task was performed. All around true American spirt, who takes pride in his craft.

I was very happy with the service provided. They recommended a solution for the specific job I requested and met estimate.
