Best company! I called for an appointment and Eric arrived at my home the next day. He quickly found the issue that was causing so much trouble and fixed it promptly. Knowledgeable and skilled, I would not hesitate to call again for any work needed. I highly recommend Anthracite.
~ Rosemarie Turnbaugh

They showed up on time , were very professional, and also understood our vision, I believe they went above and beyond and did an excellent job, I not only will use them in the future I will refer them to anyone that needs that type of work done, we couldn’t be happier.
~ Matthew Fialkowski

Mike and his team are amazing. As noted in my prior review they are doing an incredible good job and are very professional. Reason for the second review is due to a problem in the middle of the night at my Mother in Law resulting in no power in the house. She depends on oxygen and therefore we needed this fixed asap. We called in the morning and explained the situation and while they were extremely busy, they arranged for it to be repaired the same day. It required a new breaker box and new line to be installed. We can’t thank them enough for taking care of this. We highly recommend them!
~ M. Walsh

I had lined up this company to install an outdoor electrical outlet, add a dining room overhead light, add can ceiling lights and a fan box to the tv room as well as change out existing outdoor spotlights. This crew did a phenomenal job over a couple of days. Hats off to Eric and Josh, who were the politest ever, everyone of course took safety precautions as they should. I appreciated the fact that these guys consulted with me on making decisions when necessary and just not doing something on their own. Jim and Mike run a good ship. I wouldn’t hesitate to call them again! Thanks guys!
~ Sandra K

James, Josh, and Mike are very professional. They answered all of our questions and gave great advice. They responded promptly to our calls/emails. Did several jobs including installing a bathroom fan and vent, installing outdoor outlets, replacing outdoor light switches, installed a ceiling fan, and retrofitted canister ceiling lights. All jobs were done proficiently and in a timely manner. We are having them come back again to install a security system, upgrade our entertainment center, and convert flood lights to LEDs. I would definitely recommend them and am so happy we found them!

Came in and tackled the problem after a quick briefing from me

~ T. Lawrence

We highly recommend Anthracite electric. They upgraded our service, installed new panel and hot tub installation. Everything was done perfect, timely and the team completing the work answered all our questions. Very professional and they made sure that everything was cleaned up at the end. Price was great and in line what we expected.
Really nothing to complain and we will definitely call them again for any electrical work.

~ M. Walsh

Anthracite Electric was FANTASTIC to deal with!! No nonsense estimate and billing…professional, pleasant, and reasonable pricing. I have a landscaping lighting project to do in the spring, and Anthracite Electric will definitely be doing that job. Highly recommend!

~ J. Bianchi

Unlike other electricians in the area, Anthracite are professionals that will call you back and show up when they say they will. Not only that, but they were able to diagnose my problem in the morning and then spend the day fixing my issues. The work is stellar, and the price was great! Highly recommend and will use again.

~ A. Pfeiffer

Anthracite Electric did the electric install for our new hot tub and they are outstanding! Quick to respond and schedule appointments and follow-up. Well-priced and professional!

~ R. Arreguin

I had Mike with Anthracite Electric put under cabinet lighting in my kitchen. I loved the way he responded quickly with a quote and I didn’t have to wait a long time for them to show up and do the work. When his crew came they were fast and professional by removing the old wires and adding the new. They also did a thorough job cleaning up. He also followed up to make sure I was satisfied which is great! I would use them again.

~ A. Lolli

We had the pleasure of meeting Mike and his crew through a general contractor that was doing a renovation for us. For the initial job, Ed did an incredible job of exceeding what we expected. The work was done beyond our satisfaction. Since then, Mike’s team has done two other jobs for us. Both were done completely and priced fairly. They left our house as clean as when they found it. There was no sign of having any work done. They were also very prompt on follow up and also helped educate us to getting the job done right. We are grateful that we found such an efficient and professional company. We would never consider using anyone else. You will be totally satisfied and thankful that you called Anthracite Electric.

~ J. DeBalso

I’m a first time home buyer and have never had to call an electrician until I found water coming out of my breaker box! I called and spoke to Mike on Friday morning and by Friday night he was there to check it out. He was so nice and knew immediately what the issue was. Emailed me the estimate on Tuesday and had his guy Ed there by 11am Wednesday morning. Ed was very nice and fast! Said it would take about and hour yet I don’t even think it was 45 minutes and he was done! The price was very reasonable and from what some of my contractor friends are saying was a steal! Will definitely be calling again for some other electrical work I will be wanting done soon. Highly recommend!! Thanks guys!! 😁😁😁

~ C. Shaw

After moving into our new house Anthracite electric was very flexible with me with putting a 220 line in . They did a fantastic job I asked had them put in a light at the last minute and it was up within the hour and everything look completely professional.

~ S. Seiler

Called Anthracite Electric to replace our deteriorated main power coming into the house and upgrade our service from 100 to 200 amp. Mike Shea was cordial and very helpful when he called us with a reasonable quote and setting up an appointment. Ed came and did the work efficiently without stopping and cleaned up after his job. We highly recommend this company, Mike and Ed for prompt, efficient and professional service.

~ Arlette Zupko

I recently contacted Mike at Anthracite Electric for a communication problem we had at our office. He was very quick to help us with a solution.We were extremely grateful to him for the quick response to our problem. We are now back up and running. We would like to refer him to anyone out there that needs Electrical work completed. Thank you once again Mike.

~ Louise Mekic, Bochon Appraisal Service

Had these guys out to run some Ethernet cable in two rooms. They came on time and were very nice. I ended up having them also run two new outlets in my basement. All the work was very neat and worked as intended. They will get my business again.

~ Shea Brandon

Anthracite Electric does excellent service. Mike Shea and his crew were very professional and easy to work with. I would highly recommend them!

~ Baldomero Ayala

Very kind, my cameras stopped working and they installed new cameras quick and hassle free!

~ Reyna Villanueva

While installing a new light fixture in my new to me older home I ran into an issue that I knew was just too complicated and feared a very expensive repair. Luckily my friends suggested I give Mike a call and he sent over Ed to take a look. Ed was prompt and did excellent work. He knew exactly what needed to be done without having to totally gut my existing electrical. Thanks again guys!

~ Kenny Moore

Great guys! Courteous, genuine, and extremely competent. Mike, Jim, and Eric installed 4 Nest Outdoor IQ cameras and 2 Nest Hello Doorbells on my brick house. These guys are true professionals and they did a neat job!
House had old intercom system but Mike was able to reconfigure it to make the doorbells work whiles still keeping the intercom system intact. Don’t know how he did it, but he got it working and I’m very pleased.

I’ll definitely be using Anthracite Electric services for future electrical work.

If you are looking for great competent guys who’ll do a neat job and not overcharge you, you’ve got to call Mike and his team.

~ Ato Kwamena

I’ve used Anthracite electric twice and both times, they were very professional and fast. The prices were cheap and the work was completed perfectly to what I was looking for I would highly recommend them.

~ Leo Mills

I had an electrician cancel, after calling around all day reached these guys and fit me into their schedule. It was a little more tricky than i expecte. They had to come back and even after coming back, hit me with a fair price on work. Definitely saving these electricians.

~ Mike Kacer

I worked with Anthracite install electric for a washer and dryer power install, basement and motion lighting and a full electrical panel replacement on a rental property I had recently purchased. They were very friendly and responsive and did a great job in a timely manner. I have saved their info for any future electrical needs I may have.

~ Howard Bregman

Selecting outdoor surveillance cameras can be a daunting task. Mike Shea simplified this process for us by meeting on site, determining our needs, and installing a budget-friendly system with great results! Mike was able to answer all of our questions and provide practical solutions when needed. On the day of installation, Mike met with us again to demonstrate how to use our new system and ensure that we would move forward with confidence. Mike is experienced, professional, and very easy to work with. He and his team provide excellent work and outstanding customer service. It was truly a pleasure to work with Mike, and we look forward to future projects.~ Dr. & Mrs. Edward Dzielak – Carbondale Professional Center

I had the pleasure to meet Mike Shea in 2013, honestly this meeting was the best thing that happened for me. Not only did I meet one of the best vendors I ever had the opportunity to meet and work with, I also made a friend. Mike Shea is all about the customers needs and will find way to meet their needs. Mike is most sincere, honest, genuine, professional and will go out of his way to help in anyway possible.

Linden Crest Apartments has had several jobs performed by Mike and his team. Mike stayed in constant contact with me throughout the progress of each job to ensure I was satisfied. Every job was completed to 100% perfection. Mike and his teams work ethics exceed most.

Mike, it’s always a pleasure working with you, looking forward to our many upcoming projects. In closing, I 100% recommend Anthracite Electric. Mike Shea is a top notch guy in my book!

~ Karen J Argenta – Linden Crest Apartments

Mike and his guys are truly top notch. They got the job done well beyond expectations. They added a number of cameras to a previous install and fixed up the wiring which the previous guy had done a very sloppy job at. Now we can actually tell which wires do what and will be able to troubleshoot or add more if we need to.

Mike is a real straight shooter who knows what he’s talking about and recommends what is best for each customer’s specific situation. This was our second project project which we went to Mike for and hopefully will not be our last.

~ Yehudah Fink – David Elliot Poultry Farm, Inc

I highly recommend Mike Shea and Anthracite Electric Inc. They did a wonderful job in recommending a video security system for our newly constructed workshop. They did beautiful work and they showed up when they said they would. Mike and his guys do great work and are very professional. Like I said, I recommend them highly.

~ Tony Torquato – Torquato Drilling Accessories

Mike, I wanted to take the time to extend a sincere thank you to you and your co-workers. As a business owner, I appreciate your professionalism, prompt service, and affordable pricing. Sometimes it can become difficult to secure reliable affordable work. I can honestly say it was a pleasure working with you, and I look forward to working with you on future projects. Thank You

~ James Saks – Design Print

Within a month of contracting Anthracite Electric to install 32 surveillance camera’s at my Dunmore location I was able to catch a employee stealing over $1000.00 worth of gasoline. I noticed an increase in my monthly fuel bill, used to fill our fleet of vehicles, I investigated and realised someone was using a fuel card from a truck that is rarely used thru the winter. I documented the mileage on the vehicle and parked it near a camera, then witnessed one of our employees taking the fuel card out of the vehicle and later driving his personal truck across the street to the gas station, filling his truck up and returning, also caught on one of the camera’s on the front of the store. After I pinpointed who was stealing the gas I took the times and dates from the fuel bill and reviewed them back on the DVR, each time showing the employee taking the card and returning it when done. I took all the events and burned them to a memory stick and called the local police who later picked up the employee. He admitted to the crime – thanks Mike & John I could not have done it without the help of the cameras.

~ Jerry Longo – Jerry’s For All Seasons

We were very satisfied with Mike’s professionalism and prompt service. He was there when he said he would be and the work was done as promised.

~ Kathy Kelly

In regards to looking for a contractor to work at your home or business. Mike Shea runs a top notch operation, very professional and correct. We are very very happy with his work!!

~ Chip Price – Price Construction

I have worked with Mike and his team on numerous projects for the past 8yrs. Quality work at a competitive price, and accountability for scheduling is why I will continue to use them on future projects.

~ James Stracka – Stracka Construction

Anthracite Electric installed cameras throughout our 120,000 square foot retail space in Pittston, PA. It’s a rare experience to work with capable, efficient, and friendly contractors like Mike and his team. Not only did they complete the work on time, under budget, and with better results than expected, they did it without interrupting any of our operations. Mike really listened to all of our needs and helped us find hardware to best match our needs and budget. They were a pleasure to have in the building, and their work is top notch. I’d recommend Anthracite Electric without reservation to anyone who needs their services.

~ Merchants Village

When I asked Anthracite Electric to point me in the right direction for wireless rear speakers, they did so, finding me the best product on the market for me.

~ Matt Artz

It is with great pleasure that I am able to make a few comments about Mike Shea and Anthracite Electric. As a Banker in the Scranton area for 40 years, I have come into contact with many people. It has been about eight years since I met Mike and started using him to perform work at my home. What I have found with him, is that the work performed is first class. He and his staff are very neat and the work performed has been done to my satisfaction. There have been times where I had an issue that was of concern to my wife and I. Mike has been very quick to return my call and respond to the issue. I could go on about how great it has been to work with Mike, but would just like to say, if you need electrical work performed, call Mike Shea. You won’t be sorry.

~ Dave Lencicki


Professional, quick & knowledgeable. I was looking for a company that would come in, discuss what I need, and get it done and that’s what they did. They were fun to work with and addressed any questions I had promptly. I look forward to working with them again.

~ Lynn Sandy

Michael and his staff are very knowledgeable, they do excellent work; they were reliable, creative and consistent.

~ Chris Falzett

Mike is a true professional and is extremely responsive during the entire project phase to ensure true turnkey projects. In addition, Michael takes the time to adequately answer all questions and ensure that his customers understand each step in the process.

~ Alexandra Soto

Mike is a very genuine, kind & honest man who takes pride in everything that he does.  He is a perfectionist; which rates #1 in my book because I am the same way & I always look for that rare quality in other people especially if it involves any type of work to be done at our home.  Mike is also very loyal to his clients which is another trait that I admire.  He has come to our home at the end of his long working day in order to assist us in solving issues with our television equipment due to problems with our local cable company.  He stayed and helped us until the issue was solved & he has done this quite a few times.  We can call him at anytime and know that we can depend on him to resolve any issue.  Mike is truly a breath of fresh air with his quick wit and professionalism and really cares about his customers.

Honestly, your home is your haven and you should accept nothing but the best from the contractors that you hire & we are very pleased to say that we have found that quality in Mike Shea.

We are truly grateful for all of the wonderful work that he did at our home and highly recommend him!
