The main breaker in our house had been randomly tripping with the power fluctuating daily. After multiple failed attempts at trying to figure it out on our own we decided it was time for an electrician. I called several electrical companies who claimed service 24hrs, Kaycee with Arco Electric was the only one who answered. He came out the same day and was able to figure out the problem within minutes. He didn't have the part needed on hand but was back out the very next morning with what needed replaced. While he was taking things apart, he found a few other issues that could have caused a fire as well so he was able to get those taken care of as well. He was absolutely fantastic to work with, was done in no time and considering the amount of repair needed, his services were extremely affordable. Fantastic customer service from a gentleman named Carl when it came time to pay the bill, we even got a bit of a laugh in. Thanks Guys!

I needed a quick replacement of my main breaker in the dead of a Rexburg Idaho winter (sub-zero temps). My house had no power, and consequently had no heat, couldn't cook, couldn't do laundry. It was cold and miserable. Supply chain problems made it difficult to get a switch with the right amps. Arco called around, secured the part about 90 miles away, and quickly installed it. They are fantastic. My go-to service.

I highly recommend Arco Electric. We needed some electrical upgrades to our bakery which is in an old building. We were using extension cords to keep everything running and it still wasn’t enough to avoid trouble. Arco Electric came in and in a day had everything working well with new circuits everywhere we needed them. They made sure everything we needed done was addressed before leaving and wanted honest feedback about our satisfaction after the service.

John with Arco Electric is absolutely incredible to work with. We had four electricians out over the course of a week working on different projects, and not only was John the most responsive, he was by far the most professional, able to troubleshoot unusual problems, and the fastest at his work. Could not recommend more highly!

Want to update the lighting in your home or commercial property? Proper lighting allows you to have the look you want; providing functional as well as aesthetic options for your space. If you aren’t sure exactly what type of work is needed, we can help. While we are happy to bring your ideas to life, we can also check out your existing space and make recommendations for the ideal lighting for your situation.


Electricians are the professionals you want on hand when you are ready to install your security system. A qualified electrician ensures that all components of the security system work together to provide the security you need to feel safe in your home. Security for business is becoming essential for employee and customer safety. Whether you want door and window entry systems, CCTV (Closed-circuit television), or a combination of features — an electrician can help.


In today’s technology-centered homes and office spaces, you may run up against the limits of the electrical system that was installed in the initial building. Overloading the system is dangerous and rarely works for long. Save yourself the aggravation and potential hazards by having your electrical systems upgraded.

A qualified electrician, as you’ll find at Arco Electric, can upgrade your switchboard, making sure you have the electricity you need to operate.


Baseboard heating was a significantly more popular home heating method in previous decades. Several homes still have and use them as a primary heating method. Other properties will use baseboard heating as a way to control the temperature in only particular portions of the home. As with basically any portion of your home, your baseboard heating systems will need to be repaired and/or periodically replaced.


The main breaker also provides the means of shutting off power to the entire house if you need to do some major work on the system. Smaller, branch circuit breakers are used to control the flow of electricity to certain portions of the home. The breakers serve as a safety precaution if the amount of electricity being demanded becomes too great. If the breakers become faulty it could cause an irregular flow of electricity. Bad breakers put your home or property at risk in a number of ways. Our team regularly replaces, upgrades or installs panels and circuit breakers.



Emergency preparedness is on people’s minds more and more. This could be due to the rising number of natural disasters, or the recent global pandemic. One of the ways to be prepared for an emergency situation is to have a backup electrical source, also known as a standby generator. Whatever your reason for wanting to be more prepared, a generator is a huge relief if the power does go out. 

If you are looking to install an electric generator for backup power in your home or business, our team of certified technicians can do the job. Our professionals have the needed knowledge and training to make sure everything is installed safely and according to warranty guidelines. Having a generator installed properly the first time can prevent a slew of costly issues in the future. 

Arco Electric has been providing these services, including generator installation, in Idaho Falls, Idaho for years.  We have installed hundreds of home and commercial generators in businesses, homes, and schools, so you can feel confident trusting us to handle all of your power generator needs.


Solar energy offers many benefits for those who invest in this green technology in the Idaho Falls area. Solar panels are one of the easiest and most practical ways to put the power of the sun to work in generating electricity for yourself or for the grid. Either way, Arco Electric can provide the expertise you need to install solar panels suited for your property and your budget requirements. We deliver solar solutions for commercial and residential properties in Idaho Falls and all the surrounding communities.

Arco Electric provides the highest quality of electric work in Southeast Idaho. We install electric vehicle charging stations for home and business owners throughout Idaho Falls and the surrounding area. Arco Electric knows that electric vehicles are a large part of the future not just for big cities anymore, but even for Idaho Falls.

Our goal is to make owning an electric vehicle in this area an easier, more convenient task through better access to charging stations. We also recognize the impact on the environment as we decrease emissions through electric vehicles.

Idahoans are seeing electric cars on the road more and more often. There is no doubt that the world is transitioning to this new way of transportation. Many car manufacturers are saying that by the year 2030 more than half of the cars, trucks, and SUVs offered and sold will be fully electric.
A charging station is a conversion of power. The car’s battery pack has to be charged and the battery can only accept charge in a certain format. This is the purpose of a charging station.

If you already own an electric vehicle or are considering buying one, a charging station is essential. If you are a business owner, charging stations might be a good way to increase business and may soon become standard. Whether you are looking for commercial or residential installation, the professionals at Arco Electric are qualified and anxious to help you with your electric car charging station.
