BCE did a great job completing over thirty exterior lighting retrofits throughout my portfolio. My new lights not only look great but immediately have begun producing cost savings in our energy usage. The entire process was great from beginning to end with BCE assisting in all aspects from lighting selections, cost analysis, assisting with the rebate paperwork and requirements. Kudos to the BCE team and thanks for making this project run so smoothly!

I would like to thank BCE for all the help with getting 14 exterior lighting retrofits completed within my portfolio this year! Although the process was long and very involved, it went as smoothly as one could go, and BCE was there with me every step of the way. Once we decided to go for it in October last year, BCE was instrumental in providing the detailed calculation sheets, fixture spec sheets and proposals very quickly, and when it became clear that there was an even better product on the market that would essentially double our warranty periods, BCE was extremely helpful in getting those changes made before ordering. In addition, I sincerely appreciate all the time BCE took in working so closely with both SMUD and PG&E on my behalf, even coming down to our office to meet directly with SMUD to make sure the best rebate program was selected and we were all on the same page. BCE’s input was invaluable!!

Thank you for everything and I look forward to working with you again on the next 8 retrofits planned for 2015!

“BCE has done work for us for many years. They have the man power and expertise to complete our large projects on time and with quality work. Our smaller projects are not over looked but are treated the same way. We have been very successful on every project they have worked with us in completing. Their bids are complete, accurate and priced right. They help solve problems and are not a change order subcontractor.”

Mr. Sprinkler

“We have been working alongside BCE for more than 20 years and have first-hand why they are so successful. Their commitment to quality and service set the standard for the industry. When it came time to build our building in 2004 we knew who to call. Since then Fred and his team have designed, installed and serviced our electrical needs with the expertise we’ve grown to expect. Whether routine maintenance, wiring a new plasma cutter or managing our expansion BCE has the qualities we count on to get the work designed, permitted, installed and completed on budget and on schedule. There are very few companies we are comfortable recommending BCE is on the top of that very short list.”

Placer Union High School District

“Confidence, Competence and Trust describe Fred Barnum and his company – Barnum and Celillo Electric. Recently, BCE successfully completed a mid football/soccer season field lighting project for Placer Union High School District in Auburn, CA. For this high profile, tight schedule, fixed budget project; on-time successful completion was the only option. Fred said it would be done…and it was! Simply put, “I know Fred. He and his firm are the only ones I trusted to deliver this project”. Beyond the quality of their construction, BCE’s significant financial and leadership contributions are the primary reason this community funded project is a success. “Yes”, Fred Barnum is a respected and successful leader, but as demonstrated on this project, BCE’s strength extends well beyond Fred Barnum and is rooted in the individuals that are the BCE team, they are about doing the job right for the right reasons.”
