Company History

In 2002 Palmetto Residential Electric opened our doors in Charleston, South Carolina and quickly became one of the leading electrical contractors to some of the biggest- and best-known names in the residential home builder market.

Since our inception we have experienced a steady controlled growth adding branch locations in Myrtle Beach and Columbia. We now serve both the residential and commercial markets in South Carolina, North Carolina and Georgia.

Our clients run the gamut from a single homeowner needing whole home surge protection, a small custom builder, a nationally-known tract builder, or a multi-unit apartment dwelling for college student housing.

We treat all our clients with the same courtesy, respect and appreciation that all customers deserve.

Patrick Edwards, CEO

Edward's Family Palmetto Residential Electric

Patrick Edwards is a native of Charleston, South Carolina, where he now resides with his wife, Mischell (who owns Palmetto Residential Electric) and children, Christian and Pressley. He began his career in the electrical business at the ground floor level and served as an electrician’s helper from 1988 through 1991.

He became a full-fledged electrician in 1991 and spent the next seven years in that capacity until accepting the position of manager with a well known electrical contractor in 1998, a position he held until taking the leap to form his own company in 2002.

Patrick built his business the old-fashioned way. He labored pulling wire during the day, made his sales calls during short work breaks and in the evening did all the bookwork that keeps a company going. He has come a long way since accepting that job as an electrician’s helper back in 1988.

Patrick currently holds master electrician licenses in North and South Carolina, Georgia and Tennessee as well as alarm licenses in both the Carolinas. He brings 20 years of experience with him on every project he tackles.
