About Coastline Electric

Your Santa Cruz County Electrician,  Coastline Electric has been family owned and locally operated since 1999.  Owner, Chris Neill, began his electrical career in Southern California over 20 years ago.  A move to Santa Cruz County in 1993 led to a residential focus within the trade.  While working for local contractors, Chris expanded his electrical and business knowledge, but wanted to have more input in the design and over-view of projects. Chris passed his Electrical Contractors’ exam in 1999 and immediately broke-out on his own forming what is now Coastline Electric, Incorporated.


Chris works with General Contractors and Homeowners, priding himself on exemplary customer service and quality craftsmanship.  His dedication to his clients and willingness to go the extra mile has earned him an excellent reputation within the community.

Coastline Electric, Inc. employs several full-time employees who are dedicated to quality electrical workmanship.

Chris and his crew are professional, punctual & experienced. This is the second time I have had Chris do electrical repairs and trouble shoot some problems. Great to work with, as he gave me suggestions and alternatives to resolve the issues we had, suggested the best types of fixtures we would need for replacements and answered any questions I had about the work he was doing. Installed 3 new motion sensor duel floods, repaired one fixture, added another fixture, removed old conduit no longer needed, replaced three switches with new ones and got the extra supplies he needed all in one day. Definitely the company you want doing your electrical work.
