Nearly every building in Houston requires electrical power, communications, lighting, and control systems. These systems power the lights, appliances, and equipment that make our lives easier and more comfortable. Electricians who work in the construction sector install, operate, maintain, and repair these systems in residential buildings, commercial businesses, and industrial plants. They are responsible for placing wiring, installing lighting, running electric tests, conducting inspections, and repairing generators.
