Carlton Electric exists to power possibilities and enhance lives. We believe that who we are and who we are looking to hire can be summed up by our five core values:


It is our moral obligation to keep our co-workers and customers safe. From the job site to the office nothing comes before safety.


We admit and own our mistakes even if it hurts the bottom line. We keep our promises and treat others how we want to be treated. We look out for the best interest of our co-workers and our customers. We know good people make good businesses which make good communities.


We believe transparency and honesty breed trust. Trust is the foundation of a great relationship with our co-workers and our customers. We will never commit to something we cannot do.
