5 of 5 starsReviewed 8 February 2016

We spent a weekend here, ski doing and tobogganing. The cabins had everything you would need and were very clean. We had a great weekend and can't wait to return! The best part about our stay were the owners who were so personable and accommodating. They went above and beyond by bringing soup and tums to our cabin when my boyfriend became sick with the flu. Couldn't ask for friendlier people! I would definitely recommend this resort!!!

Offering Residential and Commercial Electrical Services in Saskatoon and the surrounding area.  Age of Electric are Trusted Saskatoon Electricians 

Electrical company with famous namesake claims 'shockingly good' service


Growing up in Lanigan, Arlen Hall hung out and played music with a pair of brothers who went on to form Age of Electric, one of Saskatchewan’s most successful rock and roll bands. More than two decades later, Hall and his business partner Evan Demers decided to quit their contracting jobs to start their own electrical contracting company. Deciding what to call it was easy. 

“When we were coming up with the name, we threw a lot of different ideas around, but I kept on coming back to (Age of Electric), and everybody that I suggested that name to just loved it right away,” Hall said.

Founded in early 2014 — with the blessing of the former band members — Age of Electric is a residential, commercial and industrial electrical contracting firm that claims to provide “shockingly good” service. According to Hall, the “well-rounded shop” is the culmination of decades of experience. 

Hall said he started working as an electrician in 1995 after his girlfriend at the time told him that if he “didn’t quit playing music and get a job, she was going to move out.” Years later, he hired Demers to work at another electrical company. Then the pair decided to strike out on their own.

“We wanted to keep the good things that we had learned from more successful companies that we had been at … and then try not to do the things that we saw weren’t good from companies that weren’t run well,” Hall said with a laugh.

In  2016 Age of Electric moved into a new shop on First Avenue North. Hall attributes the company’s growth to its professionalism, which he said encompasses high-quality work, safety and branding.

“Really, what we want to do is provide an excellent service for a fair price. And one of the things I really like is when we help (people) who are really stuck … That’s the kind of things that make me feel good.” 

Hear the testimonial of another very happy client, Janet

"If you need an electrician in Saskatoon, I highly recommend Age of Electric. I've hired 3 or 4 others over the years and these guys are a cut above, taking extra care in installations so that typical problems that usually happen long after they leave are avoided (in my case, extra bracing in a bathroom fan that would typically start vibrating loose after a few years) is avoided. And just really good guys too." - Janice Braden, Saskatoon
