Your Herrin Electrical Specialists

Grandpa Red

Herrin has always held a special place in our hearts. When Grandpa Red, pictured above, founded Starnes Electric in 1968 it was based out of Herrin. When Roy and Donna took on the business as Cole Electric in 1993, they operated out of Herrin. Finally, Jason and Shayna have continued to run the family business in the Herrin area since they took over in 2004.

Since the beginning our family has built relationships and connections with the people of Herrin based on our deep roots and love for our neighbors. We continue to provide the same quality service that Grandpa Red founded Starnes Electric with way back in ’68, because our ultimate goal is to provide Southern Illinoisans with comfort, safety, and security in their homes.
