The Patriot Electric Experience
Patriot Electric is committed to the quality of our services. We believe in being able to always provide our clients with the highest standard of service, in terms of reliability, efficiency, safety, and skill. This means we are always refining, upgrading, and checking, whether that’s through meeting compliance standards or attending code upgrade classes provided by Technical Safety BC or other industry-recognized learning providers.
We also believe in working with our clients, not just in providing a valuable service, but in being an integral part of the project management and construction processes. This makes our clients’ jobs easier, with ease of communication and a seamless process throughout. It also means problems get solved quicker and identified earlier.
We’re able to use our expertise and experience to see things before they become an issue and provide effective solutions. This is the approach that has earned us the respect and admiration of some of Vancouver Island’s most reputable builders and designers.
This quality of service and commitment is underpinned by our commitment to innovation — something that sets us apart from our competitors. We mix the expertise of our founder David Moss with the new practices and skills of our co-op EIT students to create a unique mix of knowledge and expertise across a number of areas. Something that results in being able to provide cutting-edge services like our Smart Home Automation installations.

Meet the Owner
With a whole lifetime’s worth of experience in the industry, you’d be hard pressed to find anyone who knows more about electrical contracting than David Moss. And a keen business sense practically runs in his family — as the son of a successful mechanical contractor with his own plumbing and mechanical company, and the younger brother of two successful entrepreneurs. It is this combined business and practical knowledge that has seen his company become such an overwhelming success.
Patriot Electric was founded on the principle of delivering innovative and reliable electrical contracting services throughout Victoria and Vancouver Island. Something that they have delivered consistently on since their incorporation.
Dave also believes Patriot Electric has a key role to play in providing opportunities and shaping the future of the industry. This the ethos behind Patriot Electric’s highly successful co-op and apprenticeship programs. It’s also why Dave himself has been a member of the Camosun College Advisory Apprenticeship Board since 2001.
It’s not only his business success that drives him — it’s the joy of a richly rewarding personal life. David has been fortunate enough to have been with his wife since they were high school sweethearts, and they have been blessed with three wonderful daughters and five wonderful grandchildren.
