Appalachian Electric

Appalachian Electric Company
Since 1977

Appalachian Electric has moved BUT we are still serving the Ashe, Avery, Watauga, & Wilkes Counties. Thank God our Foscoe property has finally sold after 5+ years!!

Please be patient with us as we make changes to our website. Our phone number at the farm in Laurel Springs is 336-973-8500. Thank you so much for your patience as we made the transition to our home in Laurel Springs! God bless & Happy New Year, Debbie & Quinn

May 2020 be your best year ever!!

Some History:  Due to economic conditions, Appalachian Electric had to make some dramatic changes.  As of March 2011, we had to lay off our long time employees Junior & Jacob.  As a result of this downsizing, we will no longer be able to commit to large electrical projects. Instead, we will concentrate on smaller wiring endeavors, service work, lightning protection, and such as that. Quinn will do the majority of the electrical work himself unless Debbie, his wife, is needed to assist.

As always, we strive to keep a personal touch in our electrical business. We care about our clients and consider each one a friend. Feel free to call us if you have an electrical need or would just like to bounce an idea off Quinn for his electrical advice. Quinn has been in business for over 40+years so he has seen about every electrical problem you might imagine.  Let him help you resolve any electrical issues you may have. This philosophy is part of what keeps our clients referring us to others. In fact, a large portion of our business has been generated through word of mouth - a great testament to our work ethic and personal service.

So, now, look around your home, condo, or apartment. What can Appalachian Electric do to help you?  Call us at 336-973-8500 or email us at


Owners Quinn and Debbie Hineman with our past company mascot and pet Sami.  Unfortunately, we lost Sami in March of 2014.  We went through the next few months missing Sami very much and trying to fill the void that she left.... in August 2014, we gave in to our desire for a new addition to our family.  Dick & Jane came our way late summer 2014 and, even though it has been a challenge to have 2 dogs, rather than one, we are managing.  They both have their own little personalities and we are thankful for them every day.  

On one of our recent wiring jobs, Quinn was fortunate enough to have the assistance of Winston the pug! Winston is from Weston FL. Every time it was possible, Winston would sit right up close to Quinn like he was assisting him in the work he was doing! What a hoot!

New Sign

Quinn & Debbie's new sign in Laurel Springs right off the Blue Ridge Parkway in northwestern Wilkes County.  As you come off the Blue Ridge Parkway our place is just 3 tenths of a mile on the right -  you'll will see their sign!

Again, their concentration will be in service work, lightning protection, etc... we focus on the smaller jobs that most large contractors with employees just don't have time for....

Haylee Visits Florida

In December, our daughter Haylee flew down to Orlando, Florida to be in her first cousin’s wedding. She spent a week enjoying the company of Quinn’s parents, whom everyone calls “Nanny & Poppy”. She had a blast & was a beautiful bridesmaid!

Quinn & Debbie visit Derrick & Ana in Del Rio, TX

In early February, Quinn & Debbie flew down to Del Rio, TX to visit with Derrick & Ana. They visited the Alamo in San Antonio on Saturday then visited Lake Amistad on the line between the U.S. & Mexico before going Acuna, Mexico to shop on Sunday. On Monday, the 5th, they celebrated their marriage at the courthouse in Del Rio. What a fantastic trip and one that will never be forgotten!

A Family Visit

On the weekend of July 22nd, our son Daniel, his wife Joyce, and our four year old grandson Gabe came to visit us up at our farm in Glendale Springs, NC. While there, we visited Doughton Park on the Blue Ridge Parkway which is in the background of this picture.
