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. We will continue to use the same phone number (828-963-4281) temporarily but in addition to that number our new number is (336-973-8500). Thanks so much for your patience as we make the transition to our new home! God bless & Happy Thanksgiving, Debbie & Quinn

Due to the current economic conditions, Appalachian Electric has had to make some changes.  Sad to say, but 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 30+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 828-963-4281 or email us at

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 have recently put up their new sign at their property in northwestern Wilkes County. When their property sells in Foscoe they plan to move up to the Wilkes property so they figured it was time to put up a sign there. As you come off the Blue Ridge Parkway just 3 tenths of a mile you will see the sign!

Again, their concentration will be in service work, lightning protection, etc... the smaller job 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.
