How much does an electrician charge in 2024?

Finding an electrician who is affordable, reliable, knowledgeable, punctual and all the other details isn't easy to come across. or is it...? We all know the stereotypes that comes with trades people. They either don't turn up, don't send the quote or leave foot prints on the carpets! That's where Nu Age changes the game.

The Rates

Rates for electricians depend on a number of factors.

  • Location

  • Size of the company

  • Time in business

  • Skill set & qualifications

You can always expect to pay a little more for a job in London than you can up north, simply because the cost of living increases.

Opting for a larger company over a one-person operation offers several advantages:

  1. Expertise and Specialization: Larger companies often have a team of specialists with diverse skills and experience. They can tackle a wide range of projects and offer expertise in various areas of electrical work.

  2. Reliability and Consistency: With a larger team, there's less risk of delays due to one person being unavailable. You can rely on the company to meet deadlines and deliver consistent quality of work.

  3. Insurance and Licensing: Established companies usually have proper insurance coverage and necessary licenses, providing you with added protection and peace of mind.

  4. Customer Support: Larger companies often have dedicated customer support teams to address any concerns or queries promptly. They prioritize customer satisfaction and are more likely to offer ongoing support even after the project is completed.

  5. Scale and Capacity: If you have a large-scale project or need work done on multiple properties, a larger company can handle the workload more efficiently due to their scale and capacity.

You can generally expect to pay anywhere between £40 to £90 per hour, and that might not include VAT.


When it comes to being an electrician, the learning is limitless. With new technologies coming out all the time, its vital to keep updated. With the increase in installations of EV chargers, battery solar panels & renewable energy, the diversity within the electrical industry is changing at a rapid rate. However, the basics still apply.

Although providing installations in the above, Nu Age still provides a range of essential services including electrical installations, repairs, and maintenance for residential properties. They handle tasks such as wiring installations, lighting fixtures, socket replacements, fuse box upgrades, appliance connections, safety inspections, and troubleshooting electrical issues to ensure the safety and functionality of your home's electrical system.


Almost everybody has a story of a bad experience with a trades person. Our advice to avoid disappointment is to choose a company with a large online profile. This would include multiple review platforms with good reviews all around, failing that, try asking for a recommendation from a friend of neighbor, who have had a first hand experience with the company. It's always worth paying a little more for peace of mind that your project is going to be done with the care and attention needed for a safe & sound installation.
