About Us

ARC Electric Company is a Christian based, family owned and locally operated electrical contracting business. In the Spring of 1977 Larry Harrill founded ARC Electric Company; his primary focus at that time was residential electrical service. Larry had strong background in large commercial electrical service, so it was only a short time before ARC Electric Company began to expand. Currently, residential and commercial electrical service are both strengths of our company.
Larry’s son, Chris Harrill, joined the company in 1992 and together they worked to strengthen the solid reputation that ARC Electric Company had built in the Charlotte and surrounding areas. Ultimately, Chris took over running the company, while Larry became a consultant. In 2012, Larry decided to retire from ARC Electric Company, but we still get weekly visits from him.
In 2013, we brought CurrentSAFE® Electrical Hazard Detection testing to North Carolina and upper South Carolina homeowners. As a company we have always been concerned about electrical hazards within homes; with CurrentSAFE we have the technology and trained electricians that can uncover potential hazards before they endanger you and your family.
Many do not realize, but we have several of employees that have been with the company for over 15 years. In December of 2016 one of our lead commercial technicians was recognized for his 30 years of service by Chris Harrill at our annual Christmas breakfast!
