About Us



In 1994 Brent Washburn earned an Associate’s degree in Electrical Power and Instrumentation from Eastern Maine Technical College (now EMCC). Brent went on to travel to Alaska where he began his electrical trade career with a helper’s license, working in commercial and industrial settings. After a year, he traveled back home to Maine and began work as an electrical millwright. In 1996, Brent married and began his family. By 2002 Brent had not only been working as a Journeyman Electrician for several years but had earned his Master Electrician’s license and began his own electrical business in Dover-Foxcroft, Maine.


With the full support of his ever growing family, Brent has gone on to serve the people of Maine, with special attention to those in his own community of the greater Dover-Foxcroft area. While living in a small community, it is a blessing to be able to bump into your customers wherever you go, knowing you have provided them with the quality electrical service they were looking for.


Serving as an electrician to the Central & Northern Maine areas, has also given Brent the opportunity to show his children what it means to work hard with integrity, and to be proud of what you accomplish and who you help while doing it. Although all of his six children are involved in some way (both great and small) in the family electrical business, it is his oldest son, Gabe, who has been his shadow all these years, learning the electrical trade, not only from textbooks and courses, but also by putting that learning into action, and helping to meet the residential, commercial, and industrial electrical needs of our community.


In 2015, we at B. Washburn Electric, Inc. expanded our electrical services to include the sales and installation of both generators and heat pumps. And our growing team also includes other licensed electricians and helpers who help make B. Washburn Electric, Inc. a business that you can feel confident will take care of all your electrical needs. So, call us for your design build construction, home remodeling and rewires, service hook-ups, generator and heat pump installs, commercial and industrial services, energy efficiency lighting retro-fits, solar installations, and 24-hour emergency service.
