Resistance Electrical


Covering Brighton, Hove, Portslade, Peacehaven and all surrounding areas we specialise in all aspects of domestic electrical work.

We focus on great communication, reliability and excellent workmanship to help us stand out from the crowd.

As a smaller company, our business is built on our reputation and happy customers returning to us and spreading the word to friends and family are absolutely vital to us. 

You can read some of our customer reviews below or many more on our check a trade page.


We are members of the electrical governing body NAPIT which means we have our insurances, qualifications and standard of work checked regularly to make sure everything is up to date and that we are working to the highest standards and latest regulations. This gives you all the assurances and fallbacks you would expect from a big company whilst benefiting from the personal service you can only get from a small one.

We are a small but growing team of  5: Tom, Edvin, Harry, Sebastian and Tasha

I (Tom Stephens) am the founder of the company and have been working in the electrical industry for over half my life since starting my apprenticeship at the age of 17 back in 2001. 

Since qualifying, I worked mainly as a self-employed subcontractor for many years whilst doing bits and pieces of private work. In 2016 I decided the time was right to push forward and get more of my own jobs so formed Resistance Electrical. Since then the company has grown steadily and I’ve never looked back.

Even after all this time I have a great passion for my work, truth be told I’m a bit of an electrical nerd! I enjoy keeping up-to-date with the latest innovations and regulations which also ensures I can offer my customers the most cutting edge products and services. 

Edvin has been working with me since 2016 and was trained by me directly. He has been there since Resistance Electrical was formed and I couldn’t have done it without his help and support. 

Harry joined us as a very shy 17 year old straight out of school back in 2018 and has taken to the job like a duck to water, he passed his final exams in summer 2021 and has grown into being a valuable member of the team and a very good Electrician.

Sebastian is the newest recruit and after doing well during a few months of casual work with us has now started his apprenticeship officially in September 2021 and is on the path to learning the trade.

I genuinely couldn’t hope for a better couple of guys to be working with, they both have my full trust and as they have been along for the ride whilst the business grew they both care about the company and have never let me down.  Having trained them in house I know they work to the same standards I do and share the same values around workmanship and customer service.  


We cover pretty much all areas of domestic electrical work. We are happy to help with all aspects of your job from design right through to the installation, testing and signing off the work. We also offer inspection, testing and certification on existing older installations. 

Whether you need a single socket replacing or full rewire of your property you can rest assured that all work will be done with care, to the highest standards and in compliance with all the latest building and electrical regulations.
