About Us

49er Electric was founded in Nevada City in 1973 by Ken Tadman. His son, Daron Tadman, is the current business owner and opened the Truckee-Lake Tahoe branch in 1990. The family owned and operated business will one day be passed onto the next generation.

The team has more than 30 years of industry experience, is Lutron certified and a member of the Contractors Association of Truckee Tahoe. They’ve earned several nominations for “Subcontractor of the Year” at the annual awards ceremony.

The small team is hands-on and works directly with homeowners, business owners and interior decorators to see projects to completion. 49er Electric has created long lasting relationships with local builders and architects over decades of jobs well done.

"Our family couldn't be happier with the work performed by 49er Electric on our newly build home. Daron and his crew expertly sourced, installed and tested our home generator (Generac 24kwH), automated Lutron shade system and various lighting controls throughout the home. 49er Electric turned our home into a "smart home" for our lighting and shade needs. Best of all, Daron's team was on time and on budget. All in all, everything went off without a hitch and this was one of the best experiences with a contractor I've ever had! I can't say enough about the solid work performed, high level of integrity displayed and customer service provided by 49er Electric, all performed during Covid-19 when supply chains were tight and business was booming, they still got the job done - very rare these days.
