Welcome to my electrician’s blog

Hi, I’m Simon Portillo. I carry out domestic and commercial electrical installation and testing in the Cardiff, Penarth, and Dinas Powys areas of South Glamorgan, UK.

As you know, getting in contact with an electrician is not always easy! Because of this, I wrote an article on my website for a customer who had random rcd tripping on her property.

Whenever I replaced a consumer unit, I used to put a link to that article in the invoice – should they have an rcd trip out of hours.

That was the very first article I wrote on my Electrician’s website which went on to help thousands of readers every month.

Readers got in touch thanking me for helping them so I decided to document other electrician-related tasks to help with other areas and create this blog.

Tim followed my rcd tripping article and managed to get his power back on.
Sheena followed my rcd tripping article and got power restored.
