About Us

Starting out? Middle of the journey? Golden years?

No matter your age or place in life, we know and understand your electrical needs. Our family has been designing and installing, repairing and replacing, electrical systems for nearly 50 years.

Founded by Joe Popiolek in 1971, Popiolek Electric has grown with the community in Libertyville, Illinois. Joe and his wife lived and worked and raised their family here and have now passed the business on to their son Mike.

Join us for the next 50 years as we continue to serve the families and businesses of the northern suburbs of Chicago.

Our Story

The green and yellow truck that everyone knew!

Joe Popiolek liked the colors on the Chicago and Northwestern Railroad cars and adopted these for his own trucks, reversing the color scheme, with the yellow on top and green on the bottom. The colors, and Joe’s trucks, carried with them the assurance of quality, affordability and a job done right. Though the colors of our truck changed, the same reputation of quality and service rolls up to your door.
