Triangle Electric has always opted to side with quality over quantity. With the increase in the scale of work in the Bakken, Triangle Electric has taken measures to ensure a quality product is delivered to the customer upon commissioning of a project. Currently, Triangle has 2 full time Quality Control employees who are responsible to uphold a high quality installation standard that our customers have come to expect from Triangle Electric. These employees have ND masters’ licenses and travel from project to project completing site inspection reports and coaching our electricians on specific tasks.
