With more than 24 years of experience as an electrician, Armando Rivera started his own business after his former employer laid off staff during the COVID-19 pandemic. Arc Electric + Lighting opened a new office Jan. 1 at 18512 Cypress Rosehill Road, Cypress.

The family's business started out of their garage in May 2020 offering electrical and lighting services in residential and commercial settings. Rivera employs several electricians who were also laid off due to the pandemic, and his wife, Tina, recently left her executive position in the multifamily industry to support Arc Electric + Lighting full time.


Services include lighting consultations, house wiring, electrical upgrades, energy efficiency projects, dimming, appliance hookups, inspections, troubleshooting and repair, among other projects. 281-909-4299. www.arcelectricandlighting.com
