Electrical Contractor vs Electrician

Electrical Contractor, Glenn Goodiel, Installing Residential pool circuit panel

I am an enigma; I am us. I describe myself as an electrician and electrical contractor.  But no,  I can not be both. According to the universally accepted authority on such things, Wikipedia, an electrician is an entirely different creature than an electrical contractor.

They say “An electrical contractor is different from an electrician; an electrician is an individual tradesman and an electrical contractor is a business person or company that employs electricians. Both usually hold licenses and insurances to properly and safely operate a business…” I feel like I meet both description, but Wikipedia will have none of that.

So, according to Wikipedia, I am one or the other. I can not be both. The fact that I am the owner of Goodiel Electric, LLC, a Jensen Beach electrical contracting company,  must then make me an electrical contractor. That seem reasonable to me, but not to other authorities. In fact, the search engine giant Google.com claims that the business, Goodiel Electric, LLC, can not categorize itself as an electrical contractor, but will allow it to categorize itself as an electrician.

They say “Categories describe what your business is, not what it does or what it sells.”  Their system will allow Goodiel Electric, LLC. to be categorized as “electrician” or “contractor”, but not as an “electrical contractor” Their system will not except “electrical contractor” as a business category. My solution to that was to list Goodiel Electric, LLC. as “electrician” and “contractor.” Google.com was perfectly happy with that, as was I.

The strange thing about Google’s obsession in this instance is that now a search on the phrase “Jensen Beach Electrical Contractor” produces a Google Places listing for Goodiel Electric, LLC.  I can live with the first page listing as a Jensen Beach electrical contractor, but their map technology definitely needs attention.  I live in Jensen Beach, but their map shows as an address West of interstate 95.  Unbelievable!
