Christopher Williams

Chief Executive Officer

Christopher W. Williams, a third-generation electrician, has been a well-respected and well-sought Photovoltaic technician and Electrician in the South Suburburban and Chicagoland area since the early 2000s. Christopher started in the trade at a young age, trained by his father, Wendell Williams of Reliable Electric. He apprenticed with his father throughout his teenage years, learning priceless trade tricks. After his father's passing, he and his brothers established a successful family-operated electrical contracting business. This experience led him to further his education and join IBEW Union, allowing him to work on more significant projects and developments during the housing and commercial boom of the late 1990s.

In 2000, Christopher branched out independently, obtained his Electrical Licensed, and started Millennium Solar Electric, which became incorporated in 2010. Millennium Solar Electric Training Academy (MSETA) was founded in 2017 and took flight the following year under the FEIA Workforce Development Program. MSETA’s mission is to train low-income students, ex-offenders, minorities, current and former foster children, women, and veterans in solar photovoltaic (PV) systems for employment generated by the future energy jobs act FEIA.
