PROFILE: Gary Cole & Avon Lake Electric

The founder of Avon Lake Electric (previously known in the local Greater Cleveland Metropolitan Area as Blue Sky Energy Systems), Gary Cole, is a State Licensed Electrical Contractor and began his career in the electrical field in 1988.

He is committed to promoting the cost effective, sustainable benefits of healthy, energy efficient green buildings and homes.


  • State Electrical License #16048
  • Electronics – 2 year certificate from Hickok Technical School
  • Solar Electric – PV (photovoltaic) advanced design and installation course from Midwest Renewable Energy Association


Enviro Beginnings – When contacted by an environmental group advocating utility scale wind power in 1997, Gary began his transition into a complete mind set of advocacy of sustainable living practices. The great minds involved in Green Energy Ohio (then SEED Ohio) were very influential in raising his awareness of the best known science assessments of the impacts of current human activity on the earth’s finite energy resources. The focus of this group was on the problems associated with energy production and the solutions offered through renewable energy.

Green Building Enters the Scene

In 2002, Gary “re-energized” his work in standard electrical contracting with the intent of venturing into the solar PV market as it emerged. Soon after that he discovered the “Green Building Movement” thru Sadhu Johnston and his Cleveland Green Building Coalition. The marketability of energy efficiency and other aspects associated with “green building” became a very attractive avenue for Gary to pursue. The focus at that time shifted to that endeavor, of which solar electric systems are just one component.

In 2018, Gary decided to re-brand his company, and a key part of this evolution was to update the name of the company to AVON LAKE ELECTRIC.  Same owner, same high quality of services, same competitive prices, same honesty/ethics – only the name changed so that past, present and future customers would instantly know (just by the company name) that ALE = Gary Cole and he equals Experienced Reliable Honest LOCAL CHARLOTTE AREA ELECTRICIAN.
