Mason North

Mason is our fearless leader Master Electrician, with over 15 years of experience he has an endless wealth of knowledge and acts as the true electrical power house of our company. Mason was first introduced to his career path when he proudly served as Electrician’s Mate in the United States Coast Guard. After his time as “Coastie” in Minnesota he moved to Washington DC where he continued his experience in the trade. In 2008, during his apprenticeship, Mason won the regional ABC Craft Championship semi-finals in Virginia and went on to represent Virginia at the National Craft Championship finals in Hawaii. When Mason isn’t devoting his time to the business he loves hiking, canoing, and camping with his family.

Kara North

Before co-owning Volta Electric, Kara honed her organization and communication skills as a meetings/events manager for non-profit associations in DC. Kara loyally serves the Volta family by assisting with customer service, scheduling, estimating and invoicing. When she’s not lovingly devoted to the company she is devoted to Lucy, Mason and Kara’s 4 year old daughter (and apple of Volta’s eye).


Matt Persekian Matt is a lead electrician who has received reviews from customers as being “amazing”, “friendly”, and “awesome”. Matt is particularly skilled at panel upgrades, recessed lighting layouts and troubleshooting (service calls). Matt will always show up with a smile and it may be hard to resist the temptation to sit and chat with him for a while! Outside of work Matt likes to be out on the Potomac, out on a beach, or in on a couch.
