    quote Harry Cleary:

    What context are you using it in James? If it’s a business name probably Electric’s, as it belongs to somebody…….Cleary Electric’s. ‘Electrics’ if you wish to say something like…… ‘The electrics were installed by….’

    Harry the oposrophe goes on the owner of the item not the other way round.

    Harry’s electrics
    But if the the electric’s circuit would be correct

    An apostophe only has two uses to denote ownership or a missing letter,
