SRP Electric TeamSRP Electric’s team combines a diverse background and years of experience with green solutions and workmanship in order to deliver prompt, efficient and professional service to its clients.

SRP Electric is Central Ontario’s choice for electrical contracting with over 20 years of exceptional customer service and has partnered with Sun Country Highway. This partnership aims to facilitate, and rapidly accelerate the adoption of electric vehicles and lower carbon emissions in the transportation sector here in Peterborough. This partnership also brings with it competitively priced advanced technology products to help drive sustainable revenues for local businesses.

Local Businesses in the Peterborough and the Kawartha Lake areas looking to embrace the green initiatives sweeping Ontario today are invited to get on board. We are ready and rolling out programs to begin helping local businesses generate clients, and give their business a ‘green’ image at the same time. The number of electric vehicle owners in Ontario is rapidly growing and we have joined Sun Country’s goal to put over 1,000 chargers on-line by the end of this year.

How long does an installation take?

The average electric vehicle charger requires roughly 4 hours to install.

We make the most effective decisions that help our customers:

Because charging costs so little, we have decided to focus on the fast Level II – 90Amp chargers that work best at hotels, malls, coffee shops, dealerships and various other places where people tend to stop for ½ hr or more and many of these places may offer the EV charging for FREE.

Many treat EV charging like FREE WiFi. They want your business, so they will give you free EV charging! EV owners tend to be above income earners, are well educated and loyal customers – thus a perfect demographic to cater too!

Aren’t most companies selling 30-40Amp chargers? So why are we focusing more on the 90Amp chargers?

To ‘future-proof’ our network! Our partnership with Sun Country Highway which is the only company offering high speed Level II charging means faster charging and lower time spent on a single charging station  in Peterborough and surroundings. Also, our vision is that more and more cars inevitably will come equipped with faster battery – energy acceptance rates (like the Teslas and the forthcoming VTrux and Toyota Rav 4), we can help reduce the charging bottleneck, and get people on their way faster. By the way, there are currently 9 EV models in the marketplace that you or I could go out and purchase today and within 12-16 months that number will mushroom to over two dozen – most or all with these with new faster battery energy acceptance rates.

So that’s all well and good that you can save a lot of money by driving an EV and everybody knows EVs are great for the planet, but here is what is even cooler!

Did you know that 80-90% of EV charging is actually done at home or at work! So if you buy an EV next week, you will want to hire an electrician to install a charger at your home and maybe at your place of work as well. This means jobs for local electricians in Peterborough and the Kawarthas — creating a small economic infrastructure stimulus project!
