About Berwick Electric Co.

Berwick Electric Co. was born in 1921, when local business owner J. Douglas Berwick observed that the existing gas lines were of little use for the latest technology of the day - radios, phonographs, washing machines, ranges and more. When he made the leap from gas to electric in both his home and business, Berwick inspired friends to do the same. After receiving his Electric Contractor License Number 11 from the State of Colorado, Berwick started a company that has since serviced the Pikes Peak region with excellent customer service, integrity and cutting-edge technology.

Since its humble beginnings, the Colorado Springs-based electric company has expanded to serve both the local community and out-of-state projects, with services that include residential, commercial and industrial service and construction, power quality and data communications services.

Berwick Electric Co. also prioritizes community involvement by setting a positive example of corporate and social responsibility. To help make Colorado Springs a better place to live and visit, Berwick Electric Co. regularly supports various non-profits and local causes, and was awarded the 2012 Outstanding Corporate Philanthropic Program Award by Partners in Philanthropy.
