PROFITABLE, SUSTAINABLE BUSINESSES KEEP UP WITH THE TECHNOLOGY

Methane digesters, electric vehicle chargers, solar power, and other technology-forward projects are what we – as a local, family-owned electrician company – tend to talk about most. And it’s not because these are the only solutions we provide, and the only work we do. Actually, it’s far from that.

 

Fiske Electric supports electrical services across several industries, and covers everything from the most basic electrical construction and maintenance, all the way up to complex, technology-forward wiring and project management. Each service and division make up a very important part of our business.

 

So, why the focus on the latest, most exciting stuff?

 

For one, many of these “latest-and-greatest” type of projects are the most newsworthy. They’re full of not only new technology, but also require new ways of doing things – that we’re proud to say we can do. And, we didn’t achieve 40-plus successful and profitable years in business by focusing on past projects. A lot of what we did in our early years wouldn’t be able to support the volume of employees and level of expertise to which our company has grown.

 

We’ve made it our mission to not only keep up with, but to stay ahead of the technology. It’s one of the ways we can both serve our current customers and identify business growth opportunities. One of those opportunities in front of us right now is for electric vehicle chargers. 

 

Now, a focus on the best business opportunity, in our minds, does not erase or undermine other solutions and services. Although we’re about to dive head-first into supporting a massive influx of electric vehicles, we still recognize the need for fossil fuels.

 

But right now, legislation is supporting the accessibility and usability of electric vehicles. $623 million in grants is going out to support 7,500 new charge ports, and some of that has already been awarded to Colorado State University.

 

A BizWest article states, “Boulder County and Colorado State University will receive a combined $13.8 million in federal infrastructure funding to build electric vehicle charging stations. ‘Colorado State University will receive $8.9 million to build three public hydrogen fueling stations near CSU campuses in Fort Collins, Denver and Pueblo. Boulder County will receive $4.9 million to advance the community’s transition to zero-emission transportation by installing more than 100 EV chargers in low and moderated low-income neighborhoods, rural areas and high-density neighborhoods.’”

 

As an electrician, this presents a huge opportunity for our business. Getting federal grants in place presents one set of challenges, but putting the chargers in the ground is an entirely new group of hurdles to cross. Because we’ve already focused many of our efforts on supporting new technology, we’re ready to support this wave.
