Ring Electric owner Bryan Verhulp looks back on 15 years of serving the Ottawa area at the head of his family-owned business with gratitude.
Even though his passion for his company is obvious to his clients today (earning Ring Electric HomeStar’s “Best of” award for the past six years) Bryan didn’t think he would one day own his own electrical business when he joined the Royal Canadian Navy as an electrician in 1981.
Ottawa’s Rewiring Experts
Adding on to your Ottawa home, remodeling a kitchen, or finishing your basement can often involve tying into electrical circuits – not a straightforward project. The age of the home and the existing wiring will determine if additional wiring can be mixed with the old or if new circuits will be required. This can lead to potentially dangerous wiring if work is not completed by a Licensed Electrical Contractor and may even affect your Home Insurance Policy should there be a problem.
In fact, the Electrical Code is amended every three months and unqualified contractors, handymen, or homeowners will usually not be aware of the changes. We specialize in making your renovation ideas a reality, safely and to Electrical Code.
Light Commercial Electrical Renovations
We carry out light commercial wiring for office fit-ups, stores and restaurants up to 10,000 sq. ft. in Ottawa.

We install car charging stations!
An electric vehicle (EV) is any vehicle that is partially or entirely powered by electricity and plugs in to recharge. Ottawa has only a handful of charging stations throughout the city, therefore 95% of electric car charging is done at home. All electric cars have an “onboard charger” in the car itself, though simply plugging into the wall wont charge your car very fast – approx. 4 miles of charge or driving range in one hour of charging. If you want to charge faster, you probably want a home “electric vehicle service equipment” aka (EVSE).
