Serving the Greater Portland Metro and the Surrounding Communities!

About Us

Beaver Electric originally started as North Valley Electric in 2010. Owners Ron Kirsch and Brad Benson dreamed of a company that specialized in commercial and industrial construction services. In 2016, thanks to the help of Louvre Media, we transitioned our company into what we now know as Beaver Electric. As the company grew, we began to shift our services, focusing away from commercial and industrial construction and instead on residential services.

At Beaver Electric, serving our community is what is most important to us. We cater to the needs of our fellow neighbors and residents, dedicated to making their lives easier. Thanks to our founder’s 45 years of experience in the electrical field, we’re well-suited for any job that comes our way!

How The Industry Has Changed

Electricity itself hasn’t changed a whole lot throughout the years, we still install receptacles, lights, and power-up equipment. However, safety has changed how electricity is used. Ground Fault Interrupters and Fire Guard Breakers (Arc Fault) have made electricity more useful.

The advancement in LED has also led to higher energy efficiency and less expensive maintenance. The advancement of solar is the next big level of growth in the future. Electric vehicles are becoming more prevalent, backup battery systems are more viable, and the continued failure of aging power grids, micropower systems, solar–battery–generators, will be the future of residential power generation.

About Us Beaver Electric Team


The biggest challenge we face is the number of electricians available to help meet customers’ needs. The number of electricians in the field has rapidly decreased in the past twenty years and is currently growing by only two percent each year. Of course, we want to serve everybody as quickly as possible, but the best way to grow is through raising your own merits. Although it is difficult for us to occasionally ask our clients to wait, we prioritize the quality of our service over the size of our company.

Our Team

Here at Beaver Electric, one of our core values is to continually build each other, our company, and our community to great success. We all take this to heart and know that each one of us here plays an important role in each other’s success. We strive to be stringent in our hiring practices and when individuals apply for employment, we always tell them “We are a family, and we hire for life. We want the best in what we do.”  Without the entire team, our individual success would be non-existent. We love what we do, we love where we work, and we love each other. That’s what makes us a family.

Our Growth

By June of 2023, Beaver Electric will have 6 technicians and trucks serving the community, nearly doubling our current size. We will continue to grow our crew by sustained growth (growth from within) and are always looking to add high-quality electricians to our team. The residential service market is only going to grow with the continued growth of electrical vehicles and micropower systems.

Warranty Policy

Integrity is important here at Beaver Electric. We offer a warranty that is one of the best in the market and strive to always satisfy our customers. On the rare occasion that our work is not up to your satisfaction, we will fix our mistakes with no added cost. We aim to always please our clients and will guarantee a job well done.
