Pricing Alert Important Notice About Electrical Pricing and Your Bid Process

updated: May 20, 2021

Pricing continued to fluctuate in April. May has brought further wire pricing changes. Steve Rondeau, Vision InfoSoft's EPIC pricing data manager, stated:

"Both Copper and Aluminum Wiring had new increases on the 4th of May. Aluminum was about 10-13 percent and Copper was 13 percent. Another increase hit the following week: Aluminum: 10-13 percent copper 13 percent. Conduit has been fairly consistent but we are watching for changes.

"Pricing is changing faster than any other time in the past 20 years. We are doing our best to give you as accurate a target/market price as possible. There are several economical markers affecting the market at this time. The biggest is supply and demand. Supplies are very low and demand is high. This may be the biggest factor for quite some time so please always check with your supplier for updated pricing and availability."

Our EPIC price editor team makes changes to commodity pricing on a weekly basis to ensure you get the most accurate pricing possible.  Please consider our EPIC Weekly updates to ensure you are using the most current pricing available for every electrical item in your bid.

Electrical Database

Pricing and descriptions on over 2 million electrical items make up the EPIC Pricing material pricing database. Rarely used items, common items and newer items like solar LEDs are all included.

The EPIC Pricing Team

Our in-house pricing and data editing team fight the never ending battle of price fluctuation. They maintain partnerships with manufacturers, suppliers and customers across the nation.  We update over 520,000 items and add over 75,000 items each month.

Software Integration

EPIC updates your estimating and billing software pricing. You'll save time maintaining your pricing.  Minimize the need to rely on one supplier's pricing data.

Trade vs. Target Price

EPIC includes both Trade and Target pricing.  Trade is the "suggested retail" price while Target is an average benchmark price you'd expect to pay at your supplier.

Your Distributor's Pricing

Your local suppliers can provide a "custom price file" (CPF) that can be imported into EPIC.  Use the imported prices and EPIC will fill in any blanks.  You can also compare your supplier's pricing to the EPIC Target Price benchmark.
