Member Spotlight

 Peter Dorgan

Peter Dorgan is celebrating his eighth successful year as the owner of PowerHouse Electric Inc., a Toronto-based company specializing in residential and commercial projects.

Since 2006, PowerHouse Electric has solidified its reputation in quality and customer satisfaction. Dorgan attributes his company’s successes to his long-term, hard working, and knowledgeable staff.

Staying relevant and connected is vital to the electrical industry. Dorgan is part of the Ontario Electrical League’s (OEL) GTA West Chapter and is an active member of the executive committee. He has attended several provincial events that have helped him seek for answers, before the question is ever posed.

“Being young and new, it’s eye opening at what experiences the rest of the members bring. They are always eager to share new business strategies and offer suggestions and solutions when needed,” Dorgan says in the summer issue of Dialogue.

Dorgan learned that he was entitled to an extra apprentice, a fact he quickly seized – having a new addition in his office the following week.

He hopes to enhance this workplace atmosphere with each new staff member he adds by making the investment to train each person in-house. This includes being a proud member of the OEL.
