Electrical contractors can now outsource electrical drawings required for permits to increase electrification project throughput

IRVINE, Calif., July 22, 2022 –Raiven, a leading purchasing and supply chain management platform, today announced the addition of Illumine Industries to their growing network of leading suppliers. Illumine-i is an engineering and design firm providing plans, schematics, diagrams, layouts and more for electrical projects, with an emphasis on EV charging infrastructure. Electrical contractors can save time and money by outsourcing these activities to Illumine-I rather than relying on internal resources or local electrical engineers.

"Raiven is excited to announce their newest vendor, Illumine-i, to provide engineering support for residential and commercial electrification projects,” said Brett Knox, Raiven CEO. “With the demand for electrical vehicle chargers soaring, electrical contractors need to increase their scale and Illumine-i provides a tremendous cost- and time-saving solution for them."

A New Market for Electrification

As electric vehicle charging stations (EVCS) expand across residential and commercial markets, energy storage systems, microgrids, smart panels and other technologies must be implemented to support the increased electricity demand. Electrical and electrification contractors rely on Raiven to provide all the suppliers and manufacturers they need to complete electrification projects at an affordable price. With this partnership, contractors can utilize Raiven’s platform to access exclusive discounts and Illumine-I’s licensed professional engineers residing in all 50 states.

As the trend toward “green energy” continues to grow, Raiven members can now count on having an experienced design and engineering partner in Illumine-i, who is capable of providing the plans and specs necessary for city permits. Illumine-i readily takes generated energy storage and distribution for electric vehicles into consideration when designing infrastructure for residential, commercial, industrial, and institutional fields.

Knox continues, “City permitting processes are time-consuming and expensive for both contractors as well as home and building owners. Outsourcing the required drawings will help contractors perform more installations and make projects more affordable.
