California Associated Power, Inc. (CAP) was founded in 1979 by Michael S. Cullen for the express purpose of bringing Energy Conservation Wiring and Lighting Services to the Supermarket Industry.


At this time Supermarkets were just starting to implement the Scanning of Groceries with Point of Sale Data Processing Solutions. Data Processing Cabling for Point of Sale Systems along with your typical Power requirements were offered. At the same time, the need for MicroProcessor Based Energy Management systems was being introduced to the Industry. Calif. Assoc. Power jumped on this opportunity to install the Industry Leader MARGAUX CONTROLS Systems to over 200 SAFEWAY, VONS, and MAYFAIR stores. Refrigeration Contractors servicing the Industry finally came up to speed and began incorporating the MicroProcessor based Refrigeration Control Systems into their applications.


Today, CAP is one of the most experienced full service Electrical Contractors in the South West. We specialize in commercial/industrial applications and offer in pre-construction planning, design/build, design/assist and installation of electrical systems.
