Electrical Wire Pricing Has Been Fluctuating With Copper Prices

The pricing on copper electrical wire weighs heavily on the copper commodity traded on the stock market. As it fluctuates up and down the pricing of copper wire does the same. Manufactures of copper wire literally change pricing every day during a volitile market such as this.

Most electrical contractors and users of wire and cable are starting to understand the fluctation of copper. They’re starting to ask “What’s the current copper price today?” instead of “Why has the price gone up?”. Some manufactures and distributors will raise pricing while copper is up but not bring the prices back down when copper is falling. Beware and always check around for the best price you can find because it will be expensive.

If you’re a home owner looking for a smaller one time purchase then you might have different things to look for. There are a lot of wire and cable distributors out there that might offer good pricing on large quantity but not on small quantity purchases. They also might only offer certain spool sizes rather than cutting it to the length you need.
