There is an abundance of very pricey electrical schematic programs; AutoCAD Electrical is actually on the cheaper end (and, if you love Autodesk products, a good deal if you buy it as part of an Autodesk suite).

We used to use Via Wiring Diagram (which become AutoCAD Electrical) until our NT-based license server died. It's much better than using straight AutoCAD, but I felt being an AutoCAD add-on made it clunky. If I were to buy a new program, it'd most likely be Electrica, based on the pricing model (we only occasionally need to update schematics), positive comments, and that the fact that it's not based on AutoCAD or a clone.
