Is there a viewer for Solidworks Electrical?
Solidworks Electrical exports really nice PDFs, that when you enable all of the options, will show the entire component tree in the bookmarks, and all of the origin destination arrow links are clickable, along with clicking on symbols to jump to another symbol that has been placed for the same component. That was a huge selling point to us, so that our customers would not have to install a viewer, because quite often their IT departments disallow more software.
Are you trying to get it to do something more than what the PDF can do?
The free eDrawings viewer can view native SOLIDWORKS Electrical Schematic designs.
The free Draftsight 2D CAD tool can also view SolidWorks Electrical schematics. In fact, you can edit them there, too (that may be either a positive, or a negative, depending on your use case...)
I don't want to create a new (set of) PDFs every day every time I work on any project. Sometimes I just make one little change.
I would prefer non-users to be able to always access the most up to date drawings.
I have to create 2 PDFs of each project because we like the links, but the version with links doesn't print well, so I also run a version without links.
It takes a lot of my time and causes uncertainty with the engineers that I work with that their changes are there. They want to see them right away.
I want a viewer that will look at the projects just as I look at them, with all the books and drawings together, be able to search and even better cloud and note, without being able to alter the "substance" of the drawing, and without having to pay for extra licenses for viewing privileges.
It seems like it must be easily doable.
Did you assess Jeff Setzer's suggestion? That sounds applicable.
Phil's suggestion above sounds very close to what you are looking for, I did a short video about this awhile back

Does your company use PDM? You could architect a solution through PDM, although it would still involve creating a PDF to put in to PDM (This could happen automatically, every time you check in your project).
Otherwise, I'm not aware of any other way to view SWE drawings as you're looking for.
