That commitment to detail is how we’ve become the company we are now.

Named the 2018 Subcontractor of the Year by The Daily Journal of Commerce, we are proud of the work we do in the community. Working across a variety of projects, including Hockinson Middle School and the Faubion School at Concordia University, the Sovereign Hotel Building and Hampton Inn Pearl, and Columbia Precast Products headquarters, Maletis Beverage, and T-6 Marine Reserve Site expansion facilities, Prairie Electric is known for our professionalism, execution, and honesty.

We believe good electrical work goes beyond just turning on the lights. For us, it’s a craft. It means running our wires with precision, leaving sites cleaner than when we arrived, showing up and never casting any doubt that the people you’re working with are true professionals.

We work with common sense and responsiveness.

We started as one guy. Quality work was always important, but there was something that differentiated Prairie Electric from other electricians – integrity. It’s not something we set out to do intentionally, it was just work ethic, finishing on-time and never cutting corners.

The work was always done right—the first time—and customers appreciate it.

That was 35 years ago. Prairie Electric has now evolved into a multi-building facility in Vancouver, WA, with over 200 of the most qualified electricians in the area. Despite our growth, that original attitude, that work ethic, that craftsmanship…none of that’s changed, and it’s deeply embedded within our culture.

We don’t just hire people who are qualified – we want people who can think. Contractors know they can count on us because we adhere to a schedule and we follow through on what we promise. We’re as principled as we are experienced. Our engineers anticipate problems in advance, and our supply team ensures our guys have everything they need by the time they get to work.

Making the world move through the flip of a switch is our passion, and we want the opportunity to quote your next project.

A light switch in need of repair, giving off smoke, is a task well-suited for our local Vancouver, WA electricians. Our team of skilled electricians in Vancouver, WA is always ready to handle such problems diligently and efficiently.
