About Us

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.

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

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.

It’s The Prairie Approach

We work with common sense and responsiveness. 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.

We Power Your Building, You Power Our Business

We’re in this for the long haul. Our goal is long-term relationships, not short-term gains. That means the project must work for both of us – we don’t back down from projects, but don’t over-promise either. We make sure we’re always able to stick to what we agree on, and to give you the high-quality service which you deserve.

Our word and our work – that’s what we promise, and with Prairie Electric, it’s what you’re guaranteed.
