Once the power is brought to a site, our design-build team will make sure electricity throughout the site is built to code. This includes emergency lighting, surge suppression, and lighting protection. For added security, we install fire alarms, intercom systems, closed-circuit television, and security cameras.

Having issues with outages, surges, and other electrical issues? We also provide repairs, maintenance, and upgrades in commercial facilities. Our experience allows us to troubleshoot a problem quickly and our skill lets us rectify the situation sooner rather than later.

Prefabrication Shop
When it comes to performing electrical services for residential, commercial, or industrial applications, there are a certain number of tasks that must be completed before electricians are called to the site. Obviously, walls need to be framed before wiring, outlets, switches, and other materials can be installed.

Are you in need of a new or improved electrical distribution system design? You’ve come to the right place. The award-winning experts at Prairie Electric have both the knowledge and expertise to get your electrical systems up and running in no time.


Commercial Outdoor Lightings
Commercial outdoor lighting helps customers find their way around parking lots, adds a layer of security at night, and provides a few more hours of play at ballparks. For industrial or manufacturing uses, outdoor lighting systems allow crews to perform needed service, maintenance, or repair during off-hours.
