Over the last four decades, new business parks, subdivisions, and other closely connected structures have increased the need for electricity. This means more overhead and underground power lines, transformers, and other distribution systems around the county. During that time, technological advances have increased safety, although a broken tree branch can still shut down an entire zip code.
Although utilities may be responsible for bringing the grid to your property, you might consider using an experienced electrical contractor to finish the job.
And we’ll do it safely. When it comes to trenching out for new buried infrastructure, we’ll make sure not to disturb any existing utilities that are nearby. Safety is a number one priority, and not checking before digging is one of the leading causes of injuries with this kind of work.
Depending on what you need the power for, there is a lot of energy coming through those power lines. We take measures to keep ourselves safe, your workers safe, and the general population safe. Whether it’s insulating high voltage areas in your building or taking the proper steps to disconnect existing overhead lines, we take all necessary precautions.
Utility Line Electrical Contractors
For 35 years, Prairie Electric has been installing, maintaining, and repairing electrical power to new and established neighborhoods. Working with construction companies to bring power to new residential areas, shopping areas, or commercial properties, we are well versed in connecting high voltage lines to the established grid.
In addition to line construction and maintenance from city or county power to your facility, we can excavate and install underground electrical vaults, perform directional drilling, and set up substations if needed. We also install power for exterior lights, such as street lights, traffic lights, and pedestrian crosswalks.
In our corner of the United State, we see our fair share of winter storms passing through. And while utility companies will restore down power at the street, you’ll need a trusted electrician to bring power back to your production plant. We’ll get the lights back on as fast as possible so you and your crews can get back to work.
There are several reasons to bury electrical infrastructure during a construction project. For new subdivisions, tree-lined streets are much more appealing than power lines. Overhead wires will get in the way of cranes at industrial plants. And underground utility vaults are better protected against the elements and the occasional human accident.
Of course, burying electrical utility years after a facility or plant has been constructed is a different matter. Trenching after the fact is always a possibility, even if there are several yards of driveway or other concrete hardscapes to deal with.

Electric Car Chargers
As electric cars continue to grow in numbers, the ability to charge from home is becoming more of a necessity rather than a luxury. Whether it’s a single station at your home or a bank of spaces at an apartment complex, the electrical installation of chargers will make it more convenient for electric car owners to top off their batteries.
Making the world move through the flip of a switch is our passion, and we want the opportunity to quote your next project.
