In addition to designing the lighting system of your choice, we also handle all of the work leading up to flipping the switch for the first time. From excavation, setting buried electrical vaults, running wire, and final construction and installation. For new subdivisions, we’ll follow all necessary codes and jurisdictional specifications to ensure maximum efficiency and coverage.
In addition to street lighting, we also design and install traffic signals, parking lot solutions, floodlights for parks, and other types of outdoor lighting. We can retrofit lights on existing structures, provide excavation when necessary, and even work areas that are already established.
We have the most efficient tools and our engineers work to find the simplest solutions to your problems. Prairie Electric crews are well-trained and prepped for any job. Whether you need to replace failing street lighting or bring new lighting into an older neighborhood, we’re ready to go.
We design and install on-ramp meter signals, pedestrian crossings, school zone flashing beacons, as well as video cameras for traffic monitoring applications. If it deals with traffic in any way, Prairie Electric will provide the solution safely. Not only for our crews but for passing motorists and pedestrians as well.
Partner With Professionals
As full-service commercial and residential electricians, safety is always a number one priority. We also have an OSHA-certified, full-time safety manager that double-checks our sites, conducts regular training, and follows other protocols to ensure a safe work environment for everyone involved.
Along with quality craftsmanship and a robust inventory of resources, Prairie Electric is the preferred electrical contractor in the Portland and Vancouver areas. We are looking forward to hearing how we can help at your job site.
Utility Meter Base
Before the electrical wiring comes into your home, business, or facility from the street, it must first run through a utility meter base. This allows the utility companies to track your power usage. As a design-build firm, we work with the utility company, the builder, and you for final placement for the meter base.
Planning exterior lights at your new home, apartments, or subdivision is another of our new construction electrical services. Lighting can be ornamental, designed for safety and security, or needed for code, we can help you pick out the right fixture, bulbs, and spacing for your lights. This includes exterior signage, lights along pathways or sidewalks, apartment parking lots, and street lighting.
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.
