With the proliferation of natural disasters around the Pacific Northwest, including wildfires, ice storms, and anything else Mother Nature can throw at us, public utilities take steps to mitigate the damage.

There are trade-offs of course. These shutdowns affect homeowners, retail stores, and industrial facilities. At home, a gallon of milk may go bad. At a food processing plant, tens of thousands of dollars of inventory could be lost. At a hospital, lives could be put in jeopardy.
No matter the size of your power needs, Prairie Electric has a solution for back-up power.
