Meet Our Team
Raven Electric, Inc. has been a cornerstone of the Anchorage, AK community since 1978. Over the last 40 years, we have helped both commercial and residential customers with all of their electrical needs. Regardless of the size of the project, we have experienced technicians ready to help. Each member of our team is trained and certified before they see any fieldwork. This gives you the confidence that your project is in the best hands.
Have an electrical emergency? Don’t worry! When you give Raven Electric a call, you get a live person on the other end, not a machine. We understand that when you need your electrical system up and running quickly, talking with a human is not only reassuring, but it gives you the peace of mind that the job will get done.
