The State of Alaska is more than 660,000 square miles… most of which is uninhabited, hard-to-get-to and extreme. But, every square inch is managed by the men and women of IBEW Local 1547 to ensure power remains uninterrupted.

One week, in the most populated city of Anchorage or the next week hopping in a small bush plane, followed by a snowmobile to work in a tiny remote village… 

Whether it’s construction or maintenance, inside or outside, the linemen, electricians or technicians are prepared for anything the conditions may present.

Being prepared to work safely and accomplish any task or project, in any weather condition, the brothers and sisters of 1547 keep on in spite of the challenges.

That’s The Alaskan Way.
