Who We Are

Over 50 years in the business

HotWire companies have been providing superior electrical, data, and communication contracting services for more than 50 years.

Over 100 skilled professionals

We hire estimators and project managers. Field crews of wiremen, linemen, technicians, and service personnel are provided from the Local IBEW 1547.

Guaranteed safety and efficiency

We’re committed to safety with full buy-in from management and employees. Our goal of "nobody gets hurt" is the guiding principle that drives our safety program to ensure occupational injuries and illnesses are eliminated.

24/7 service and maintenance

We provide electrical service and maintenance for residential, commercial, utility, and local, state, and federal customers. Our service electricians are on-call 24 hours a day, seven days a week to meet your immediate and emergency needs.

Today the HotWire family serves the local community from residential, up to utility-level, and large-scale federal projects.

In 2011, Chenega Corporation, an Alaska Native Village Corporation with a successful global presence in federal contracting, acquired HotWire, Inc. and its five subsidiaries, effectively expanding Chenega's portfolio of contract services into the electrical, data, and communications markets.

The Chenega parentage also allows HotWire to leverage their extensive bonding capacity, working capital, and in certain markets, Chenega's Small Business Administration Native 8(a) government contracting status. Each of these attributes further distinguishes HotWire in the markets where they have proven success today and serves as a catalyst for opportunity in the federal contracting arena.
