With summer in full swing, Chugach Electric crews are out and about across Anchorage working on a variety of projects. Some of the work is related to Chugach projects, we also partner with local and state road projects, and crews are out restoring power after an outage. It is not unusual for Chugach crews to work 24/7 and weekends for outage restoration, and we often are called to assist Anchorage police and fire departments during certain events.
Occasionally, homeowners have questions when they see Chugach crews in neighborhoods, particularly after normal business hours. This work can require going into backyards to access easements where equipment is often located. You can spot a Chugach crew by the logos on the trucks, the logos on the safety gear they are wearing, and you can also ask for identification.
We know it can sometimes be surprising to see people working near or around your house, so we want to make sure we can work well together. The goal of any Chugach crew working anywhere is to work safely and efficiently. If you have questions about a Chugach crew working in your area, you can call 762-7888 to verify.
