Backflow or electronic valve?

I am coming in from the aquarium hobby and I am trying to find a valve but am a bit out of my realm. What I need is a valve (1.5 and 2 inch) that needs electricity to keep open. So basically when the power goes out the valve will close, then open back up when the electricty goes back on.
Is there such a thing?
any chance its all plastic?

I know that ASCO makes a "Red Hat" valve in both, normally open and normally closed configurations. Not sure on an all plastic valve in that size!

Just use a regular sprinkler valve and a Sprinkler Timer and set up times
