Lineworkers serve on the frontlines of our nation’s energy needs, and on April 13, 2020, The Energy Cooperative, along with other electric cooperatives across the country, honor them. Line crews work around the clock, sometimes in difficult and dangerous conditions, to keep power flowing to our local communities. Whether they’re restoring power after a major storm or maintaining critical infrastructure to our electric system, lineworkers are at the heart of our cooperative.

When a storm hits, they set aside their personal priorities because Mother Nature doesn’t work around holidays, vacations and birthdays. A service-oriented mentality is one of the many characteristics of an electric lineworker.

The Energy Cooperative is proud to honor our lineworkers who provide safe, reliable electricity to 26,000 members in nine counties of Central Ohio. They work to operate, and maintain 32 miles of transmission line, 2,955 miles of distribution lines, 20 substations, and three switching stations.

The Energy Cooperative invites all co-op members to take a moment and thank a lineworker for the important work they do. On April 13, you can use #ThankALineworker on social media to show your support for the men and women who power our lives.
