Hopefully you already know that April 18 was National Lineman Appreciation Day, an important celebration that Energy Central along with Quanta Services is stretching to a weeklong opportunity to recognize and thank the linemen across the utility sector that keep our nation's grid humming!
Along with the various other content and celebration going live all week long on Energy Central, we wanted to ask a handful of linemen directly what they loved about their job and what they wanted utility professionals everywhere to know. We were fortunate enough to hear from a myriad of linemen in response:
- Arizona Public Services's Chris Babineau and Corey Lundberg
- Duquesne Light Co.'s Noah M.
- Kissimmee Utility Authority's Jamie Boswell
- City of Tallahassee Electric Utility's Wayne Young, Chase Callahan, Tremaine Jones, Thomas Steverson.
I hope you will take a couple of minutes to get to know some of these frontline workers in the electric power sector by watching the below video. And, let them know in the comments your thoughts: not only is this the week to #ThankALineman, but it's also a great one to ask them questions, provide your experience with linemen at your organization, and more, so don't hesitate to jump in!
And a special thanks to our Partner Quanta Services for supporting this initiative!
