Slideshow: DEC Crews Hard at Work

America’s electric cooperatives have designated the second Monday of April as National Lineman Appreciation Day.

On April 11, 2016, Delaware Electric Cooperative will honor the dedicated men who often work in challenging conditions to keep the lights on. We proudly recognize all electric linemen for the services they perform around the clock in dangerous conditions to keep power flowing and to protect the public’s safety.

“Our lineworkers are the first responders of our electric distribution system, and they work around the clock on high-voltage lines,” said Bill Andrew, President and CEO of Delaware Electric Cooperative. “Conditions can be dangerous, but they power through to ensure reliable service for our members.”

More than 40 hardworking linemen maintain 7,000 miles of line in Delaware Electric Cooperative’s service territory.

 Delaware Electric Cooperative invites members to take a moment and thank a lineman for the work they do. Use #thankalineman on Facebook and Twitter to show your support for the crews who light our lives.
