Happy Lineman Appreciation Day!
America’s Electric Cooperatives have designated the second of April as National Lineman Appreciation Day. There are about 18,000 full-time linemen in the electric cooperative program, making up nearly one-third of all distribution cooperative employees. Together, these men and women maintain over 2.5 million miles of distribution line for 850 distribution systems across the country.
On , the ACRE Team honors the dedicated men and women 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 protect the public’s safety. The ACRE Team invites members to take a moment and thank a lineman for the work they do and join us in celebration of National Lineman Appreciation Day.
