Thank a Lineworker!

Eau Claire Energy Cooperative joins the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association in celebrating its 14 lineworkers as part of National Lineworker Appreciation Day on Monday, April 11.

Eau Claire Energy Cooperative lineworkers maintain over 1,700 miles of power lines to our over 12,000 Members. Lineworkers face many challenges and risks in their daily duties to ensure members have reliable power every day. Our lineworkers are heroes. They spend countless hours maintaining and repairing power lines in both the coldest of winters and hottest of summers to maintain the safety and comfort of the members we serve.

Josh Vaningan, Line Superintendent at ECEC said, “We truly have a great group on our line crew. They are exceptionally dedicated to the cooperative and its members. We really appreciate their commitment to their community and their devotion to providing safe and reliable energy to Eau Claire Energy Cooperative’s members.”

On April 11, you’re invited to thank your local lineworkers who work around the clock to keep power flowing.
