 Thank a Lineman on April 11

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

On April 11, 2016, Sam Houston Electric Cooperative will honor the dedicated employees 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.

“Our line technicians are the first responders of our electric distribution system, and they work around the clock on high-voltage lines,” said Kyle J. Kuntz, Sam Houston Electric Cooperative CEO. “Conditions can be dangerous, but they power through to ensure reliable service for our members.”

One hundred and sixty Sam Houston EC employees, both in the office and in the field, work together to maintain 6,000 miles of line and provide safe, reliable and affordable electric service to more than 53,000 members.

Sam Houston Electric Cooperative invites members to take a moment and thank a lineman for the work they do. Use #thankalineman on social mediato show your support for the men and women who light our lives.
