Lineworkers serve on the frontlines of our nation’s energy needs, and on April 13, Southern Indiana Power, along with other electric cooperatives across the country, will honor the brave men and women who work hard to keep the lights on. 

Line crews work around the clock, sometimes in difficult and dangerous conditions, to keep power flowing to our local communities. Whether they’re restoring power after a major storm or maintaining critical infrastructure to our electric system, lineworkers are at the heart of our cooperative.

When a storm hits, they set aside their personal priorities because Mother Nature doesn’t work around holidays, vacations and birthdays. A service-oriented mentality is one of the many admirable characteristics of an electric lineworker. 

Southern Indiana Power is proud to honor the 14 lineworkers who maintain over 1,600 miles of power lines in our service territory. 

Southern Indiana Power invites all co-op members to take a moment and thank a lineworker for the important work he/she does. On April 13, you can use #ThankALineworker on social media to show your support for the brave men and women who power our lives.
