You’d think our line crews would have enough to do. With wind and snow storms. Downed power lines. Equipment repair. And delivering service to new customers. But our line crews have never been the kind who let their job description describe everything they do. That’s why they’ve been known to report crimes in progress. Repair tires for senior citizens. Direct traffic around accidents. Even guide visitors to mo- tels and local attractions. You see, our crews are committed to providing you the best electric ser- vice possible. But they’re also committed to this community. And to doing whatever it takes to make life here just a little better. The result is often people we can all look up to.


Serving you since 1939
