The Power Behind Your Power: PSREC Line Crews

Lineworker Appreciation Day is April 10. During the month of April, if you see a lineworker, please pause to say thank you to the power behind your power. Let them know you appreciate the hard work they do to keep the lights on, regardless of the conditions.

On April 10, 2023, Plumas-Sierra Rural Electric Cooperative (PSREC), 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 restoring power after a major storm or maintaining critical infrastructure to our electric system, lineworkers are at the heart of our co-op.

When a storm hits, lineworkers 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.

PSREC is proud to honor the lineworkers who maintain more than 1,300 miles of power lines in our service territory. PSREC invites all co-op members to take a moment and thank a lineworker for the important work they do. On April 10, you can use #ThankALineworker on social media to show your support for the brave men and women who power our lives.

Committed to the job, committed to safety, committed to you, our members.
