Lineworkers are essential to keeping electricity running. VPPSA member utility lineworkers work around the clock, sometimes in harsh weather conditions, to keep power flowing to nearly 30,000 Vermonters across 11 electric utilities. Their everyday duties require them to handle thousands of volts of electricity just to keep our lights on. Today, they're doing all of that in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic.
April 18 is National Lineworker Appreciation Day, but you can express your appreciation to lineworkers any time. Now, more than ever, we want to shout our gratitude for lineworkers from the rooftops. Please join us in thanking the men and women who are critical to our electric infrastructure. Their hard work and dedication make it possible for the rest of us to stay safe at home with electricity running.
