PECO joins utilities across the country today in celebration of the women and men whose work provides customers with the safe, reliable electric service they depend on to power so many essential parts of their personal and professional lives.

Each year on July 10, National Lineworker Appreciation Day salutes those responsible for maintaining and improving the electric system—overhead, underground, at substations, and everywhere else the grid extends. PECO lineworkers ensure service reliability for 1.6 million customers in southeastern Pennsylvania. These employees brave harsh seasonal conditions as a routine part of their job in the field, and they respond at any hour of the day when emerging issues with complex electrified equipment require their expert technical skills.

Nearly 75,000 lineworkers are employed by U.S. utilities, which celebrate National Lineworker Appreciation Day together with PECO, the Edison Electric Institute, International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW), and PECO’s sister Exelon utilities Atlantic City Electric, BGE, ComEd, Delmarva Power, and Pepco. The annual appreciation day honors the life and work of Henry Miller, the first president of IBEW.

Here is a special thank you from Mike Innocenzo, PECO president and CEO and John McDonald, senior vice president and COO showcasing the hard work that PECO crews perform each and every day, including throughout the current pandemic, to provide safe and reliable service to their customers.
