Each year on July 10, PECO joins utilities across the country to honor lineworkers who work tirelessly to provide our customers with the safe, reliable energy service they depend on to power their lives. Today, we recognize the lineworkers who work 24-hours a day, seven days a week, to keep the lights on and gas flowing for our customers.
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, along with our natural gas workers, 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 require their expert technical skills.
Lineworkers across the labor industry celebrate National Lineworker Appreciation Day with PECO each year on July 10, including the Edison Electric Institute, International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW), and energy companies across the nation, including Exelon utilities Atlantic City Electric, BGE, ComEd, Delmarva Power, and Pepco.
Please join us in thanking and recognizing lineworkers today. Thank you for your resilience and commitment to our customers, safety performance, and teamwork.
