For Immediate Release
WASHINGTON, D.C. (July 8, 2016) - In celebration of National Lineworker Appreciation Day,
Pepco salutes the men and women who work tirelessly, day-in and day-out, to
provide safe and reliable energy services to the District of Columbia and
Maryland. Pepco celebrates its 340 utility workers who operate and maintain our
electric systems and respond to emergencies 24 hours a day, seven days a week,
often in challenging conditions, and on weekends and holidays to keep the
lights on for customers.
"I would like to commend our lineworkers who work daily to
maintain and improve the core electric infrastructure that powers our homes and
businesses," said Donna Cooper, president Pepco region. "We appreciate and depend
on their commitment and dedication to our customers and each other to perform
this critical work safely and efficiently."
To honor the nation's lineworkers, a resolution was
introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives designating July 10, 2016, as
National Lineworker Appreciation Day. Pepco joins utility companies across the
nation, including Exelon sister utilities Atlantic City Electric, BGE, ComEd,
Delmarva Power and PECO, in honoring all utility workers - both on the lines
and in the field.
