Pepco Celebrates Utility Workers on National Lineworker Appreciation Day

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.
