Cooperative celebrates Lineman Appreciation Day

Every day, lineman enter extreme danger to protect lives and bring us all the conveniences of modern living. They rise 40 feet above the ground with harnesses and safety gear, dancing between snakelike wires that, if improperly handled, can easily erase their lives in a massive jolt of electricity. 
Lineman Appreciation Day celebrates those dedicated people who work in challenging conditions to keep the lights on. America’s electric cooperatives designated the second Monday of April as National Lineman Appreciation Day.

Members will be asked to approve three Code of Regulations amendments dealing with patronage capital credits at the June 13 annual meeting.

Telemarketers calling co-op member offering discounted rates break the rules

January 2017

There has been an uptick of phone calls from cooperative members reporting they have received phone calls from telemarketers asking about their electric bills. This is a violation of Public Utilities Commission of Ohio (PUCO) rules regulating competitive retail electric service providers.

Some cooperative members report repeated calls. Others have been told they can choose their wholesale supplier.

These callers are offering short-term discounted rates and guaranteed savings if they switch wholesale electric providers.
