Some of the most visible employees at Dixie Electric are our lineworkers. They work tirelessly to ensure our community receives reliable electric service.
Regardless of the time of day, having to brave stormy weather and other challenging conditions, lineworkers must climb 30 to 45 feet in the air, often carrying equipment and tools to get the job done.
Being a lineworker is not a glamorous or easy profession. It takes years of specialized training, ongoing education, dedication, and equally important, a sense of service and commitment. This dedication and sense of service to the community is truly what sets them apart. That’s why we set aside the second Monday in April to celebrate and recognize the men and women who work around the clock to keep the lights on.
While lineworkers may be the most visible employees at Dixie Electric, it’s important to note that there is a team of highly skilled professionals working behind the scenes. The engineering department provides expertise and guidance for the construction and maintenance of the electrical distribution system. Member service representatives and billing specialists are always standing by to take your calls and questions. Our information technology (IT) experts are continuously monitoring our system to help safeguard sensitive data. And these are just a few of the folks who work together to ensure we can deliver the service and reliability you expect and deserve. Without them, our lineworkers wouldn’t be able to “bring the light” to our community. I also hope you’ll remember that you have a dedicated team of professionals working behind the scenes at the co-op where commitment to service runs deep.
