Thank You to Our Linemen
April 18 marks Lineman Appreciation Day across the U.S. It is our honor to celebrate the hard work, innovation and dedication of electrical line workers. Take a moment to appreciate our local linemen, who go above and beyond, no matter the weather, to keep our lights on.
We often take electricity—and the men and women who provide it—for granted. Linemen work 365 days a year, 24 hours a day in the blistering sun, rain, sleet and snow to do two things: keep our system safe and the power on. They put their lives on the line every day to ensure you have power at the flip of a switch.
NLI’s linemen maintain more than 2,800 miles of power lines serving more than 19,000 accounts in northern Idaho, western Montana and a small piece of eastern Washington. Although beautiful, this terrain is rugged and remote. Our crews are standing by to serve NLI’s members around the clock to keep your power on and, if there is an outage, restore it as soon as possible. Thank a lineman today, for keeping the lights on.
Annual Meeting May 6
On a final note, our 82nd annual meeting is Saturday, May 6, at the Sandpoint Business and Events Center. Join the NLI board, employees and fellow members of your cooperative to learn more about NLI, enter to win door prizes and claim your $25 energy credit. I look forward to meeting you all. See you at the annual meeting!
