By: | July 1, 2019

Xcel Energy, the Edison Electric Institute and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers celebrate National Lineworker Appreciation Day on July 10. It’s a day to showcase our line, meter and shop workers for the work they do, day in and day out in every kind of weather, to ensure our 3.5 million electricity customers have power. They also go beyond the call of duty and respond to requests for mutual aid, helping utilities across the country restore power after natural disasters.

Here are four lineworkers talking about their careers at Xcel Energy, just click on the images to watch the video:
