National Lineman Appreciation Day is celebrated each year on April 18 and honors the hard work, innovation and dedication of America's electrical lineworkers. AES Indiana, a subsidiary of The AES Corporation (NYSE: AES), joins the celebration in honor of the hard-working men and women who work in challenging conditions year-round to keep the lights on for customers in central Indiana.
“AES Indiana linemen work day and night, sometimes in hazardous conditions, going above and beyond to power our community,” said Mike Shruba, AES Indiana Vice President of Transmission and Distribution Operations. “Lineworkers work with thousands of volts of electricity, high atop power lines 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. They’re seldom recognized for the incredible work they do.”
AES Indiana lineworkers must compete 8,119 hours of training and rigorous curriculum. The apprenticeship takes four years to complete and includes everything from classroom learning to extensive field training.
AES Indiana invites the community to honor lineworkers on Monday, April 18 by taking a moment to thank them for their work. Use #ThankALineworker on social media to show your support for the people who power our community and light our lives.
