News: CHELCO makes line improvments in Auburn
Left to right (in the air) Caleb Garrett and Jason Price make necessary repairs to electric lines while (on the ground) Derek Tabor and Rhett Howard serve as “spotters,” for safety purposes.
CHELCO is in the final stages of making improvements to electric lines in the Auburn area. On Monday, June 30, at 9 a.m., CHELCO turned off power in the area so crews could safely switch power to the newly built lines. The outage was expected to last one hour. However, thanks to advance planning and favorable weather conditions, things progressed smoothly and power was restored in 21 minutes.
“We had everyone here ready to go, and the weather was nice, so things went very well,” said Senior Line Technician Ricky Collinsworth.
