“We honor the dedicated men and women who often perform their duties in dangerous conditions to keep the lights on,” said Tom VanParis, CEO of Indiana Electric Cooperatives. “Hoosier communities throughout the state depend on the reliable power delivered by Indiana’s electric cooperatives, and our lineworkers work daily in an unforgiving environment to keep the power on.”

The lineworkers of Indiana’s electric cooperatives maintain more than 62,000 miles of power line across 89 of Indiana’s 92 counties to bring safe and reliable power to Hoosier homes and businesses.
