How Do I Love Thee? Let Me Count the Ways…

We get so busy at being busy and doing our everyday jobs, we sometimes forget to tell our customers how much we appreciate them. 

When the power goes out, you call. As soon as our phones start lighting up with outage calls, we are more easily able to pinpoint where the culprit lies. This saves us time and resources and allows us to quickly send help to get your restoration efforts underway.

When we visit your schools and civic organizations or participate in other community outreach, you welcome us with open arms and even send notes of thanks and appreciation. The smallest acts of kindness on your part make a huge impact on us. Knowing that you appreciate the job we do to make our community better makes the long hours in the dark of night so worthwhile.

When you participate in our energy conservation programs, you are telling us that you care. Besides saving money on your electric bill or receiving a rebate, our environment and our future are important to you. We take our responsibility to you seriously and pride ourselves on offering ways YOU can make your own impact in our little world.

When we are facing prolonged outages (likely due to Mother Nature), you show us grace and patience. We know it is challenging. You show us kindness and courtesy when you call to report the outage. You cheer our linemen on when they pull into your neighborhood to bring back the light and you always thank us for a job well done.

We couldn’t be any prouder than we are right now, serving our neighbors and friends. You make our jobs tremendously rewarding just by being you. YOU are our sweethearts every day.

So, for tomorrow, just this one time, would you be our Valentine?
