Local lineworkers head to Wisconsin to aid in power restoration

Posted in Business Announcements

Tri-County Electric Cooperative (TEC) sent four lineworkers to Friendship, Wis. earlier today to assist with power restoration efforts following a storm that rolled through its service territory. At one point Adams-Columbia Electric Cooperative, which has 36,000 members, had 10,000 without power.

Tim Anderson, of Lanesboro, Tyler Eide, of Rushford, Dennis LeFebvre, of Caledonia and Randall Ashbacher, of Caledonia arrived at their destination around 8 a.m. The crews plan to be there for two days.

"Immediately following the flood of 2007 Adams-Columbia Electric Cooperative sent a number of small bucket trucks for us to use until we could replace the ones that where damaged by the flood. We truly appreciated that act of kindess," said Chad Chaffee, vice president of system operations.

Electric cooperatives have a history of working together to help get the power back on.

"Even though it is the holiday weekend, we had employees ready to help our cooperative family when they need it most," Chaffee said.

Just the day before (Friday, Sept. 2) TEC had about 500 members without power for several hours due to a storm that caused trees to fall into power lines. Chaffee says all circuits were back up around 3 p.m.
