Saturday, April 18, 2020, is National Lineman Appreciation Day, and energy companies across the United States will celebrate. The electricity that powers our lives is an essential part of the world we live in, and so are the employees who put their lives in potential danger every day to make sure we continue to have safe, reliable power in our homes and businesses.
The jobs they perform are imperative to ensuring the most important needs and functions of our communities stay intact.
In honor of the hard work that PNM crews do every day to serve our community, PNM is offering customers a chance to send a personalized thank you card to the linemen who work in our neighborhoods. During the entire month of April, customers are encouraged to visit PNM.com/ThankALineman and fill out a thank you note for PNM crews.
Linemen and other field employees in the energy industry work hard to power our lives, regardless of whatever else is happening in the world. As storms rage in, forcing us to take cover in our homes, PNM linemen are rushing out into the elements to restore power and make repairs to keep the public safe. Linemen are among the first responders in the community and face inherent danger every time they step out to do their job.
“It takes a special level of diligence and resourcefulness to work through the challenges our linemen face every day,” said Jeff Nawman, director of Transmission and Distribution Operations with PNM. “As the community continues to draw closer together during this trying time, we look forward to having customers share in the gratitude we have for their extraordinary work.”
The website will be live through April 30, 2020. Customers can also view other cards that people have submitted. PNM has shared this website with our crews so they can go online and read the thoughts expressed from the customers they proudly serve.
With headquarters in Albuquerque, PNM is the largest electricity provider in New Mexico, serving 530,000 customers in dozens of communities across the state. PNM is a subsidiary of PNM Resources, an energy holding company also headquartered in Albuquerque. For more information, visit www.PNM.com.
