It is with heart-felt gratitude that we express our deepest thanks to the following people and businesses that helped us during last week's outage.
Thank you to the employees of Sussex Rural Electric Cooperative. Every one of our employees, whether they were out in the field or in the office, stepped up and helped with last week's storm.
Thank you to the linemen who left their homes & families in Pennsylvania to help restore power to our members and the Cooperatives who lent trucks and crews: Adams Electric Cooperative in Gettysburg, PA; Central Electric Cooperative in Parker, PA; New Enterprise Rural Electric Cooperative in New Enterprise, PA; REA Energy Cooperative in Indiana, PA; Valley Rural Electric Cooperative in Huntingdon, PA; Warren Electric Cooperative in Youngsville, PA.
Thank you to the crews from Asplundh Tree Expert, LLC who assisted with cutting and clearing trees and branches so our linemen could do their work.
Thank you to the local companies in the area who came to our assistance: Minerals & Appalachian Hotels; United Rentals; John & his crew at IP&E; Clove Brook Deli; Sit & Chat Diner in Sussex; Highland Lakes Country Club.
Also, special thanks to both our Congressional District Office and Congressman Josh Gottheimer, and also a thank you to the Governor's office and Governor Phil Murphy himself for reaching out to the Cooperative and offering his support during the height of the storm.
And, of course, most of all, thank you to all of our members for their patience. The outpouring of messages of support and well wishes during the outage were greatly appreciated by our staff and crews in the field.
A storm situation like the one we experienced so soon after the Thanksgiving holiday makes us feel more blessed and grateful now. Thank you!
