Five Blue Grass Energy linemen are traveling to Alabama to aid an electric co-op with power restoration after the state was hit with devastating storms this week.
Ben Coffey, Larry Lovelace, Luke Makowski, Miles Shumaker and Bryant Watkins left for Arab, Ala., Friday morning to help Arab Electric Cooperative recover from tornado aftermath. The city of Arab is located in northern Alabama, about one hour north of Birmingham. Arab Electric Cooperative serves about 15,000 members and most of them are without power.
BGEnergy’s linemen will contribute to restoration efforts. They expect to stay in the area for a week.
