Celebrating National Lineworker Appreciation Day


On July 10, Entergy joins the Edison Electric Institute, International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers and other industry groups in celebrating the nation’s electrical lineworkers by observing National Lineworker Appreciation Day.

Our lineworkers help maintain our power lines, routinely working in the harshest of conditions and 50-plus feet in the air and underground to help keep our homes, businesses and communities powered each day. These devoted employees face challenging situations on a daily basis that require technical expertise, intense focus and thorough safety measures.

This year, we’re excited to launch a new webpage dedicated to our lineworkers. Interested in learning more about what it takes to join a crew? You’ll find facts, stories highlighting team members and more at

“As our team stands ready to respond to what will likely be another active hurricane season, we would like to take a moment to recognize the hard work our lineworkers provide, day in and day out,” said Charles Long, vice president of reliability and resiliency. “We’re thankful for their commitment and the pride they take in powering our communities.”

To participate in honoring lineworkers and their families, post your message using the hashtag #ThankALineworker on social media.
