Lineworkers Volunteer for Haiti Project

A PEC crew will help improve electric service to rural villages

For the third year in a row, PEC will send a crew of volunteer lineworkers to Haiti with NRECA International for an overseas electrification project.

Journeyworker Matthew Howell of the Oak Hill District and lineworker apprentices Nick Morris of the Canyon Lake District and Sinjin Horton of the Kyle District will help extend and improve electric service in a remote village in Haiti. Lineworker Apprentice 4 Justin Chamberlin of the Kyle District is an alternate volunteer.

”I wanted to go to Haiti so I could share everything I have learned here at PEC,” Morris said. “I’m ready to go out and help provide electricity to people that are less fortunate than us.”

Last year, three PEC lineworkers worked beside Haitian lineworkers to set about 60 poles along a two-mile stretch of road.
