💛REC: Committed to the Community💙

13 years ago, REC’s Brian Wolfe stepped up to the plate when his son’s Little League baseball game didn’t have an umpire. He’s been umpiring ever since. “It’s my way of giving back to the community, helping to provide youth the opportunity to play baseball and softball.” This summer, Brian was selected – for the second time – to umpire in the Little League Softball World series. Please join us in THANKING Brian for his commitment to our communities! Read more: https://bit.ly/3C0MxhW #WeAreREC #baseball #softball #LittleLeague #umpire #community #youth

Hispanic Heritage Month - Ronald Flores

Ronald, a Distribution Designer at REC, came to the US from El Salvador when he was 23 years old without a cent in his pocket. He didn't speak English. To him, as he remembers where he came from and where he is today, Hispanic Heritage Month is more than a month long event - it's ever-present. #WeAreREC #HispanicHeritageMonth

Yard sale & lost pet flyers often find their way onto utility poles. These pose a serious danger for REC linemen who climb poles when restoring power after storms or completing routine reliability maintenance. The signs, staples or other items used to post the signs can puncture their safety gear, leading to a serious safety hazard. (Pssst…it’s also illegal!) #WeAreREC #safety #linemen

A Note for our Members in Spotsylvania County:

REC crews are currently working to repair an underground line in the county. As a result, some members may experience frequent but short losses of power. This could continue for the next few hours.

We apologize for the inconvenience, but please know the work the crews are completing will ultimately improve reliability. We appreciate your understanding as our crews work as quickly and SAFELY as possible on this important project.

The REC family extends our sincerest thoughts & prayers to the families, friends, and colleagues of Layton Ellison and Eli Babb, two young Pike Electric employees who died after coming in contact with a live line while assisting Alabama Power with storm restoration efforts. #Lineman #linework

I really appreciate RECs effort to connect with the communities, but we need to begin the conversation on conservation. Having property that backs up to a major row of lines, I recently had the opportunity to encourage wildlife habitat protection, by avoiding the use of heavy equipment on my parcel, for its 10 yr clean up. It was difficult for the sub-contractors, although Dave and the REC folks were very patient with me.. when all was said and done, we lost at least 4 box turtles and much wildlife habitat,.. There has got to be a way these miles and miles of lines can promote and provide for our wildlife instead of killing all those in the way. As a long time member of REC. I would like this conversation to be kicked up a notch. Wildlife in Virginia, especially Central VA, is struggling with very little preserved land and private property will be its last stronghold. It is time for REC to be a leader in innovation and preservation. Just Think of All The Good You Could Do. photos available, but to graphic to share.. Thank you for listening.
Power out in Hadensville area. Any estimate of restoration?
I would like to thank all the REC workers who came out last night between 10 PM and 4:30 AM to get our electric back on At Hoover Rd., Madison County! Long night for everybody! Thank you for all your hard work you are very appreciated!
Please tell me how we always seem to lose power on sunny days? Then are the last ones to get power back?
Thank you for getting power back in so quickly on Boston rd! 👍👍
Power out in LOW Section 6.
Is anyone having intermittent power outages in Spotsylvania???
Sending thanks to all those that braved the storm to restore my power. As always your prompt response to outages is appreciated!!
A great big THANK YOU to all your wonderful workers for restoring our power this evening!!! You guys ROCK! Be safe!!
Your payment by phone system does not work as when I enter my cc number it adds digits to it when it repeats it back to me. Impossible to use, and no representative available to speak to. LOUSY service!
Thank you REC for checking on the outage on Pony Farm Rd this evening. Seeing the yellow REC truck makes the outage issue easier to deal with. You are our hero. You are so appreciated. 🤗
When will we get our lights back on in St Stephens church Va?
