We like to think we make a positive difference in the community we serve. Our jobs are more than providing low-cost, reliable power and telecommunications. It’s about people serving people, the core of the public power model.
So, today we highlight one of our own – Micah Lee. Micah has been a part of the HES/Energynet team since 2017 and works in our Energynet internet department as a Telecom Technician. He also interacts daily with both internet and electric customers in his role in the Customer Service Help Desk environment.
When asked about his favorite part of the job, Micah says, “I love working with the latest technology and having the opportunity to see it in action in the community around me. It is also rewarding to work with our customers on a daily basis and help solve the challenges that arise.” When asked about the role of Energynet for Hopkinsville, Micah says, “It gives the city more options for internet and a local alternative to remain connected to the world at large.”
HES/Energynet is locally based, with offices you can visit or call directly to conduct business with employees like Micah, who are part of the community. We don’t want you to spend more than you have to for energy or internet service. Our electric and internet rates are set to cover the cost of running our business and to make investments that will keep our system operating efficiently and reliably into the future. After the bills are paid, the remaining funds are re-invested in our utility to make it better.
We celebrate the public power model all year long. And we say “Thank you” for the trust you have placed in us. Our commitment is to the community we serve. We’re your neighbors and we happily serve the people of Hopkinsville-Christian County today to generate a better tomorrow.
We live, work and play here, too! That’s what we mean when say we are Community Powered.”
