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 – Cedric Russell. Cedric works in our outside operations department as a Warehouse Helper. He has been a part of the HES/energynet team since 2010, and works side-by-side with our Warehouseman Jeff West. Helping to keep the outside grounds and warehouse spruced-up for our customers who visit our office are some of his important duties. When asked about his favorite part of the job, Cedric adds, “being able to work with Mr. Jeff.” Cedrick helps Mr. Jeff keep things organized and stocked on the warehouse shelves. They’re a team. When Cedrick is not at HES he works at Trace Industries and likes to build car parts.
HES/energynet is locally based, with offices you can visit or call directly to conduct business with employees, like Cedric, who are part of the community. We don’t want you to spend more than you have to for energy. 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 communities 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.”
