We are especially excited about DEMEC’s Joint Lineworker Training Yard and the educational program they offer our apprentice and journeyman lineworkers,” said David Hugg, City Manager, City of Dover. 

As an associate member, the City of Dover benefits from joint advocacy efforts, shared resources, robust training, networking opportunities, and increased assistance through mutual aid during severe weather emergencies, DEMEC noted.

“DEMEC and our members have always supported one another, and we are excited to have Dover on the team. As we chart a path forward for Delaware’s energy future, DEMEC will continue to advocate for the benefits of public power and working together,” stated Kimberly Schlichting, DEMEC President & CEO.
