REC and SVEC team up for Girl Power Camp

Rappahannock Electric Cooperative and Shenandoah Valley Electric Cooperative held their first collective Girl Power Camp.

The camp included 11 high school girls who came from Winchester to Louisa County and all points in between.

The ladies received hands on experience in line work including climbing poles, stringing wire, operating a bucket truck and using hot sticks on deenergized circuits.

The ladies also heard from half a dozen women about business models and career opportunities at the cooperatives.
