Country Energy area manager, Allan Rice congratulated long
term Canowindra employees at the Country Energy Canowindra
Field Service Centre recently.
Three employees, who attained 10 and 20 years of service, were
acknowledged, congratulated and thanked for their dedicated
service and presented with a framed certificate and gift of
Allan said he was proud to be working alongside local people
who had given so much to the company and the industry.
“The Service Milestone Awards are our way of saying thank you
and recognising the experience, diversity and depth that our
employees bring to the workplace and to Country Energy’s skill
“Their wealth of skill and knowledge is transferred to others
around them and this is evidenced by the strength of our net-
work and the service levels we provide to the 1,500 plus
communities across New South Wales we live and work in.
“Our employees are the backbone of our business and are
instrumental in our continued growth and development in
strengthening regional areas” Allan said.
Live lineworker, Les Ellis was acknowledged for 10 years service
to Country Energy. Les said the best things about working for
Country Energy are the opportunities to work in the local area
and the training.
“I have been fortunate to work in the local community of
Canowindra for the whole 10 years” Les said.
“I started working for Country Energy as an apprentice line-
worker in Canowindra. When I finished that training I worked as
a lineworker and then trained to be a live lineworker. Being
offered the opportunity to complete the live lineworker
certificate was the best thing I ever did. It’s great being able to
help people, particularly during storm season when the
unpredictable weather can affect the network and we offer a 24
hour, seven day a week service to ensure the power is restored
as efficiently and safely as possible”.
