Duke Energy and utilities nationwide celebrated “front-line heroes” on Monday, honoring those who keep the power flowing to homes and businesses every day.
Evans wrote in an email sent to WIZS that more than 3,200 line workers are part of the Duke Energy team in the Carolinas, “and we need more.”
She said, “The energy industry estimates 800 entry level line workers are required per year for the next five years in North Carolina alone.”

“We are actively looking for diverse, new talent. We are partnering with Nash Community College to help train for these positions,” Evans said.
But for now Evans said, “Please join us as we salute all of the utility line workers, who are constantly going the extra mile to provide reliable electric service to customers.”
