LVE Crew Helps Utah Community

Lower Valley Energy has sent personnel to northern Utah after a strong wind storm Thursday left upwards of 50,000 Utah residents without power. The power systems in the City of Kaysville and surrounding communities were seriously damaged by the extreme wind leading to a disaster declaration due to the extensive damage to the communities. LVE Spokesman Brian Tanabe says Lower Valley Energy has sent two line trucks, a bucket truck, material and five men. Those five linemen traveled to the stricken area Saturday from both the Afton and Jackson offices.  Tanabe says the Lower Valley Energy crews will stay in Kaysville as long as needed unless called back for an emergency here. The last time Lower Valley Energy mobilized to help another utility was the hurricane Katrina disaster in 2005. Tanabe assures that in the meantime, each Lower Valley Energy office has enough linemen to handle standard outages and repair work that may arise.

  • My new used truck may be the death of me - October 23, 2014
    Not long ago, I brought home a 1994 Ford F-250. It’s not much to look at, but it’s even worse to drive. About the only things it has going for it are that it’s mechanically sound, and it’s technically a vehicle. I’ve named it Clunk, for good reason. When you shift it into either drive […]
