At last month’s annual meeting, NOVEC customers re-elected two members to the board of directors — Wade House in district 5 representing Prince William County, south of Route 29 to Route 234, and Ann Wheeler in district 4 representing northwestern Prince William County, Sudley/Bull Run Mountain. Both will serve four-year terms.
During his state-of-the-Cooperative address, president and CEO Stan Feuerberg announced NOVEC continues to hold on to the title of most reliable electric utility among the seven utilities in the Washington, D.C., region for the 17th consecutive year and was ranked third highest in overall customer satisfaction in the annual J.D. Power and Associates’ residential study of the 137 largest electric utilities in the U.S. “Reliability is no accident. We employ more and more computer technology and our productivity is among the highest in the industry,” Feuerberg said. Feuerberg also said NOVEC’s new service center near Evergreen Mills in Loudoun County, scheduled to open in early 2017, will help the Co-op better serve customers in the northern portion of NOVEC’s 651-square-mile service territory.
Line Technician Recognized for Heroic Actions
During his address, the president and CEO emphasized how much importance the Co-op places on safety training, including cardiac pulmonary resuscitation instruction. He called to the stage Journeyman Line Tech Nick Reckmeyer and showed a news report from WJLA-Channel 7 about Reckmeyer using the CPR skills he learned at NOVEC to save a man who had collapsed on a street near Reckmeyer’s home. After the news video, the audience erupted into applause and gave Reckmeyer a standing ovation.
