We look forward to introducing you to the Duck River EMC team and providing a look behind the scenes at what it takes to uphold our mission of providing safe and reliable electricity at the lowest possible cost.
“I am extremely proud of the people at DREMC and the work they do day in and day out,” says Scott Spence, DREMC president and CEO. “They are not only dedicated employees, but they are also your neighbors, friends, and relatives. They are the people that power our communities.”
“A tremendous amount of work goes into the daily functions of a cooperative like Duck River EMC. Beginning this fall, we will use social media and The Tennessee Magazine to highlight DREMC team members and how their work benefits the communities we serve,” he adds.
One hundred and eighty employees across all or parts of 16 counties support the day-to-day work of DREMC. They serve more than 79,000 members and manage 6,200 miles of power lines that span from Sewanee to Columbia.
This includes functions that you may already be familiar with as well as many behind-the-scenes roles that are essential to fulfilling our mission.
The behind-the-scenes work requires a balance between working on the “projects of today” and the “projects of the future.”
Keeping up with the growth occurring throughout the communities we serve requires us to evolve and adapt to changing industry regulations and technology on a constant basis. This important work cannot be put on hold—not even during a 100-year pandemic.
