San Isabel Electric is committed to our mission of providing reliable power with superior service. We are focused on maintaining a healthy workforce and keeping key personnel—such as line workers and member service representatives— available so that we can continue to provide the excellent service you expect from us.
San Isabel Electric has had three employees test positive for COVID-19. Those individuals have been required to quarantine following health department guidelines. Employees who have been in contact with those who have tested positive were also immediately quarantined. Positive cases have not impacted essential operations and business functions. Plans and procedures have been put into place to ensure that this remains the case.
Offices have been closed to the public since March 17 and all in-office employees who can work from home are doing so. Those who cannot work outside of the office stagger their time in the office to reduce building population.
Employees working in SIEA offices are required to follow CDC protective action including, wearing personal protective equipment (PPE) and maintaining a social distance of at least six feet.
Our line workers, who respond to outages, will continue working with their assigned crew. It is also required that they continue to wear PPE and social distance. We have contractors and other local cooperatives on standby to help in an emergency situation.
“We are not closed. Service to our members will not stop. We simply will be working differently for a time,” said Reg Rudolph General Manger at San Isabel Electric.
As a not-for-profit cooperative utility, San Isabel Electric provides affordable, reliable electricity with exceptional service to communities throughout southern Colorado. Serving nearly 20,000 member-owners and 24,000 meters, San Isabel Electric has been keeping the lights on since 1938. We don’t just serve communities. We are part of communities.
