Long-time La Plata County resident joins electric co-op team
Long-time La Plata County resident Robert Lloyd has been named Warehouse Storekeeper at the Durango headquarters of La Plata Electric Association (LPEA), responsible for organizing inventory and assisting linemen with material needed for repair and maintenance of the electric system.
Lloyd comes to LPEA from WESODI, LPEA’s wholly-owned line construction company, where he worked for six years. Serving first as a groundman, eventually promoted to equipment operator, Lloyd gained familiarity with LPEA’s system, literally from the ground up. He also filled in temporarily in LPEA’s warehouse in 2007-2008.
Originally from Texas, Lloyd moved to La Plata County in 1983 to assist his grandparents on their ranch near Saul’s Creek. He then worked a variety of jobs, eventually hired on at South City Market, where he was employed for 18 years before joining WESODI.
Lloyd has resided with his family in the Oxford area for the past 14 years.
LPEA, a Touchstone Energy Cooperative established in 1939, provides to its more than 30,000 members, with in excess of 42,000 meters, safe, reliable electricity at the lowest reasonable cost, while being environmentally responsible.
