O’Rand ready for new role at LPEA
As longtime, great LPEA employees retire or achieve promotions, it opens up opportunities for others in the organization. Such is currently the case with Dennis McCarthy’s promotion after seven years with LPEA as an Equipment Operator to Energy Management Advisor. He’s now one of LPEA’s consumer-members’ go-to employees in La Plata County for purchase, maintenance, advice (and more) regarding Electric Thermal Storage (ETS) units and Marathon water heaters, as well as the Time-of-Use program.
With McCarthy’s move out of Operations and the equipment operator position, it opened up the opportunity for relatively new employee Decker O’Rand’s promotion to the position. O’Rand, who joined LPEA in January 2018 as a meter reader collector, had previously worked in construction, and welcomes furthering his career at LPEA to sustain the electric distribution system in partnership with the LPEA line crews.
LPEA offers a variety of apprenticeships and employment opportunities. To explore employment, or for additional information, visit www.lpea.coop.
LPEA, a Touchstone Energy Cooperative celebrating 80 years in 2019, provides to its more than 30,000 members, with in excess of 43,000 meters, safe, reliable electricity at the lowest reasonable cost, while being environmentally responsible.
