According to the Big Country Electric Cooperative (BCEC), 25% of their employees are over 50 and expecting to retire within the next 5 to 7 years, a trait that is characteristic of other area electric cooperatives. As such, the industry will soon be faced with a significant shortage of experienced and knowledgeable workers. However, the huge demand for line workers becomes an opportunity for those trained in electrical distribution systems (EDS) to secure a great job at a good salary with attractive benefits.
