Alamon Pole Inspections to Continue Throughout Summer

Alamon, a pole inspection contractor for Kenergy, will continue pole inspections throughout the summer. Each wooden pole Kenergy owns, or is attached to, will be inspected to ensure there are no hazards. Inspectors check for decay, insects, cracks, holes, age, and any damage members may have caused.

You may see trucks in your area bearing a ‘Kenergy Contractor’ magnet. Inspectors will also have an Alamon picture ID with them. Inspectors will be working during daylight hours only. Don’t be alarmed if you see the contractors parked for a few hours and/or riding from pole-to-pole on an all-terrain vehicle.

Inspection areas include Marion, Race Creek and Zion.

If you suspect something irregular or suspicious, please give us a call!

Surge Protector vs. Power Strip

Surge Protector vs. Power Strip 

Although surge protectors look very similar to power strips, the two are different.

 

Power Strips

Power strips act only as an expansion of a wall outlet, allowing more devices to reach power. They typically have a small circuit breaker, but power strips are not designed to protect from powerful surges.

 

Surge Protectors

Surge protectors provide the same features as power strips; they still allow users to plug in multiple electronic devices. But surge protectors reduce the chance of power surges and spikes from damaging your electronics. Point-of-use surge protectors generally cost between $20 and $40, with higher-priced models able to absorb higher surges.

Kenergy Board Election Winners Announced

Jonathan Ayer of Calhoun was re-elected to the Kenergy board for another three years.  Mr. Ayer, who has represented District 10 – Ohio/McLean counties, since 2012 was challenged by Dr. Joe McCarty of Centertown.

Incumbent Bob White, representing District 2, faced no opposition and will retain his seat for another three-year term on Kenergy’s Board.

John Warren, who has represented District 7 since 2006, did not seek re-election.  Dr. Eddie Leach of Masonville was the only candidate who submitted a petition to have his name placed on the ballot and was declared the winner of the District 7 board seat without an election.
