The PTC Lineworker Academy and Covia Roff Plant have entered into an agreement for training that allows the class to work at the site and remove old, obsolete, unused electrical distribution lines and poles. On April 15 we began the removal of de-energized and condemned distribution lines at the Roff plant. We removed over 500ft of 3 phase power lines and will continue to work to remove the poles and other obsolete power distribution lines.
