City of Gastonia electric awarded
The City of Gastonia has received a national commendation from the American Public Power Association (APPA) for its support in multiple electric power restoration efforts and most recently in the sister Town of Drexel, NC which suffered widespread outages as a result of storm ZETA earlier this year. 

On October 30, 2020, the City of Gastonia sent four crews to assist the Town of Drexel. While responding to these calls for aid, City crews were able to restore power to hundreds of homes and businesses throughout the area, as they cleared limbs from power lines, installed new poles, and reconnected lines that had been damaged.

“As a community-owned utility company, mutual aid is at the heart of what we do and we are proud to step up and help our neighbors in need,” said City Manager Michael Peoples. “It is an honor to offer our support to other communities when they have a need and we have the resources and expertise available to do so.”
