Ring Power Utility Equipment division was a sponsor at the Florida Municipal Electric Association Lineman Competition Saturday, March 2, in Gainesville, Fla. This year, the event was held at the Gainesville Regional Utility facility just down the street from the Ring Power branch.  

Ring Power has been involved in the FMEA Lineman Competition for several years. Josh Ratcliff, Ring Power Utility Equipment Account Manager in northwest Florida, said it’s a chance for the company to show support for the lineman community that is so integral to both the state and the company.

“Everybody’s been really appreciative that we’re there,” Josh said. “We care about their craft and their hard work as linemen. They support us during natural disasters and put their lives on the line to make sure we have power.”

Spectators watched as linemen from municipalities all over Florida competed in timed events for both apprentices and journeymen. Clay Electric Cooperative placed first in the overall journeyman team category, followed by two City of Tallahassee teams in second and third. 

Josh said the Utility Equipment division finds a lot of value in its involvement with the FMEA Lineman Competition in that it shows support for the municipalities that make up a large portion of the division’s customer base. 

“Each of those municipalities that compete are in Ring Power’s footprint, and we want to show support for public power,” Josh said.
