A POWERful team

April 27th, 2022 // Kudos

On Monday evening, Saint Agnes experienced a temporary power loss due to a car accident that took down a primary PG&E power pole and transformer. Often, it isn’t until things go wrong that we can fully appreciate the people responsible for making them go right. Monday’s power loss was an important reminder of just how fortunate we are to have such a skilled and dedicated Plant Facilities team. We owe a debt of gratitude to these unsung heroes, so please, the next time you see them, extend your thanks.
