William Charles Scrimpsher
William Charles Scrimpsher 1967-2019
Will joined MetroPower in 1992 in Macon and spent most of his career overseeing projects at RAFB. He took great pride in his work, always understanding every detail, planning meticulously and committing to find a solution regardless of the task.
During his career with MetroPower, Will had a significant impact on our apprentice program serving as a mentor. He enjoyed teaching people and has left a legacy of the skills he taught so many of our employees.
Will exemplified MetroPower’s values and will be missed.
Macy’s ATS Replacement Project a Success
When our teams are at their best, we do our best for our clients. That’s how MetroPower safely and successfully completed a 2000 Amp, 3 Phase, 480 Volt Automatic Transfer Switch (ATS) replacement project at Macy’s Tech in Johns Creek, Georgia.
This project was critical because when utility power goes out due to unforeseen circumstances (typically weather), the ATS starts the backup generator (in this case, a 1.5 megawatt Cummins) and restores power to the building in a matter of seconds.
Federal Division Grows Staff and Projects
Our Federal Division focuses on supporting the United States government and continues to grow with the addition of new team members and projects. Jeff Cohen is transitioning to a new role working with CarolinaPower and MetroPower’s federal groups in Columbus, Warner Robins, and the Florida Panhandle. Cohen will be procuring new work including design-build opportunities and training new engineers.
Helping Students Discover the Power of Experiential Learning(LAN-YAP)
What happens when high school students are challenged to solve real-world problems, present complex solutions, and collaborate effectively? They discover their own power.
In September, MetroPower hosted a 3DE by Junior Achievement case challenge event with Parkview High School in Lilburn, GA. The challenge theme, Collaborating and Building Teams, required groups of students to work together toward a common goal and participate in a business scenario in which teamwork would be essential for success.
Troy and Serena DeLee
Troy and Serena DeLee serve their community with the same dedication and hard work that they put into their work at MetroPower. One of the many organizations that he and his wife, Serena, support is the Friends of the Library in Macon.
The wildfires that burn across California cause thousands of acres of forest to be lost forever. People and property are in peril and many lost homes, businesses and some, even their life.
4 months of pre-work. 18,000+ hours on an outage, Zero accidents.
MetroPower recently wrapped up a project that took a total of 18,020 hours on an outage, plus four months of pre-work. Staying steadfast on our safety goal, the project was completed with absolutely no one getting hurt.
There were no surprises
As you know, a big part of our dedication to safety is accident prevention – and this project showed that in action.
