Boone REMC line foreman Michael Bowman joined a crew of 13 other Indiana electric cooperative lineworkers who traveled to Guatemala in late April as part of an international initiative to bring electricity to a developing area of the country.The crew returned home Saturday, May 13 after extending electric infrastructure in the village of Peña Roja along the western edge ofGuatemala. Approximately 26 homes now will have electricity for the first time.This is the Indiana electric cooperatives’ fifth trip to Guatemala as part of “Project Indiana: Empowering Global Communities for a Better Tomorrow.” The effort began in August 2012, when 28 Hoosier lineworkers from 17 of Indiana’s electric cooperatives, spent four weeks working across the mountainous terrain to bring electricity to 184 homes, a church and a school in three villages.
