On ya bike energex

Postby Orion » Thu Feb 05, 2009 11:52 am

So, I'm sitting here wandering aimlessly around the internet when I hear the dogs outside going crazy. I look out the window and, to my surprise, see an Energex employee riding a bike going around to read the household meters :o

So are they trying to save money (normally they drive around in Suziki Jimny's) or are they trying to promote healthy staff??? I did notice one big omission from his uniform though - a HELMET. Sorry mate but that floppy broad brim hat isn't going to help if you come a cropper. I wonder if it was by choice or Energex didn't provide a helmet???

I made a comment about them being made to ride bikes and he replied, "yeah, they spend too much money on helicopters." :lol:

Energex does not read meters. Perhaps an AGL employee. Perhaps not. Definately not Energex though.

Okay, okay, can I come out of hiding now? :wink:
Come to think of it, we're with Origin. But still, thought was interesting anyway, at least to me...
But as far as I know, Energex are the ones who use helicopters to inspect the network.
