— A group of linemen from Electric Cooperatives of Arkansas are preparing to leave for Guatemala where they will help bring electricity to remote villages.

The 14 linemen from eight different electric cooperatives are to leave Wednesday. They will be accompanied by a safety manager.

Electric Cooperatives of Arkansas president and CEO Duane Highley says this is the second group of linemen to make the trip. The first group went last year and help bring electricity to about 450 rural residents in the country.

The Electric Cooperatives of Arkansas includes 17 electric distribution cooperatives in Arkansas that provide electricity to about 500,000 customers.
