Prince George Electric Cooperative has a commitment to keep the cost of electricity as low as possible while still providing safe and reliable service. The cost of generating electricity and meeting federal regulations has caused the overall cost of energy to rise. Cutting consumption of electricity is one step to take to lower our monthly utility expense. Everything from landscaping to the choice of light bulb to the use of ceiling fans offer ways we can reduce our electric use.
