2019 Annual Meeting

Prince George Electric Cooperative (PGEC) is doing what it has done for 80 years — meeting its members’ needs. It’s now doing it in a more high-tech way.

That was one of the messages as about 300 members and guests gathered Sept. 30 at the co-op’s Waverly headquarters for the 80th annual meeting.

High on the agenda was an update on RURALBAND, the co-op’s initiative that is bringing high-speed, fiber-to-the-home internet service to its unserved members, just as PGEC first brought power to them in the 1930s.
