Fiber to the Home Community Meeting

PGEC Enterprises has scheduled a community meeting on Tuesday, May 2 at 2:00 p.m. at the Prince George Emergency Crew building, 10800 Prince George Dr., Disputanta, VA  23842.  The meeting is open to the public and will provide an opportunity to learn about the fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) broadband initiative, discuss the pilot project on West Quaker Road and Route 156,and learn about the physical assets used for connection.  The Prince George Emergency Crew building will be wired for fiber broadband service at this time.

First Broadband Fiber Connection Completed

PGEC Enterprises, LLC, completed its first fiber connection February 7.  A pilot program is being tested on about 75 customers in one area of Prince George County.  “It is important that we test this for feasibility before doing a system-wide roll out,” stated Casey Logan, vice president of engineering at Prince George Electric Cooperative.  “Our process, equipment, employee training and other data from the pilot will provide valuable information going forward.”

PCA Decrease

An additional decrease in the Power Cost Adjustment (PCA) goes into effect February 1.  The PCA credit of -.014933/kilowatt-hour (kwh) added to the January 2017 decrease means our members will pay $4.05 less for every 1,000 kwh used.  These lower charges are reflected in the Energy Supply Service portion of your bill.  PGEC remains committed to providing electric service at the lowest reasonable cost possible while continuing to modernize our infrastructure, resulting in improved safety and reliability for all members.
