May is Electrical Safety Month

Putting safety first this month – and throughout the year

Missing Your Co-op Living?

Some of you may not have received your March/April 2015 copy of Cooperative Living. Due to a programming issue with the mailing labels, some were noted as undeliverable and returned to us. We have determined some residents of Bailey's Ridge Apartments, Jefferson Pointe Apartments and Independence Place Apartments have been affected the most.

2015 Washington D.C. Youth Tour

Prince George Electric Cooperative believes in educating youth about the science and safety of electricity. For Juniors in high school, this is taken further with the 2015 Summer Youth Tour. The Electric Cooperative Youth Tour has brought high school students to Washington, D.C. every June since the late 1950's. We believe that students should see their nation’s capital up close, learn about the political process, the cooperative business model and interact with their elected officials.
