Miles of line
There’s a vibrant new energy taking shape across America; members like you are transforming rural and small communities.
Pierce Pepin Cooperative Services is an electric cooperative, built by the communities we serve to deliver reliable, sustainable and affordable energy. And, because we answer to local members like you, rather than out-of-town shareholders, our electric cooperative has a unique understanding of our local needs. In fact, many of our leaders and employees live right here in the community.
Pierce Pepin Cooperative Services is a community-focused organization, providing jobs and investing in the community through programs like [insert local initiative or economic development initiative, for ex; cooperative solar, broadband] and giving back to the community through Child ID program Operation Round-up, and Youth Leadership Congress, to name just a few.
Co-op leaders are members of our local community. Our nine board members live right here in our local area and are elected by co-op members just like you. Board members serve three-year terms and elections are held at our annual meeting each spring.
We belong to the communities we serve. Since we are a cooperative, any excess revenue is shared back with members, over time through capital credit retirements.
We follow the same seven cooperative principles that all cooperative businesses follow.
Though we are local and serve over 6,880 members in most of Pierce County and parts of Pepin, St. Croix and Buffalo counties, we’re also part of something bigger. Across the country, electric cooperatives work together to restore power during major outages, develop new technologies and build infrastructure that benefits us all.
We’re always looking for new ways to help our members save energy, save money and take advantage of the technology that’s changing the way we live and work.
The opportunity to create something new here, while embracing traditional community values, has never been greater. It’s a passion we share with you, our members, for making our community a place we’re all proud to call home.
That’s the source of our new energy at Pierce Pepin Cooperative Services.
