Miles of line
Incorporated on April 2, 1937, 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, and giving back to the community through Dolly Parton's Imagination Library, Operation Round-up, and Youth Leadership Conference, to name just a few.
Co-op leaders are members of our local community. Our nine board members live right here and are elected by co-op members just like you. Board members serve three-year terms. 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 7,050 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. In July 2021, we launched a broadband subsidiary, SwiftCurrent Connect, to bring high-speed fiber-optic internet to rural western Wisconsin.
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.
