Value of Membership

There’s power in a co-op membership.

We do things differently at Piedmont Electric. As a co-op, we are committed to seven core principles that guide us as we provide the highest-quality service.

We deliver reliable, affordable power because we are committed to the well-being of our members. Continue reading to learn more about how we’ve been exceeding expectations since 1938.
