On September 22, 1937, Presque Isle Electric Cooperative set its first pole in the village of Posen. The lines built that fall were the first energized by a cooperative in the state, and brought electricity to 82 farm homes just in time for Christmas. The cooperative soon extended lines to Montmorency and Cheboygan counties to provide electric service to rural homes.
Today, we service 35,500 electric meters throughout our nine-county service territory. We maintain 4,800 miles of electric line, 3,863 miles of overhead and 947 miles of underground, serving approximately 7.5 members per mile of line.
