Electric Member Regulation Notices

Presque Isle Electric & Gas Co-op is a member-owned, member-regulated electric utility, which makes us a little different. Member-regulated means that policy and rates are set by our democratically elected Board of Directors, not by the Michigan Public Service Commission.

The decisions related to electric rates and service policies are now made at special meetings of the Board of Directors that are open to all of the cooperative’s membership. Notice of those meetings will be posted in our office, on this web site and in Country Lines magazine. Actions taken at those meetings will also be published in the same places. You may download and view previous notices, actions taken by the board and any supplemental materials by selecting the links below.

DEREGULATION

WHAT WILL DEREGULATION BRING TO THE AVERAGE ELECTRIC CUSTOMER?

A popular myth attached to the deregulation of the electric industry is, if a member chooses to purchase power from a 3rd party, they will no longer receive a bill from Presque Isle Electric & Gas Co-op. In reality, PIE&G will still generate billings to our members for their service charge, security lights and any additional services PIE&G provides at the request of the member. The bill will also include a “variable distribution” charge for kilowatt usage that travels across our system.

In addition, future building sites or requests for service in our service territory will also still be handled by PIE&G. We will construct the lines and set a meter at new sites as we do currently. It will still be our responsibility to maintain and upkeep our infrastructure. If a member experiences an outage, power quality problem, tree on the line, etc. in a deregulated electric industry, they will still contact PIE&G to correct the situation.

Will you have the power to choose a 3rd party electric supplier in the future? Probably. Will that improve the electric industry as a whole? Only time will tell. However, we at Presque Isle Electric & Gas Co-op are committed to serve our communities, with honesty and integrity. We believe that this commitment and the fact that we are locally owned and operated by our members, will continue to strengthen our organization.
