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.
In 2019, PIE&G provides energy services to 30,800 active members. We serve approximately 33,650 electric meters throughout our nine-county service territory. We maintain 4,909 miles of electric lines, with 3,841 miles of overhead and 1,068 miles of line underground. We serve approximately 7.5 members per mile of line.
