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 2022, PIE&G provides energy services to 32,000 active members. We serve approximately 34,547 electric meters throughout our nine-county service territory. We maintain 4,957 miles of electric lines, with 3,820 miles of overhead and 1,137 miles of line underground. We serve approximately 7.5 members per mile of line.
