CO-OP PRINCIPLE #7


Concern for Community


PEC received the 2012 Community Excellence award at the 2012 Rural Smart Grid Summit (RSGS) for selfless contributions and continued work within its community. Announced on October 30th


at the Hotel Del Coronado in San Diego, California, the award was one of two awards presented at a gala on the final evening of the two day event.


The award was voted on by the Smart Grid Summit advisory board made up of utility executives, industry analyst, senior executives from technology companies and association representatives. One hundred and twenty electric cooperatives had the opportunity to nominate themselves for the Community Excellence Award which went to the REC that demonstrated selfless and extraordinary contributions to the community.


This year, PEC teamed up with the Chickasaw Nation Medical Center and Valley View Regional Hospital to host a two day community blood drive resulting in 276 donors that will touch 837 lives. PEC also took part in CoBank’s “Sharing Success” Grant program which helped Valley View Regional Hospital facilitate the purchase of a MapCHECK diode array and software system. The MapCheck device delivers higher doses of radiation without impacting nearby normal tissue of local cancer patients.


Top nominees for the Community Excellence award included PEC, Flint Energies, Georgia, and Verendrye Electric Cooperative, North Dakota.


As Randy Ethridge, PEC’s Executive Vice- President and CEO explained, “It is a great honor to have our efforts selected as one of the best in the country at a world class event like RSGS. It is even more rewarding to contribute to the well-being of our member-owners and that of our local community. Through hard work and determination to better our community and more importantly, someone else’s chance of living, we hope to have saved many lives and touched countless others. ”
