Lucky PEC Member Wins iPad From PowerSouth

Pioneer Electric Cooperative member, Linda Golson, was presented with an iPad on October 30, 2014 by PEC communications specialist Casey Rogers on behalf of PowerSouth Energy Cooperative as part of a energy usage survey prize drawing.

Pioneer Electric Cooperative (PEC) recently joined 20 other electric cooperatives in participating in a residential energy usage study conducted by its power supplier, PowerSouth Energy Cooperative. PEC members were selected at random to participate in the survey and results were given to gain a greater understanding or household energy-use characteristics.

PowerSouth Energy Cooperative serves the wholesale energy needs of 16 electric cooperatives and four municipal electric systems in Alabama and northwest Florida. Of the 20 PowerSouth member systems participating and a total of 7,800 survey respondents, 10 respondents were randomly selected to receive iPads for the wholesale cooperative.

“Pioneer is thrilled that one of our very own members, Mrs. Golson, was selected and we are proud to be affiliated with PowerSouth Energy Cooperative,” said PEC’s communications specialist, Casey Rogers. “This survey is one of the many steps that PowerSouth and PEC have taken in planning for the future electricity needs of our members.” Like PEC, PowerSouth Energy Cooperative is owned and operated by those it serves and is dedicated to providing reliable and economical energy to meet the needs of consumers.

“This is an awesome surprise,” said PEC member Linda Golson, “I never thought that I would be selected when I was asked to complete the survey.”  Linda Golson is a Greenville native and longtime PEC member.

PEC is a not-for-profit, member-owned electric distribution utility serving more than 13,000 homes and businesses in a nine-county area of southeast Alabama. For more information, please contact Casey Rogers at (334) 382-4904 or by email at
