PRECO Board of Director Elections

For nearly 80 years, Peace River Electric Cooperative has been owned by the people we serve. That makes you a member-owner. And, that’s why you have a say in who serves on PRECO’s Board of Directors.

Elected directors serve three-year terms. Members vote for directors who represent their district. Your District number is printed on your electric bill.

If you are interested in serving on the Board of Directors and would like more information, please contact Charlotte Heston at (800) 282-3824 or Charlotte.Heston@preco.coop.
