History & Information

PC Electric was organized and received its state charter on September 15, 1938. The cooperative serves areas of Iberville, Pointe Coupee and West Baton Rouge parishes.

PC Electric is owned and operated locally by the people who receive electric service. The electric cooperative borrowed money from the Rural Electric Administration (REA) - now named Rural Utilities System (RUS) to build lines and is repaying the loans plus interest. The individuals or businesses that are customers of PC Electric are called members.

As of October, 2017 there were 7,841 members with a $5.00 membership, 10,464 active accounts (meters) and 1,106 miles of lines.

There are 11 electric cooperatives in Louisiana and over 1,000 within the U.S.

PC Electric typically holds its annual membership meeting on the last Wednesday in January of each year beginning at 12:00 noon. However, in the event that the meeting cannot be held at this time, the membership meeting will be held on a date as determined by the board of directors during the months of January, February, or March within the Parishes of Pointe Coupee, West Baton Rouge or Iberville. The annual membership meeting is provided by law and gives members the opportunity to hear and evaluate reports and to discuss issues pertaining to the operation of the business enterprise they own.

The members elect directors by mail ballots prior to the annual meeting. The candidates are nominated by a nominating committee and by a written petition of 15 members. The cooperative territory is divided into seven districts with one member elected from each district to serve as a director of the board.

Myron A. Lambert is the General Manager. He was selected by the Directors and is responsible for carrying out the day-to-day operations of the electric cooperative within the guidelines determined by the board. There are 41 employees that are hired by the manager and they are responsible to him.
