Piedmont Electric Membership (PEMC) is an electric utility cooperative which  celebrated its 80th year in the year 2017.  We were organized by a group of farmers who wanted electricity to their houses and farms.  Through the Rural Electrification Act, the farmers were able to organize and form a cooperative,  founded and known locally  as REA.    That cooperative (PEMC)  now delivers electricity to  30,000 + members in Orange, Alamance, Caswell, Person, Durham, and Granville Counties and employs a total of 110 employees at three locations – Hillsborough, Caswell County and Roxboro –  and operates under a Board of Directors comprised of 10 members.
