Pennyrile Rural Electric held its annual meeting at the Western Kentucky State Fair last night, with leadership giving a good report.
President Eston Glover said the cooperative has total assets of 188.9 million dollars and 5-thousand miles of line is used to service 47-thousand customers in their 9-county region.
Glover says the best asset the cooperative has is its employees, who brave the rough weather to turn the lights back on for members.
In another development, Glover says the Elkton and Russellville warehouses are being merged near the Todd-Logan County line, with the new facility to begin operations next month.
The Elkton and Russelville offices will continue to operate as they are. The crowd in the convention center was perhaps a little smaller than usual for the annual meeting, but most of the seats were filled. It was a historic meeting—as it marked the 75th since the cooperative first opened.
