On May 11, 1935, President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed an Executive Order setting up the Rural Electrification Administration (REA) and appropriated $100 million for rural electrification funds. In September, 1936, Pella Cooperative Electric received a $70,000 loan through the REA to finance the construction of the cooperative's first 65 miles of electric line. The first organizational meeting was held in early October, and Pella Cooperative Electric was officially organized on Oct. 19, 1936. By 1939, PCEA had 124 members.
Today, PCEA provides power to over 2,600 members and more than 3,200 accounts.  We serve parts of five counties, Jasper, Mahaska, Marion, Poweshiek and Warren in Central Iowa.
The board of directors consists of seven directors who are elected to the  position by the membership at the annual membership meeting held in April each year.
