“We look forward to sharing this facility with our members,” said PEC Chief Executive Officer Julie Parsley. “The Marble Falls District Office is one of the most frequently visited PEC offices, and the new facility will allow us to more quickly and efficiently serve members.”

PEC broke ground on the facility in March 2016 after a third party completed a comprehensive facilities study to determine the health and functionality of PEC’s buildings.

“The former office was 27 years old, and, as with any older building, we faced several challenges,” said PEC Regional Operations Director Nathan Burns. “The condition of the office had declined and there wasn’t any room for growth, which affected both our members and employees. It was time to make a change.”

Burns added that with this facility, PEC is positioned to better serve members in the area.

“PEC is experiencing tremendous growth — adding on average 13,000 new meters a year — and the new Marble Falls District Office will help ensure we can continue to serve our members and exceed their expectations with safe, reliable electric service.”
