PEC board approves resolution regarding broadband

Next steps and future direction discussed

Pedernales Electric Cooperative’s Board of Directors today approved a resolution that outlines next steps regarding broadband opportunities.

A feasibility study, which was conducted by a third party in 2019, identified both opportunities and challenges to deploying broadband across PEC’s vast geographic footprint. Since the details of the study and its findings contain sensitive, proprietary, and competitive information, PEC will not be able to release these materials.

However, the board remains focused on finding solutions that are fiscally and operationally responsible for the cooperative and its membership, which is why it will hold a closed, executive session workshop in October to further discuss opportunities. We expect further direction on the matter in 2021.
