Marc believes that a financially strong, well-managed electric utility is essential to the quality of life in our area. Reliable electrical power and quality member service, delivered at a reasonable and stable price are and should remain the focus of PenLight. The Board’s oversight of a quality management team and strong financial controls has allowed the company to keep its rates flat in a steadily increasing cost environment.
