A century ago, rural electric cooperatives were created to bring electricity to areas that large electric power companies considered too uneconomical to serve. Today, history is repeating itself, except with broadband. Julie Bailey of Great Lakes Energy will explain how her company’s subsidiary, TrueStream, is bringing the internet to rural areas across northwest Michigan and how it is changing rural life.
Attendance fee includes a buffet lunch beginning at 11:30 am.
