Piedmont Electric has once again stepped up to help the local community. The co-op serves a big chunk of Alamance County, as well as Caswell and Orange. You might remember we told you Piedmont Electric has been working to expand internet access to many of those rural areas. Now, they are paying out more than 50 thousand dollars to 31 local teachers as part of what they call the Bright Ideas Initiative. The teachers can apply to use the money in areas like art, music, history, science, math and such.
