The IEEE Power & Energy Society is a worldwide, non-profit association of more than 29,000 individuals engaged in the electric power energy industry. Our mission is to be the leading provider of scientific information on electric power and energy for the betterment of society and the preferred professional development source for our members. The scope of the Society embraces research, development, planning, design, construction, maintenance, installation and operation of equipment, structures, materials and power systems for the safe, sustainable, economic and reliable conversion, generation, transmission, distribution, storage and usage of electric energy, including its measurement and control.
 The Rio Grande Valley Chapter of the Power & Energy Society was formed in 2010, and we meet regularly in Weslaco. Our Members live and work in the communities from Brownsville to Roma, TX. Our Members keep the lights ON 24/7; they plan, design and construct new electric, electromechanical, and communications systems; they educate the young professionals who are emerging as future engineers. They are an outstanding professional group for the benefit of society, indeed.
