Pedernales Electric Cooperative

Custom WordPress Theme Development

For 80 years, Pedernales Electric Cooperative has been delivering safe, reliable, low-cost power to more than a million Central Texans. With more than 300,000 active accounts across Central Texas, they are the largest electric cooperative in the United States.

Zeek Interactive won this custom WordPress theme project based on our response to the organization’s RFP.

Key Features

DESIGN:  Our team collaborated with the Pedernales Electric Cooperative (PEC) in-house web designer to design a custom, mobile responsive WordPress theme that looks great and is easy to use on devices of all types and sizes.

PROGRAMMING:  The website was developed in PHP, JavaScript, and MySQL with WordPress. With customers spread out across the Texas Hill Country, performance was a top priority so we worked to ensure the theme is lightweight and the site loads quickly.

CONTENT MIGRATION: This project was a website redesign and when redesigning an existing site, considerations must be made for the management, modification, and migration of the current content and media to the new site. Zeek worked with the PEC team to restructure and migrate existing content, add new content, handle necessary redirects, and maintain the connection to the custom account management portal.

CMS: WordPress is an open-source, user-friendly content management system that allows the PEC team to manage the website and all of its content and media without needing to edit code or engage a developer.
