Every year, we take the time to thank our extraordinary lineworkers who dedicate their lives to keeping the lights on in our local communities. Roanoke Electric Cooperative has 14 lineworkers that maintain 2,000+ miles of line in the cooperative’s service territory, and without them, our world would be dark.
|At Roanoke, we have accepted your call for us to provide you with "best in class" service and we're responding to that call with action. Currently we have set the stage for several projects we plan to complete over the next three to four years.|
Our outdoor Light Emitting Diode (LED) lighting project is one, in which, we will be deploying more energy efficient outdoor lights to all of our member-owners over the next two years. Ultimately, using more energy efficient lighting will reduce both corporate and individual expenses - leaving you with more money in your pocket. As your cooperative, we are committed to efforts that help us bring affordable electricity to you and other member-owners.
Why LED lights?
Here's a comparison photo of a member-owner's home before and after installing the outdoor LED light.

Throughout the 2016 campaign, Donald Trump pledged to review burdensome federal regulations when he became president. On March 28, President Trump took an important step to follow through on that commitment by signing an executive order to promote energy independence. The order also calls for review of the Clean Power Plan.
