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.
Upgrade to $ave
Ever wish you could make energy efficiency upgrades to your home or business to improve comfort and reduce your electric bill with no upfront cost? This may be the solution for you!
Upgrade to $ave is a new program that finances cost effective energy efficiency improvements for Roanoke Electric Cooperative member-owners while helping to promote local qualified contractors to gain work.
Through Upgrade to $ave, Roanoke Electric Cooperative will make investments in energy efficiency that allow our member-owners to save money on their bills without making any upfront payments or incurring new debt obligation. In turn, participating member-owners will agree to pay a voluntary tariff on their bill that shares the energy efficiency savings with the cooperative at a level that assures immediate savings for our participants and full cost recovery for our cooperative.
Because Roanoke Electric Cooperative is committed to helping member-owners access affordable energy services, we are proud to be among the first utilities to receive a loan from the Rural Utilities Service through the new Energy Efficiency & Conservation Loan Program. With $6 million in federal financing, we are now able to launch Upgrade to $ave to open the doors of opportunity for our member-owners.
For more information or updates on this program, please contact us at 252.539.4600.Interested in bringing an investment like Upgrade to $ave to your utility? Click here to learn more about tariffed on-bill financing.

Your firm is cordially invited to participate in this initiative that will connect your company with the numerous upcoming job opportunities.
