Have you ever wondered what causes your power to go out or blink? Roanoke Electric Co-op takes pride in being able to keep your lights on. However, we do recognize that sometime outages may occur. The video below gives insight about the most common causes of power outages.
Operation Round-Up is a grant program where our member-owners' "spare change" is awarded to non-profit organizations to make "big change" in our service area. When our member-owners choose to round up their electric bills to the next highest even dollar, their combined contributions go to the program. Find out how your non-profit organization can apply or how member-owners can request to contribute today.
We care about our communities! Need a presenter for a school or civic organization event? Co-op employees are available to present a variety of programs that educate youth on electrical saftey, energy conservation, and other topics. You can schedule a visit.
