Hurricane season officially starts June 1. When these storms hit, they have the potential to cause major outages. Now, member-owners can easily receive outage updates with Roanoke Electric Cooperative’s outage text alerts.
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.
