The Value of Electricity

The Value of Electricity

Electricity - most of us just can't live without it. It powers our homes, our businesses, our lives. And it is a great value.



At Roanoke Electric, we know that the value of a dollar is important to our member-owners. That's why we have a variety of services available to assist member-owners in determining the best way to lower their energy use so they can lower their electric bill. We also have energy experts on hand, who can answer specific questions member-owners may have about their electric bill or appliances and how they use electricity within their home.

When compared with other items we buy every day, you can see how valuable electricity is. Electricity has increased just 1.6 percent a year nationally for the past five years. When you consider how reliable electricity is, the value goes up even more.

Major appliances and central air conditioning can be found in most homes. Digital video recorders (DVRs), computers, and multiple televisions have become universal. Clearly, the need for electricity shows no signs of slowing down. The next time you flip a switch, use your toaster, or run your washing machine, remember the value electricity holds.

At REC we are looking out for you by working together to keep electric bills affordable, controlling costs through innovation, and putting you, our member-owners, first.
