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.

Over the next 2-4 years, Roanoke Electric Cooperative will invest several million dollars in energy efficiency measures to the homes and businesses of our member-owners.  Your firm is cordially invited to participate in this initiative that will connect your company with the numerous upcoming job opportunities.

You no longer have to wait to watch your favorite show on a specific day in a specific location; technology has given you control of how, where and when you tune in.
