$mart Energy $avings

How to save on your electric bill the $mart way?

Smart Energy Savings programs are energy monitoring systems that are designed to save member-owners money on their electric bills. These $mart systems do this by reducing power usage during peak demand times for electricity. Lowering power usage during peak demand times saves Roanoke Electric Cooperative money and keeps the overall cost of electricity down.

Ecobee3 Wi-Fi-enabled thermostats have the potential to provide both energy efficiency and wholesale power cost savings that the cooperative could pass on to member-owners.  The devices also offer member-owners an easy and convenient way of managing comfort and the power bill. Get more information on Ecobee3 Wi-Fi-enabled thermostat or sign up.
