Co-op announces EV Subscriber Rate packages

Posted: July 14, 2021 at 9:38 am

Roanoke Electric Cooperative’s Electric Vehicle Pilot Program now offers member-owners the option to choose their rate based on the anticipated monthly mileage.

To enhance our original Electric Vehicle Rate, which is a flat fee of $50 per month for up to 450 kWh providing about 50 driving miles per day, the co-op has added two additional options.  The new options  will allow members to choose from the following additional service levels:

Monthly Charge kWh/Month Driving miles Per Day
$31 Up to 275* ~ 25
$39 Up to 350* ~ 35

“We recognize that our member-owners have different driving needs,” said Curtis Wynn, the co-op’s president and CEO.  “And we’re always thinking of ways to give them options and services that best fit their individual needs.”

The co-op still offers special incentives to electric vehicle owners wishing to participate in our EV Pilot Program.  Participants can now choose from one of three service levels, each of which comes with a free charging station, free installation and a $1,000 incentive.

Those interested in learning more about the cost savings and other benefits of owning an electric vehicle are encouraged to contact the co-op. REC staff will share more detailed information about how EV’s work and the cost-savings potential. Member-owners may also schedule a test drive in the co-op’s electric vehicle.
