Sustainable Forestry and Land Retention Project

The Sustainable Forestry and Land Retention Project works to restore and conserve threatened forest land in Roanoke Electric’s service area by increasing forest-owner income and land asset values. The project engages youth and young adults in learning what they need to know to advance sustainable forestry on their family lands and provides role models, mentoring, and internship opportunities to begin cultivating future natural resource professionals.

Donations may be made directly to the Sustainable Forestry and Land Retention Project tab of this website, or by clicking the link at the bottom of this page. There are also mail-in options listed at the bottom of this page, instructing that your donation is in support of the Forestry Project.

Community Solar Low Income Assistance Program

Nearly 30 percent of Roanoke Electric Co-op member-owner households have an income of less than $25,000 a year. Many of these households in our community struggle with paying the monthly power bill. The co-op, working through The Roanoke Center, has created a community solar low-income assistance sponsorship program via its Roanoke SolarShare initiative to help member-owners facing financial hardship.  These funds help member-owners who are in need of financial assistance.  Your donations help us create a better quality of life and make a big difference in our local communities.

If you would like to make a one-time donation or set up a reoccurring payment, please visit the “Paypal to Donate” link below.
