Cofield wins Roanoke Electric Cooperative’s big electric vehicle giveaway

Another electric vehicle owner is on the road to savings after winning a 2015 Ford Focus EV at Roanoke Electric Co-op’s 83rd Annual Meeting – courtesy of funds made available through the Mary Reynolds Babcock Foundation.

Bertie County Schools Career Technical Education Program Coordinator and co-op member-owner, Wanda Cofield, was the lucky winner of this year’s EV Raffle.

Cofield was overjoyed to learn that she would be driving away with her brand new EV.  She is glad that she will be able to do her part in securing a greener future by reducing carbon emissions.

With eight participants now enrolled in the EV Pilot Program, the co-op is currently seeking additional member-owners to join the ranks of Cofield and others. The first ten to sign up will also become part of the co-op’s EV Ambassador Leadership Program, designed to promote the many benefits of owning an electric vehicle.
