Thank you for your interest in broadband-based services offered by Roanoke Connect.
This program has its origins in Roanoke Electric Cooperative’s focus on economic opportunity for its Member-Owners. Several years ago, the Cooperative worked with the statewide organization of cooperatives to study ways in which we could help our Member-Owners with the increasing costs of energy.
Starting with programs such as Upgrade to Save, Home Efficiency Tools, and on-site visits to assess energy efficiency, Roanoke Electric Cooperative has always focused on helping its Member-Owners save money.
This page lists available and planned services during the current phase of our Smart Grid and network deployment.
