Upgrade to Save

Sharing Insights of Our Experience with Pay As You Save® (PAYS®)

Roanoke Electric Cooperative offers to our member-owners a no-debt on-bill financing option for investments in cost-effective energy efficiency upgrades.  Our opt-in tariff for energy efficiency is called Upgrade to $ave, and it is based on the Pay As You Save® (PAYS®) system.  The PAYS system is suitable for all customer classes, including customer segments that often face barriers to money-saving investments, such as renters, members with poor credit, and businesses with limited access to capital.

Sharing Insights of Our Experience with the EECLP Program

Roanoke EMC is pleased to join North Arkansas Electric Cooperative as the first two recipients of financing through the Energy Efficiency & Conservation Loan Program (EECLP) offered by the Rural Utilities Service (RUS).  Because our cooperative has gained valuable insights of experience in the process, we are prepared to share that value with cooperative leaders who are interested in cost-effective investments in energy efficiency and distributed renewable energy.
