Annual Meeting: ‘Making Connections Together’

“Five hundred dollars is five hundred dollars,” Curtis Wynn told the crowd of more 300 member-owners, who gathered Aug. 26 for Roanoke Electric Co-op’s 79th Annual Meeting and Member Appreciation Day at Hertford County High School.  The co-op’s chief executive officer emphasized this dollar amount to underscore the value broadband access holds for member-owners to potentially save on household energy costs.

“Managing these costs continues to be a huge concern for our member-owners,” Wynn said in his keynote address.  “Connectivity stands in the way of member-owners being able to manage their expenses.  That’s why we’re making every effort possible for member-owners to lower their electric bills through our broadband project.”

By taking advantage of the co-op’s signature products and services, enabled by access to high speed internet, member-owners stand to save nearly $500 annually, on average $40 each month, according to Wynn. This was illustrated in the graph below, which was presented at the meeting:  

Also during the gathering, the co-op also announced the pricing for the co-op’s internet service offering:  $44.95 per month.

In other developments, the following board members were approved to serve an additional six-year term:

                Delores Amason (District 2)

                Millard Lee (District 6)

                Allen Speller (District 8)
