Co-op invites Contractors to Wi-Fi Devices Initiatives Workshop

Roanoke Electric Co-op is inviting local contractors to participate in its Upgrade to $ave Wi-Fi devices workshop on Wednesday, October 4.  Upgrade to $ave is a program that finances cost-effective energy efficiency improvements for co-op member-owners while helping qualified local contractors gain work. 

The Wi-Fi devices initiative is a part of the Upgrade to $ave program.  This initiative includes the installing of ecobee 3® Thermostats and Water Heater Control devices to help reduce consumption during anticipated peaks that impact power supply cost.
