With the co-op’s mobile app, member-owners can monitor their daily energy usage and make better informed decisions to save money on their electric bills.
Co-op offers free programmable thermostat plus monthly savings
Roanoke Electric Co-op is now offering its ecobee3 thermostat at no cost to member-owners. In the past, member-owners could purchase the Wi-Fi enabled thermostat at up to 60 percent off of retail price. Now, member-owners pay absolutely nothing for the thermostat and still enjoy the monthly savings of at least $4.00.
“We’re making every effort possible to ensure that our member-owners know that our job is to provide them with products and services that improve their quality of life,” said Marshall Cherry, Chief Operating Officer for the co-op. “That’s why we’re offering products like the ecobee3 to help them manage their household energy costs.”
By waiving the cost of the ecobee3 thermostat (up to $100.00) and the installation fee ($350 value), member-owners automatically save up to $450. Moreover, the co-op gives member-owners a $4.00 monthly bill credit. If that weren’t enough, the ecobee3 also offers average energy efficiency savings of $9.25 per month.
