$mart Energy $avings

How to save on your electric bill the $mart way?

Smart Energy Savings programs are energy monitoring systems that are designed to save member-owners money on their electric bills. These $mart systems do this by reducing power usage during peak demand times for electricity. Lowering power usage during peak demand times saves Roanoke Electric Cooperative money and keeps the overall cost of electricity down.

Ecobee3 Wi-Fi-enabled thermostats have the potential to provide both energy efficiency and wholesale power cost savings that the cooperative could pass on to member-owners.  The devices also offer member-owners an easy and convenient way of managing comfort and the power bill. Get more information on Ecobee3 Wi-Fi-enabled thermostat or sign up.

Smart water heater controls is a load management program allows member-owners to assist the cooperative in keeping down its peak demand for electricity and receive a monthly credit of $1.00 on their electric bill.   It is a demand side management program that is designed to keep down the cooperative’s peak demand costs.  We do this by connecting load management controls to water heaters.  These controls adjust your water heater during periods wherein we will need to shed our load.
