The Roanoke-Chowan Partners for Progress Phase 2 will convene its quarterly meeting on Friday, October 20, at Roanoke Electric Co-op’s headquarters. RCPP2 is a local collaborative effort of community partners led by the co-op. Please see the agenda for the upcoming meeting:
Renewable energy is energy generated from natural resources such as sunlight, wind, rain, tides, and geothermal heat, which are renewable (naturally replenished). Approximately one-fifth of the energy produced globally is generated from a renewable source. Renewable sources of energy protect the environment by offsetting the amount of carbon emitted into the atmosphere by typical sources of energy.
Roanoke Electric has joined the effort by registering in the NC GreenPower program. REC collects voluntary contributions to NC GreenPower through member-owners’ electric bills. Please visit NC www.ncgreenpower.org for more information.
Roanoke Electric has also developed an Interconnection Agreement for owners of renewable generators who wish to sell power back to the cooperative. Review our application to interconnect and our rate riders for information on our monthly fees and credits we’ll apply to your bill. Also, click here for a list of requirements necessary to establish interconnection and purchased power agreements.
Many of our member-owners are interested in renewable energy, and so are we. That’s why we’ve brought a community-shared solar farm to our community to benefit cooperative member-owners. Get more updates on this effort here.

Invoice Billing - For the convenience of member-owners with multiple accounts, the cooperative is able to aggregate billing of all of these accounts into one consolidated electric bill. This alleviates the hassle of making payments for two and three accounts when all can be reconciled through one invoice. It also helps the preserve the environment by reducing paper necessary to print all bills.
