Calling all HVAC/Electrical Contractors! Upgrade to $ave program still has $5 million to invest in home upgrades

The Roanoke Center and Roanoke Electric Cooperative are hosting an “Energy Efficiency Job Opportunity” event on Friday, March 10, 2017.  Your firm is cordially invited to participate in this outreach event to connect your company with the upcoming job opportunities that are associated with providing energy efficiency measures to the Roanoke Electric membership.

Easy steps to greater efficiency

Do you want to save money and electricity but have limited time, money and patience? According to the Department of Energy, a “typical American family” spends nearly $2,000 per year on their home energy bills. Much of that money, however, is wasted through leaky windows or ducts, old appliances or inefficient heating and cooling systems.

Savings adds up with Upgrade to $ave

Since its Upgrade to $ave program was launched two years ago, Roanoke Electric Co-op has helped more than 200 member-owners make energy efficient upgrades to their homes.
