Value of electricity continues to shine
Think about everything in your home that’s plugged in right now: lamps, TVs, computers, printers, gaming consoles, music and video players, various appliances, and plenty more. The power you receive from Rock Energy Cooperative keeps you connected to the modern world.
Electricity is so much a part of our daily routine that we usually take it for granted without stopping to think about what a tremendous value it is. Granted, the cost of electricity has increased over the years along with everything else. But its cost has not gone up as much as some other items.
Since 2013, the cost of rent, education, and cable/satellite TV have increased at rates of 2.8 percent or more each year. Electricity costs, however, have risen just 1.1 percent a year.
When it comes to value, electricity is a clear winner, and Rock Energy is always looking for ways to work with you to make its value even better. We promote energy efficiency and technology designed to give you more control over your energy use, so you can live within your budget.
That’s going to become more important as our use of digital devices and Internet-connected technologies increases. The average home now has 10 Wi-Fi connected devices. That number is expected to explode to 50 by 2020. Technology and the gateways that keep it working use electricity, so you’ll continue to rely on Rock Energy to power your lives.
We’re always working to provide service that’s reliable, keep it affordable, and make it even more valuable to our members—you, your family, and your neighbors.
