Springtime flooding can pose electrical hazards

As the spring snow melt causes flooding in many yards, homes, and basements, Rock Energy Cooperative reminds members that water and electricity don't mix.

If you need your electric and/or natural gas service disconnected for emergency reasons, call us at 866-752-4550. We will respond anytime during the day or night without charge. Reconnection during normal business hours, 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday, also is free. If reconnection is requested after hours, there will be a trip charge.

Students can develop leadership skills

Understanding the cooperative difference and identifying traits of leaders are just two of the topics that will highlight the Wisconsin Energy Cooperative Association Youth Leadership Congress.

The conference, co-sponsored by Wisconsin’s energy cooperatives and the University of Wisconsin–River Falls, is scheduled for July 24–26 on the UW–River Falls campus.

Rock Energy Cooperative will pay for up to four high school students to attend the sessions. Applicants must be current freshmen, sophomores, or juniors who reside in the co-op’s service territory.
