Have a safe Memorial Day weekend!

Rock Energy Cooperative offices will be closed on Monday, May 27, in observance of Memorial Day. We will reopen at 7:30 a.m. Tuesday, May 28. Members can make payments in the drop boxes at both offices throughout the holiday weekend. Even though our offices are closed, standby crews are always available 24 hours a day. If you need to report a power outage, please call 866-752-4550.

Know the ground rules: Call 811 before digging

More than 40 percent of homeowners who plan to dig for do-it-yourself projects will put themselves and others at risk by not calling 811, a national survey found. In observance of National Safe Digging Month in April, Rock Energy Cooperative urges all members to call 811 before every digging project so underground utilities can be marked.

Digging without knowing the approximate location can result in service disruptions, costly repairs, serious injuries, and even death if gas, electric, communications, water, and sewer lines are damaged.

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.
