How do Rock Energy Cooperative rates compare?

At Rock Energy Cooperative, we get questions from our members on how our rates stack up against neighboring utility providers. We've broken out the numbers in order for you to see exactly where our rates fall.

The truth is Rock's rates are on the lower end, when you compare us to our neighbors. Our mission will always be to deliver safe, reliable gas and electric services to our members at the best possible price.

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.

Maintaining reliability vital as generation sources change

Many aspects of the energy industry have evolved in recent years, but perhaps the biggest change is occurring in the resources used to produce your electricity.

The mix of energy sources for generating electricity in the United States has changed over time, especially in recent years. Natural gas and renewable energy sources like wind and solar account for an increasing share of U.S. electricity generation, while coal-fired electricity generation has declined.
