CPR training saves co-worker's life

Elise Ehrensing was in the right place at the right time when her heart stopped beating.

The right place was Rock Energy Cooperative’s office in South Beloit, where employees have been trained in CPR and first aid annually for at least the past 30 years. The timing was right because about a month earlier she had been promoted from part-time member services representative to full-time status.

Some billing due dates changing

Some Rock Energy Cooperative members will see a change in their billing due date starting in January.

If your bill is now due on the 26th or 27th of the month, your new due date will be on the 28th. Members who are signed up for Auto Pay will see funds transferred on the 28th of each month.

Currently, the co-op sends bills to members at various dates throughout each month. Beginning in January, the number of billing dates will be reduced, resulting in a more efficient process.

Add safety to your holiday traditions

For millions of people every year, the holiday season comes with traditions of festive lights and decorations, extraordinary foods, and lavish parties.

Unfortunately, time-honored traditions can easily end in tragedy if precautions are not taken. Make a point to take care of yourself and those you love by taking time to decorate safely—without skipping any safety steps.

Scholarships offered to high school seniors

Rock Energy Cooperative again is offering scholarships of $500 to graduating high school seniors who enroll at an accredited school.

Students whose parents or guardians are members of Rock Energy are eligible to apply. In other words, you can apply if your household receives electricity or natural gas from the co-op.

Our independent scholarship committee will judge applicants based on general merit, cooperation, leadership abilities, financial need, and class ranking.
