Do you plan to increase electric load?

Are you planning to purchase an electric vehicle and charge it at home or build an addition to your home? Perhaps add a fan or two to cool the livestock? Is your business buying new machinery that will use electricity?

If the answers to any of these questions are “yes,” please include Rock Energy Cooperative in the planning process.

Co-op facilities are designed to meet an individual member’s initial load requirement at the time service is started. If that load is significantly increased, the capacity of the present system might not be sufficient to handle it.

It Pays to be a Co-op Member!

As a Rock Energy member, you have equity in the co-op and financially benefit when revenue exceeds expenses in any given year. This year Rock Energy is distributing about $1 million in capital credits to current members on their May statements and about $200,000 to past members. Through the years, the co-op has paid back more than $18 million to past and current members.

Scholarship winners ready for life’s next chapter

The career aspirations of students receiving Rock Energy Cooperative Scholarships this year include biomedical engineer, broadcaster, chiropractor, dietitian, doctor, nurse, occupational therapist, pediatrician, personal trainer, and pharmacist. The students all possess the qualities that will help them succeed in their college studies as well as in their future professions.

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.

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.
