From REC Web site:

Operation Round Up lets REC members volunteer to have their electric bills rounded up to the next highest whole dollar, with the extra change dedicated to charitable causes. For example, a bill amount of $123.48 would be rounded up by 52 cents for a total due of $124. The additional 52 cents would be your Operation Round Up donation for that month. Though a donation of less than a dollar may not sound like much, this “small change” given on a regular basis can amount to big support for our local communities and is an easy way to show you care.

The purpose of Operation Round Up is to support individuals, school programs, philanthropic groups, non-profit organizations, rescue squads, fire departments and other deserving causes within REC’s service area. A board of directors reviews applications for support and decides how donations are made. The board is made up of seven REC members, who volunteer their time.

If you choose to participate, your electric bill will automatically be rounded up to the next whole dollar amount. We will also track your tax-deductible donations and provide an annual statement of your charitable contributions.
