CEO Message to Members
This holiday season will likely be unlike any other, closing out a year unlike any other in our lifetimes.
As we enter a new year, the Roanoke Electric team wishes you endurance, peace, health, and as much happiness as you can muster.
On behalf of the co-op team, I also want to thank you for your patience and understanding, as we continue to navigate the changes and challenges ushered in by the coronavirus pandemic.
Throughout this year, I’ve been encouraged by the many ways in which we as a community came together and supported each other.
While the pandemic’s lasting impact will likely be felt for many years to come, the co-op team looks forward to the new year and hopefully brighter days.
Despite some of the dark realities of our “new normal,” it is my hope that we all use this time of reflection to learn from and take stock of our silver linings.
Roanoke Electric has emerged more resilient than ever before. And, as your trusted energy partner, we are grateful for the opportunity to continue serving you.
Wishing you all the best this holiday season and in the new year!
- Curtis Wynn, President & CEO of Roanoke Electric Cooperative.
