Announcing winners of paperless billing promotion

Posted on Mar 29 2024 in Boone REMC

We are happy to have gained more than 2,500 enrollments in paperless billing during our recent promotion!

All accounts enrolled in paperless billing were entered into a drawing for two $500 bill credits. The winners were:

Going paperless helps your electric cooperative hold down costs by reducing the amount of money we must spend on printing and postage and supports the environment by reducing paper waste. Thank you for doing your part!


Besides going paperless, you can support the environment through renewable energy options.

  • Our EnviroWatts Green Power Rate provides members with an option to support alternative energy by paying $0.015 cents more per kilowatt-hour in addition to our standard rate. The premium charged for EnviroWatts helps fund the promotion of renewable sources such as landfill gas and wind. Participation may be limited at the discretion of our wholesale power provider and available resources. (Residential members only.)
  • Co-op Solar
    is a community solar program through which members can purchase blocks of solar power. There’s no equipment to purchase or maintain and nothing to install. Each block, which is estimated to produce an average of 43 kilowatt-hours per month, costs an additional $0.42 per month. (Residential members only.)
  • Net Metering
    is available for members with distributed generation resources. If these resources produce excess energy, it is added to a bank of kilowatt-hours for the account; the bank can be used in future billing periods to offset the energy that would have to be otherwise purchased. Net metering applies only to avoided power purchases from and transmission through the bulk power system. Energy delivery charges are still applicable for all energy delivered to the service location.


As dependence on electricity increases, we remain focused on providing our members with reliable, affordable energy — and that’s why fuel diversity is essential. Our diverse fuel mix helps us balance environmental stewardship with affordability and reliability.

Fuel mix is updated each summer to reflect the previous year’s data.
