Members of Steuben County REMC recently awarded $18,000 to two local organizations through the cooperative’s Operation Round Up fund. Over 75% of our members round up their electric bills to the nearest dollar. The average contribution by a member per year is $6 with a max contribution of $11.88. These pennies donated by members like you add up to make a huge impact on the local community. 

This quarter’s grantees are:

  • The Vine Early Learning Center for furnishing The Vine
  • Steuben County Economic Development Corporation for project prospect mining.
