LAST CHANCE TO CLAIM LED REBATES
If you purchased Energy Star screw-in LED lightbulbs in 2017, you have until the end of February to file for a rebate. As a Boone REMC member, you are eligible for up to $3 per bulb on up to 30 bulbs purchased between Jan. 1 and Dec. 31, 2017. Learn more about available energy efficiency rebates from the POWER MOVES program online at www.bremc.com/saving-energy/.
RATE ADJUSTMENT AHEAD
A recent cost-of-service study has prompted the Boone REMC Board of Directors to approve an overall 1.2 percent rate increase. This will go into effect with April consumption and be reflected on May bills. The last time Boone REMC members experienced an increase to base rates was in 2007. As a member-owned, not-for-profit cooperative, we strive to be proactive in our planning, offer education on our energy efficiency programs, and maintain the reliability, quality, and integrity of our system.
NOW ACCEPTING AMERICAN EXPRESS
Boone REMC members can now pay their electric bills with American Express cards. Previously, BREMC was only able to accept MasterCard, Visa, and Discover. Payments can be made at the office, over the phone, by mail, via the drive-through drop box, or using any of the online payment methods (SmartHub, PayNow, or Auto Pay).
