Each month, the REMC rounds up the electric bills of participating members to the next dollar. The extra few cents goes into a fund overseen by a board of trustees (who are all co-op members.) Then, these funds are distributed to local organizations in the form of grants.
Here are the most recent grant recipients:
Orleans Running Start: $2,500.
Southern Indiana Community Health Care: $2,220
Prevent Child Abuse Orange County: $1,800
