With an ever-changing world, Noble REMC’s Operation Round Up program continues to give back to make sure our community’s projects remain successful. 

The co-op is grateful for the more than 80% of members who participate in the program, allowing their electric bills to be rounded up to the nearest dollar each month. These cents are then kept locally through community grants given each quarter.
