Give the Gift of Electricity This Year

Dec. 8, 2015

If you're searching for the perfect gift, REC has a great solution. Give the gift of electricity when you purchase a gift certificate for a friend or family member this holiday season.

"Anyone can purchase an electricity gift certificate from REC," said Kris Sieber, director of member services at the Cooperative. "It’s a popular option for people who want to give a gift that could really make a difference to someone."

People purchase electricity gift certificates from REC each year. The gift certificate is applied to the REC member’s account and that means they don’t have to pay an electric bill until the gift runs out.

"Depending on the amount someone gives, the gift could last for several months," added Sieber. "If someone gives a $250 gift, and that person has an average electric bill of $125, then their electric bill is taken care of for two months. What a great gift!"

REC gift certificate forms can be printed from the Cooperative's website, www.myrec.coop. Completed forms should be returned to one of REC's offices, or by mail. For more information please call, 1-800-552-3904.

With its general office in Fredericksburg, the Cooperative operates and maintains more than 16,000 miles of power lines through its service area, which ranges from the Blue Ridge Mountains to the tidal waters of the Chesapeake Bay.
