The Power of Change
Sign Me Up for ORU


You can have a powerful impact on the lives of your neighbors in one of the easiest ways possible - The Power of Change.

Each month, thousands of Rappahannock Electric Cooperative members voluntarily round up their electric bills to the next whole dollar. That extra change is then invested back into your community.

It's now easier than ever to make a difference. You can round up your bill
to the
nearest dollar each month or donate a fixed amount each month.

You also can make a one-time donation through your

It's simple! Just allow REC to round up your monthly electric bill to the next whole dollar.

That's it! Through The Power of Change, you're now part of a movement to help make our community a better place to live, work and play.

Daja, Louisa Arts Center, Camp Participant

Daja - Louisa Arts Center, Camp Participant - "Singing is my favorite thing to do. I usually don't get out much, so being able to be here where I can learn to sing has been the best experience. Thank you for doing this for me."

Carol Lee, Shining Hands, Founder and Executive Director

Carol Lee - Shining Hands, Founder & Executive Director - "I am extremely thankful to REC members who contribute to The Power of Change and round up a few extra pennies each month. It seems like such a small thing to do, but it makes a huge difference in the lives of the children we're helping. It makes a difference for our organization and volunteers to know that people care about what they're doing."
