Welcome to Roanoke Electric's official 75th Anniversary website!
2013 marks our 75th Anniversary. We are proud to share this historic milestone with our members and the communities we serve. As a cooperative owned by the people we serve, you are the reason we’re here today. We look forward to serving you for many years to come.
On May 21, 1936, President Franklin Roosevelt signed the Rural Electrification Act that energized the organization of electric cooperatives nationwide, and local people began raising utility poles across rural America.
We invite you to join us in celebrating 75 years of history by watching the history video, answering the trivia questions, enjoying the pictures and reading about our rich history. Please share your memories with us by emailing, as we’ll be regularly updating the Memories Page. We hope you enjoy the site.
