Only temporarily slowed by Hurricane Florence, we continue to expand the Roanoke Connect network to make Smart Grid and Internet services available to Roanoke Electric Cooperative's member-owners. We are pleased to report that Segment 24 is the seventh segment that is now functional and for which we are scheduling home installations. Segment 24 covers Hill Lane Road in Eure and sections of US Hwy 13 S and Corner High Road. It joins Segments 1, 2, 3, 4, 8 and 9 as live and capable of helping you lower your energy bills and increase your connectivity. We've got work on additional segments under way, so stay tuned for new updates in the weeks ahead.
We are delighted to let you know that we are beginning to have a backlog in scheduling installations for Smart Grid and Internet connections for our member-owners. We encourage you to contact us to ensure you are on the list to be installed as soon as our services are available in more areas.
Please check back next week for additional information. Have a safe and enjoyable Labor Day holiday.
