    Navarro County Electric Cooperative


    One of the main characteristics of the Navarro County Electric Cooperative family is their relationship with the communities that they serve. They feel they have a responsibility to the members in their service area that goes beyond just providing reliable electric power. This is why they are proud to sponsor the exciting community service program called Operation Round-Up.

    Simply stated, Operation Round-Up gathers voluntary contributions from participating co-op consumers by œrounding up their monthly bills to the next dollar. For example, a consumers monthly bill of $32.73 would be automatically rounded up to $33.00, with the additional 27 cents going to the Operation Round-Up fund - resulting in an average donation of roughly six dollars ($6.00) per year, which will be distributed to worthy Cooperative service area charitable causes.

    Operation Round- Up helps co-op consumers reach out to worthy causes in their communities and work together to help others. What is most rewarding about the concept of Operation Round-Up is that it is an extension of the concept of neighbor helping neighbor that built the electric cooperative.
