At Union Power, we’re driven by a sense of mission and purpose. Our team feels a strong connection to our community and our members because we live here, too.
While many of our charitable, community-focused programs and activities, such as fundraisers for Hospice and food drives, ramp up this time of year, we have several programs and services in place to help our members year-round. We’d like to remind you about some of these offerings in hopes you’ll find them beneficial.
We hope you’ll take advantage of the Union Power Cooperative mobile app, an app that empowers you to monitor, manage, and pay your energy bill conveniently through your phone. Another service we offer is Pre-Pay, which is intended to help budget your monthly energy costs. Union Power members can pay for electricity before it’s used, then use the electricity until the credit expires. During the time period paid for, you’ll receive regular feedback on your balance. We also offer energy efficiency programs to save you money and energy, which can be found on our website at union-power.com.
By simply choosing to donate Power Bucks to a member in need, you can help others right here in our community. Through members’ generous donations over the last year, we’ve been able to give more than $8,000 to those in need. To participate in our Power Bucks program, please call 704-289-3145 to speak to a customer service representative who can apply the donation to the member’s account of your choice.
In addition to helping members save today, we’re focusing on the future. In recent years, Union Power has been able to adjust our fuel mix by incorporating more renewables. We’ve spent the past decade reducing our dependence on carbon-intensive power generation, and as a result, our current fuel mix is more than 60% carbon-free. Along with other cooperatives in the state, we are working toward our vision for a Brighter Future, a long-term road map for providing sustainable, affordable energy; reliability and innovation; and continued local community support. We share the goal of a 50% reduction in carbon emissions from 2005 levels by 2030 and net-zero carbon emissions by 2050.
