Cumberland Valley Electric Coop members can now make money while spending less money on the electric bills.
Cumberland Valley Electric Coop is offering cash incentive (rebate) programs to its members for making their own homes more energy efficient. These programs have been set up to help make their members feel more comfortable at home while paying out less for their electric bills.

“The only way that homeowners can help themselves is to take advantage of any program that can help them have a smaller electric bill,” said Rich Prewitt, Cumberland Valley Electric Director of Member Services.

All of the programs benefit the member owners, not the company, Prewitt said. Cumberland Valley Electric, he explained, is a rural electrical co-op set up so that people out in the country and farms can get electric service similar to those in the surrounding cities.
