CHELCO's Operation Round Up (ORU)
Your small change can make a big impact! Join Operation Round Up and help children, education programs, and many other great causes in our community!
Beginning September 2018, CHELCO members may choose to "round-up" their monthly electric bill to the next dollar amount. This small change will be used to fund grants to non-profit organizations that provide support to a wide-range of causes including, among other things, at-risk children, education and environmental programs, public health and safety, basic human needs, cultural events and the arts.
Your donation each month may be as little as $0.01 but never more than $0.99. For example, if your bill is $82.48, it will be rounded up to $83.00. Your donated $0.52, along with the donated change of fellow CHELCO members, will be used to support charitable and service organizations that impact the quality of life for those in our community. On average, each participant can expect to give about $6 per year.
Current CHELCO members can sign-up now though bill round-up will not begin until January 2019. Simply click on the button below; or, download the form on the bottom of this page and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org; or, send it in with your monthly bill payment; or, drop it off at any area office or drop-box; or, call (800) 342-0990.
New members joining CHELCO in January 2019 and beyond will join ORU upon their request for service unless they choose to opt-out. This option will be highlighted and explained during their application process.
Operation Round Up is strictly voluntary and a participant may opt-out at any time by filling out an opt-out button below; or, calling (800) 342-0990.
