Surry-Yadkin Electric Membership Cooperative provides electric service to 26,600 residents and 250 businesses across Forsyth, Stokes, Surry, Wilkes and Yadkin counties. While Surry-Yadkin does offer a rebate and other resources to its members encouraging energy efficiency, the electric cooperative does not currently offer any type of financing for home energy improvements. Our goal is to promote and generate strong community support among Surry-Yadkin EMC members for the cooperative to develop an on-bill energy efficiency finance program.

The Energy Savings team is reaching out to community-based organizations, agencies and energy efficiency businesses to generate support for that effort. As economic data illustrates, an expanded on-bill finance program for Surry-Yadkin EMC members could provide substantial financial and economic benefits for the five-county service area.
