The Surry-Yadkin Electric Membership Corp. serves 26,600 residents and 250 businesses across Forsyth, Stokes, Surry, Wilkes and Yadkin counties in North Carolina. While Surry-Yadkin offers a rebate and other resources to encourage its members to save energy. The co-op does not currently offer any type of financing for home energy efficiency improvements.

Appalachian Voices’ goal is to promote and generate strong community support among Surry-Yadkin members for the co-op to develop an on-bill energy efficiency finance program.

To get involved, contact Lauren Essick, (828) 262-1500, or lauren [at]

Our Energy Savings team is reaching out to community 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 members could provide substantial financial and economic benefits for the five-county service area.
