Making An Impact
In addition to providing affordable electric service to our customers, Nolin RECC is committed to working for a positive change within the community. With your participation, our Operation Round-Up® program helps make that change a reality.
How It Works
Through Operation Round-Up®, Nolin RECC automatically rounds up a participating member’s electric bill to the next highest dollar. For example, through the program, a customer’s monthly bill of $65.25 would be automatically rounded up to $66.00. The additional 75 cents would go to the Operation Round-Up® fund. A non-profit board of directors made up of local citizens then allocates this money to a variety of worthy causes throughout the community. This program has donated over $240,000 to our local communities since 2006. Recent grants awarded went to Community Health Clinic, Central Valley Feed the Homeless, Hardin County Schools: Hardin County Day Treatment Center, LaRue County Schools: Preschool on College Street, Rachel’s Fun for Everyone Project, Mission Hope for Kids, Inc., Colonel John Hardin Chapter Sons of the American Revolution / Captain Jacob Van Meter Chapter Daughters of the American Revolution.
Operation Round-Up® is about local dollars meeting local needs in the local community. As a volunteer program, the success of Operation Round-Up® depends upon your participation. The more you’re involved, the more significant the community impact. If you would like more information about the Operation Round-Up® program, please call Nolin RECC at (270) 765-6153.
