What is Operation Round Up?
One of the Seven Cooperative Principles that provide the guidelines by which cooperatives put their values into practice is Commitment to Community. One of the ways that Paulding Putnam Electric Cooperative shows a Commitment to Community is through the Operation Round Up program. Operation Round Up® is a unique voluntary program designed to provide financial assistance to worthwhile projects and charities in our surrounding communities.
Operations Round Up® works like this: The cooperative will round up electric bills of participating members to the next dollar. For example, if your bill is $41.70, it would be “rounded up” to $42. Your maximum contribution per year could be $11.88, but generally will be less than that, averaging $6 per year. Your contribution is tax deductible and the funds are administered by the PPEC Trust Board, which is made up of members from throughout our service territory. By joining this program you are continuing the “neighbor helping neighbor” concept that founded the cooperative years ago.
