The new corporate headquarters of the Roanoke Electric Cooperative is
located on 17.79 acres in Ahoskie, North Carolina. Completed in August
2009, the new headquarters includes a 13,824-square-foot office area
connected to a 13,824-square-foot warehouse with a 3,897-square-foot
shop area and 1,400-square-foot wash bay.
The new site is centrally located in the cooperative's service area,
which provides significant operational efficiencies for serving the
entire membership. The new site was chosen after an extensive analysis
to find a location that met Roanoke Electric Cooperative's requirement
of 15 to 20 acres of reasonably-priced land, was free of the threat of
flooding and draining issues, had water and sewer access, and provided
access to a major highway for accessibility to the cooperative's
members, suppliers, and employees.
The Roanoke Electric Cooperative services approximately 16,000 meters
and the corporate headquarters employs 60 people.
