Round Up Program

Since OVEC’s inception, we have been dedicated to improving the quality of life of people in our service area. We do this by not only providing affordable electric service to our members, but also by our active involvement in a number of important endeavors.

One of the most rewarding community efforts in which we participate has been the Operation Round Up® program. Operation Round Up® has been an incredibly successful way in which we have been able to help organizations and individuals in our area. Through Operation Round Up®, we round up participating member’s electric bills to the next highest dollar. For example, a member’s monthly bill of $52.73 would be automatically rounded up to $53.00, with the additional 27 cents going to the Operation Round Up® Fund. On an annual basis, participating members donate roughly six dollars for each participating customer – and that pool of money is then allocated to a variety of worthy causes throughout our service area. This tax-deductible opportunity extends to our members and non-members as well.

If you live in our service territory, have a need and would like to apply for funds in the Operation Round Up® program, simply click the Round Up Application button and print an application. You may also call our office (660-679-3131 Ext 5548) to request one be sent to you by mail or come in and pick one up at one of our locations.  Applications can be emailed to or faxed to 660-679-3142.
