Over the past weekend, a handful of Roseville utility customers reported receiving calls from someone claiming to be from Roseville Electric, stating they were on their way to disconnect the electricity due to a delinquent bill. This was a scam. Here's how to tell a real Roseville utility bill notice from a scam attempt.
Roseville Electric will not be available to host the LED Holiday Light Exchange at RCONA's Santa in the Park at Mahany Park on Saturday, Dec. 3.
Roseville Electric apologizes for having to cancel its attendance, but it's not likely there will be holiday lights available for exchange at that time due to program popularity.
"It's unfortunate, but it's a good problem to have," said Roseville Electric's Vonette McCauley. "Roseville Electric increased the number of lights available this year and already we are half way through the inventory. At this rate, our limited supply will be gone by mid December."
Because supplies are limited, Roseville Electric encourages customers wanting to participate to get to the Utility Exploration Center soon.
The Santa in the Park event is 3 p.m. - 6 p.m., Dec. 14 at Mahany Park and Dec. 15 at Maidu Park. In addition to Santa, there will be cookies, punch, music, carolers and crafts to enjoy.
RCONA is also collecting non-perishable canned food items for the Placer Food Bank.

A recent theft of cooper, valued at $30, will cost Roseville Electric thousands to replace.
Thieves chopped into equipment at the corner of Cirby Way and Rocky Ridge Drive between 6 a.m. and 6:30 a.m., September 25 to get to cooper wire. Cooper is stolen from utilities and taken to recyclers for cash. There are many laws in place to keep recyclers from accepting stolen materials, but there is a black market.

Since 2007, the Roseville Energy Park has been using state-of-the-art combined cycle technology to generate approximately 40 percent of the power that Roseville residents and businesses need. Locally generated power has kept prices stable for our customers and enhanced the area’s distribution reliability.
Roseville Electric receives approximately 16 percent of its electricity from hydroelectric resources in northern California. In years with lower than average precipitation, the utility must purchase additional power in the energy market to make up for energy it did not receive. Due to the recent lower than average rainfall, utility customers will see a hydroelectric adjustment on their bills beginning July 1 and continuing through June 30, 2014. The adjustment will account for approximately 1 percent of the total energy bill. For more information please visit www.roseville.ca.us/rates or call (916) 79-POWER.

Roseville Electric crews put the finishing touches on the Centennial Clock earlier this week, permanently sealing the base which houses the community-owned utility's time capsules.
The time capsule holds tools, equipment, reports and other mementos that demonstrate what it was like to work at the electric utility in 2012. The capsule is slated to be reopened in 25 years - Roseville Electric's 125th anniversary.

There will not be a hydroelectric surcharge collected on customer's bills this fiscal year because Roseville Electric's hydroelectric facilities received more than average precipitation.
The surcharge was created to generate additional funds needed to cover the extra costs of having to purchase electricity to make up for energy that could not be produced by dams due to lower than average precipitation levels.
