Asheboro Event Has Been Canceled.

Updated: Wednesday, September 28, 2022

This Friday, September 30, Randolph EMC and the North Carolina Zoo had scheduled a Drive Electric event to introduce the public to electric vehicles and educate members about REMC’s special time-of-use rate for home charging.

Because of anticipated adverse weather conditions from Hurricane Ian, Randolph EMC and the North Carolina Zoo regrettably must cancel this open-air event.

We appreciate your interest in this event, and forward to an outstanding Drive Electric event next year in September 2023.

We will keep you updated with future plans.
