The funds for the Classroom Technology Awards grants sponsored by Wake Electric come from Wake Electric members who agree to round up their electric bill to the nearest whole dollar through the Operation RoundUp program. For example, if the bill is $190.91 – the bill will be rounded up 9 cents to $191.00. These pennies add up to major dollars.
