 Current Programs

Programs that promote insulation, weather stripping, double-pane windows and doors and energy efficient lights and appliances are common at Electric Membership Corporations (EMCs) throughout Georgia.
     In addition, Georgia’s EMCs have promoted load management programs that have resulted in the placement of tens of thousands of radio-controlled switches on air conditioners, water heating and irrigation equipment and other devices to help reduce electrical load during hours of peak demand.  These systems, taken together, represent an investment of millions of dollars. 
     Load management switches provide  EMCs with the capability of substantially reducing peak electrical load, thus eliminating the need for that same amount of power to be produced or procured elsewhere.
