 Green Power EMC


   Georgia’s Electric Membership Corporations (EMCs) pioneered the sale of electric power from renewable sources with the formation of Green Power EMC in 2001. This electric cooperative was formed to provide a source of renewable or “green” energy for the state’s EMCs. It was the first renewable energy program in the state.  
    Today, 38 EMCs are members of the Green Power EMC cooperative and are making available to their retail consumers “green power” produced by solar, landfill gas, wood waste, and small hydroelectric projects.
    Green Power EMC currently has renewable generating resources capable of producing about 52 megawatts of electricity, and will add more in the near future.
