Products & Services
Through Green Power EMC, we give YOU the power to help the environment. Since 2003, our nonprofit corporation has offered customers of participating Georgia electric cooperatives the opportunity to support cleaner, renewable energy to supply a portion of their electric needs Green Power EMC utilizes “green” resources such as biomass, solar, wind, and water to generate electricity. We were the first in Georgia to invite our consumers to choose how some of their electricity is produced. Since inception, Green Power EMC has generated over 137,786,825 kilowatt-hours of green energy, providing the same environmental benefits as taking 136,618 cars off Georgia roads, or planting 194.680 acres in trees.

Energy Efficiency In The Kitchen
- Set the refrigerator temperature between 36 and 40 degrees Fahrenheit, the freezer no lower than 0 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Open the doors as seldom as possible, closing them quickly.
- Cool foods to room temperature before placing them in the refrigerator unless otherwise noted in the recipe.
- Defrost manual refrigerators when the frost is ¼ inch thick.
- If you do not need a second refrigerator, then unplug it and have the door removed.
- Keep condenser coils clean.
- Keep the freezer portion full. This will help you to retain cold air as you open and close the door.
- Make sure you get everything out the first time you open the door. This will help to eliminate unnecessary door openings.
