Your Energy

Green Power

Green Power EMC offers Tri-County EMC members the opportunity to support cleaner, renewable energy created from resources here in Georgia where we live, work and play. By selecting Green Power, you can choose how some or all of the energy used in your home is generated.

Green Power EMC uses biomass to generate environmentally friendly energy. The program was created by thirteen Georgia cooperatives, with input from numerous government agencies and environmental awareness groups. Green Power EMC is recognized as a participant in the Environmental Protection Agency's Landfill Methane Outreach Program.

This "green" energy is available in subscription blocks of 150 kilowatt-hours per month. Because the costs to create renewable electricity are higher than those of traditional electric generation, each block of green power costs $4.00, about 2.6 cents per kWh, above your applicable Tri-County EMC rate. A portion of all Green Power EMC energy sales goes to support continued growth of energy generated from these cleaner resources.

There are a limited amount of green power blocks available for business and commercial customers. As a green power subscriber, you will be able to promote your company as a Green Power EMC business, demonstrating your concern for the environment to your own customers. Certain federal government designations are available for business meeting minimum requirements for green energy usage.
