FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:


Will you discount my bill?
Because Tri-County EMC is a not-for-profit cooperative, any discounts would mean other members would have to shoulder that cost. We will work with our members on payment arrangements as needed, but we are not able to discount bills.

My usage has increased. Can you help me?
If your residential account has seen increased energy use, it could be a result of having more people at home. If you have usage you can’t explain, we have several tools to help, even though we have suspended onsite energy audits. We have multiple virtual energy audit tools available at https://www.tri-countyemc.com/energy-calculator.cms. Our energy audit team is also available to assist by telephone.

I am quarantining, have tested positive for COVID-19, or have COVID-19 symptoms, but I need to make a cash payment. What can I do?
If you have tested positive for coronavirus, are quarantined, or if you are currently experiencing COVID symptoms, PLEASE DO NOT VISIT OUR OFFICE. Instead, please call a customer service representative at 478.986.8100 or 1.866.254.8100. We will help you find a payment arrangement that does not require you to leave your home.

I lost my income due to COVID-19. Where can I find energy assistance to help pay my bill?
Through the CARES Act, additional energy assistance funds were released through LIHEAP. For more information, please contact one of the organizations listed to the right based on the county you live in.
