Central Dispatch CGEMC Newsletter | March 2020

Thinking about solar? Central Georgia EMC (CGEMC) makes it easy to add renewable energy at home, without installing or maintaining a single piece of equipment.

Cooperative Solar allows you to reap the benefits of clean energy by adding affordable and renewable solar power to your monthly energy mix. Even renters can participate!

Because our Cooperative Solar blocks have been in such high demand, CGEMC has expanded our solar energy portfolio to include solar fields across the state. This expansion comes with an increase in capacity, enhanced performance reliability, and no waiting list!

Cooperative Solar is available in 1-kilowatt (kW) blocks at an affordable $19 per month, per block. Best of all, you will receive a credit on your monthly bill for kilowatt-hours (kWh) generated by your solar energy block(s). Request your blocks today!

Unclaimed property

Visit our website for the list of unclaimed property from outstanding credit balances with CGEMC as of June 30, 2015.

We love our mini-members! We love to visit our community elementary, middle, and high schools! Programs range from safety, bucket truck visits, sources of energy, and even careers in energy.

Lead Lineperson Dean Earnhart and Member Engagement Coordinator Christy Chewning have been busy in the community. They represented CGEMC at both the Griffin Career Fair and Touch-a-Truck Day at M&S Magical Stars in Locust Grove.

The dreary day at M&S Magical Stars was made a bit brighter with CGEMC little lineperson hats. Thank you for inviting us!

Welcome to the team!

CGEMC is happy to introduce our newest crew member, Austin Atkinson!
