Cooperation among cooperatives
One of our guiding principles is "Cooperation Among Cooperatives." When the call for help goes out, we respond. The storms from January 11 hit hard for Blue Ridge Mountain Electric Cooperative, with over 14,000 meters without service.
CGEMC crews stepped up to lend a hand to restore power. We are proud of our employees' cooperative spirit!
