Central Dispatch CGEMC Newsletter | August 2019

A new school year is upon us and children of all ages are getting ready for a fresh year of learning! From kindergarten through college, students attend school to gain knowledge about a broad variety of subjects and learn new skills that will prepare them for the future. In a similar vein, Central Georgia EMC (CGEMC) is continually learning in order to advance technology that improves electric service, reliability, and safety. In turn, this enhances the quality of life for the customer-owners we serve in our local communities.

Consumer interest in green energy sources and renewables is at an all-time high. Nationally, the increasing use of solar, wind, and biomass energy is paving the way for new methods of generating and using electricity. As such, CGEMC continues to research how best to adjust our own energy portfolio. It is our responsibility to you and the world around us.

Whether it’s examining green energy options or exploring how emerging technologies can better serve our territory, for CGEMC, our “school year” is never over. We like to say that we “power future generation” and we are not simply referring to the production of electricity—we are focused on better powering a greener, technology-driven lifestyle for each and every one of our customer-owners.

KEEPING YOUR ACCOUNT SAFE

When you go online to pay your bills every month, you might use Google or another search tool to find each company's website. Rather than going directly to the company you're seeking, you may encounter several third-party bill pay websites, such as doxo.com. These sites may seem affiliated with your service companies, but they are not.

Doxo.com and other third-party companies are not authorized CGEMC agents. They often charge users a fee for the payment service, and there is no guarantee that they will pass through the payment before its due date. This could jeopardize your account status. For your safety and account security, always confirm you are at cgemc.com before you log in to make a payment.

We offer many convenient ways to pay, and all of them are free for our customer-owners. Payments made directly with CGEMC post to your account quickly and securely, ensuring your account remains in good status. And, again, we never charge a fee for making a payment online.

Ask adam!

Is there anything we can do to keep our energy use low in this hot weather?

There are several small but important adjustments that can make a big difference.

  1. Did you know your ceiling air register should actually blow towards the outer wall, rather than towards the inside of the room? The air is meant to flow toward the hottest areas, keeping the heat outdoors.
  2. The direction of your blinds matters. Window blinds that face downward will allow more sun in than ones that are angled upward. The sunny spots on your floor are increased areas of heat that your A/C must cool down.
  3. Most consumers leave ceiling fans on all day during hot weather. Did you know that fans only cool skin temperature, not room temperature? When you are not in the room, turn off the fan to save energy.
