Operation Round Up and Operation Round Up Plus
Habersham EMC began Operation Round Up in April 2002. Members voluntarily participating in Operation Round Up have their electric bill "rounded up" to the next dollar. Beginning in the summer of 2010, members were able to request that their bill be "rounded up" by a specified dollar amount of their choice (example: $1, $3, $5, etc.). Through these programs, financial assistance can be provided to worthwhile activities and worthy individuals in the HEMC service area of Habersham, Hall, Lumpkin, Rabun, Stephens and White counties.
As the bylaws stipulate, these funds may not be used to pay power bills or for political contributions.
