More HEMC Cooperative Solar blocks available now!

Posted: March 24, 2018

Green Power EMC, the renewable energy supplier for 38 Georgia Electric Membership Corporations (EMCs), and Silicon Ranch, one of the nation’s largest independent solar power producers, have officially dedicated a 52-Megawatt (MWAC) solar energy plant in Jeff Davis County, Georgia. This 480-acre facility features technology that allows more than 630,000 solar panels to track the sun from east to west and will provide enough low-cost, renewable power to help serve more than 8,500 EMC households annually.

As a result, members can enjoy the benefits of solar energy without the costs and complications of rooftop solar panels. Habersham EMC takes on the risk of ownership and maintenance, while YOU receive your share of the sun without the hassle! Here’s how it works:

For $25 per month for each solar energy block (maximum of 2 blocks per member), you will receive credit on your monthly bill for the kilowatt hours generated by your solar energy block(s). If you use fewer kilowatt hours during the billing period than the kilowatt hours generated by your solar energy block(s), you will receive credit for the excess energy (per Habersham EMC’s Net Energy Metering Service Schedule (Rider NM).

HEMC Cooperative Solar program subscriptions are limited and participation is available on a first-come, first-serve basis.  To determine if the program is suited for their specific needs, consumers should contact Habersham EMC online, or by phone: (706)754-2114, (706)865-4362 or (800)640-6812.
