Commitment to Community

Powering good in our neighborhood.

Since 1938, Cobb EMC has worked to be a responsible corporate citizen and to improve the quality of life in the communities we serve. Local nonprofits rely on Cobb EMC's support, but the commitment of Cobb EMC employees who donate their time and talents is just as essential.

Cobb EMC is equally dedicated to promoting local communities through civic clubs and chambers of commerce. Employees serve in leadership roles and lend their expertise to help these organizations thrive for the good of the communities in which we – and our members – live. Plus, we have a team dedicated to energizing large employers and encouraging investment and job growth in our region.
