Our Mission

Cobb EMC is a distribution cooperative, which means we do not generate power. We purchase electricity through several different suppliers and power purchase agreements. Economic decisions are made hourly to ensure the lowest cost resources are being used. After purchase, the power is transmitted across high-voltage lines and onto our distribution system.

Cobb EMC relies on a diversified mix of energy sources to provide reliable, safe and affordable electricity. We're looking out for the future and our environment. We’ve diversified our generation mix and expanded our renewable energy portfolio.
