Cobb EMC is committed to enhancing our smart grid technology to provide reliable electricity to our member-consumers. Our smart grid includes smart meters, a fiber-optic network for fast and secure communications from the field to the office, and one of the most technologically advanced power control systems in the world.

Benefits of Smart Grid Technology

  • Reduced outages by 25% percent over the last 10 years
  • 99.99% service reliability
  • Higher reliability – ranked second in the nation for reliable power (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers)
  • Faster outage restoration – ranked first in the nation for restoring outages quickly (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers)
  • More efficient member service and support, and lower operating costs

Smart Meters

Smart meters read up-to-the-minute energy use information and transmit hourly meter readings through two-way communications. This allows our power control team to know exactly when a meter on our system loses power. In many cases, we’re able to diagnose the problem and restore power immediately – all from our campus – through automation.

Smart meters also allow you to track electricity use by the hour so you can make smart energy decisions.

Innovative Technology

Cobb EMC strives to bring you innovation and continual improvement. We’re implementing new technology – underground substations and drones – so we can deliver the reliable electricity you expect.
