Economic Development

Cobb EMC works with local & state agencies to attract businesses and help our economy grow.

Affordable and reliable electricity is a key ingredient for a successful economy. At Cobb EMC, we understand the importance of building powerful connections and having a place for businesses and families to call home. It’s good for our community and reflects on one of our seven cooperative principles—to be a good corporate citizen. Businesses of every size move to our service area and help make our community a better place to live, work and play while contributing to job creation and job retention. Power requirements are an important part of running a business.

At Cobb EMC, we provide both small commercial and large power members of all industries the most technologically advanced products and services available. Our 24/7 Power Control Center, personalized service (site-specific demographic profile information, site planning, etc.) and customized rate structures deliver economical, reliable service to your business.

From developing the workforce of the future to providing the best products and services available, Cobb EMC is more than your electric provider. We’re your community partner in economic development.
