Our Service and Reliability

Cobb EMC’s key to superior reliability is offering service from a variety of sources. Each of our more than 170 distribution circuits is tied in with others so, if necessary, power can be delivered from an adjoining circuit.

Large industrial/commercial members also benefit from the Integrated Transmission System (ITS), which makes backup equipment from all suppliers in the state available (regardless of ownership) in the event of an emergency.

We offer a variety of standard voltages, both single-phase and three-phase, to meet the requirements of any project. Businesses may choose either overhead or underground service. Both offer switching capabilities for backup sources of power. Underground service has a looped distribution system so our crews can perform work on either side of the loop.

Cobb EMC’s state-of-the-art Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) system helps us achieve consistent reliability. Our Power Control technicians monitor all substations 24/7. They are able to perform functions remotely and to instantly know the operating condition of equipment. This means we can preventatively maintain the system and efficiently respond to abnormal conditions, if they occur, without lost time from site visits or circuit overloads.

 

Economic development

We have always been involved in economic development. 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.

We work with local and state agencies and Chambers of Commerce within our five-county service area to attract businesses and show them the benefits of running their company in our community. Our employees are involved in the Cobb Chamber's SelectCobb program as well as the Cherokee Office of Economic Development's Cherokee by Choice program.

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.

    Large power users may choose their supplier for new facility construction through the Georgia Legislature’s Georgia Territorial Electric Service Act (GTESA) of 1973. With a connected load of over 900 kilowatts or greater, you may have a choice! Companies interested in learning more about available sites and buildings in Georgia can use Georgia EMC's Georgia Center for Site Selection.
