Solar Initiatives

Cobb EMC remains at the forefront of adding solar projects to our energy portfolio. Currently, we receive approximately 5 percent of the energy needed to serve our members through solar. Our focus on affordable, renewable energy options is what helps support rate stability and favorably position our co-op for future environmental regulations. We're continually looking for ways to diversify our energy mix and expand our energy portfolio in an effort to keep costs as low as possible for our members.

Sandhills solar project
Sandhills Solar Facility
Cobb EMC receives 111 megawatts – 77 percent of the facility’s output – from the Sandhills Solar Facility. The Taylor-county based facility is the largest solar facility operating east of the Mississippi River.
Azalea Solar Power Facility
Cobb EMC currently receives 7.7 megawatts from Azalea Solar in Washington County, one of the largest solar power plants in Georgia. The power purchase agreement will provide solar power generation for 25 years.
Sun Power for Schools
Sun Power for Schools
Lovinggood Middle School, Powder Springs, and the Cobb County Safety Village, Marietta, use small-scale solar power generating stations, installed by Cobb EMC and Sun Power for Schools, to teach students about renewable energy.
