We're Headed Toward a Clean Energy Future

Cobb EMC believes in the power of a clean energy future. For more than 10 years, we've been investing in sustainable technology that supports reliability and affordability for our members. And, in the last 5 years we have reduced our carbon emissions by 33%. We're one of the few electric co-ops in the nation with a solar and battery storage system on site and we offer diversified renewable energy sources in our portfolio.

 

Our 2030 Clean Energy Goal

It’s our responsibility as your neighbor and your co-op to do our part to protect our environment and community. That's why we have a goal to reduce carbon emissions by 75% and to increase our renewable energy portfolio by 200% by 2030. We will reach our clean energy goals without passing additional costs on to our members.

 

Programs and Resources

We also make it easy for members to do their part for the environment, so that together we can create a cleaner community for everyone.
