Jackson Electric Membership Corporation was founded in 1938 when a group of business and community leaders came together with a vision for a better life for their community – one that included the advantages electricity could provide. Jackson EMC has grown to become the largest electric cooperative in Georgia, and one of the largest in the nation. Jackson EMC has over 14,000 miles of distribution lines serving more than 230,000 meters across 10 counties in Northeast Georgia. The not-for-profit electric cooperative has grown due to reliable electric supply, personal service, high member satisfaction and competitive rates (average rates run 17% below the national average).
Jackson Electric Membership Corporation exceeds member expectations with reliable, courteous and personalized service. Jackson EMC provides personalized service through a core value system focused on providing outstanding service to members, creating a rewarding work environment for employees, being involved in the community, working efficiently, engaging in open and honest communication, and fostering a spirit of cooperation.
