Central Georgia Electric Membership Corporation seeks to provide its members with the best electric service possible, and at the lowest cost consistent with sound economy and good management. In some cases, Cooperative members may become interested in installing their own electric power generation equipment. In these cases, Central Georgia EMC stands ready to work with its members to ensure that their generation equipment is installed in a proper and safe manner, and in accordance with all applicable codes, standards, regulations, laws and insurance requirements. In most of these cases, members will need to coordinate the installation and approval of their electric power generator with the local code inspection authority.
