As a member of Green Power EMC, Central Georgia EMC utilizes electricity generated from biomass; specifically methane gas reclaimed from the Taylor County landfill. Landfill gas comes from the natural breakdown of wastes at the landfill site. The gas is collected and used to generate electricity. Typically the gas is wasted; in most landfills the gas is just burned off to prevent explosions.
Green Power can be purchased for only $4.50 per month.
The purchase is automatically added to your electric bill. Green power is available in “blocks” of 150 kilowatt-hours- about the amount of energy needed to operate a refrigerator for one month.
Georgia EMCs were the first in Georgia to invite our members to choose how some of their electricity is produced. Through Green Power EMC, Central Georgia EMC, along with 37 other EMCs in Georgia, offers members the opportunity to choose cleaner, renewable energy to supply a portion of their electric needs.
