If you or a family member requires life-support equipment, have back up plans in case of prolonged power outages.

NGEMC recycles CFLs

NGEMC offices offer a safe disposal option for CFLs with recycling bins at all of our area offices—Calhoun, Dalton, Fort Oglethorpe and Trion.

CFLs are safe to use, can last up to 10 times longer than incandescent light bulbs and are 75 percent more energy efficient. CFLs do contain a very small amount of mercury—only enough to fit on the tip of a ballpoint pen. Mercury in CFLs allows the bulb to be an efficient light source.

North Georgia EMC warns of phone scam

North Georgia EMC has had recent reports of a telephone scam in which the caller claims to be a representative or a collection agent from a local power company. The caller states that the bill is past due and the account is subject to disconnection unless payment can be made immediately by wire transfer or credit card. In at least two reported incidents, the caller answered a consumer’s return phone calls as North Georgia EMC and Georgia Power.  North Georgia EMC representatives never call customers asking for credit card information.

Electric bills round up to help the community beginning in March

Beginning in March, unless you choose to opt-out, your electric bill will round up to the next dollar amount with the spare change going to the Operation Round Up Fund to be used to help local non-profit agencies in the form of grants. For just pennies, nickels, and dimes each month, you can help local charitable organizations meet many needs of children and families in the seven counties served by NGEMC.

These counties include Catoosa, Chattooga, Gordon, Floyd, Murray, Walker, and Whitfield.
