What do I do if I've been disconnected?
Sometimes paying your bill may simply slip your mind, or you may be facing difficult circumstances. Either way, NGEMC is here to help if your account is disconnected for non-payment.
- Regular billing accounts:
- Your due date is posted on your bill.
- Late fees are applied to the account on the next calendar day after your due date.
- Accounts are subject to disconnection 10 calendar days after the due date has passed.
- Payment arrangements can be set using our online web portal or by using our automated phone line by the day before the account is subject to disconnection (9 calendar days after your due date.)
- On the day when your account is subject to disconnection or after the power has been shut off, please contact our Member Services team directly by calling our office to make a full payment or set up an arrangement.
- Prepay Accounts
- Your account is subject to disconnection after the account falls below a credit of $0.
- Use any payment option that will post to your account automatically to pay the amount owed and enough to leave the account with a $25 credit.
How to report and view outages
You can report and view outages on the online Outage Center. Members can also call any of our published phone numbers to report an outage.

Safely making electrical repairs
Visit the Outage Recovery and Safety Center to find electrician resource guides, information on generator and electrical safety, and other ways to stay safe and keep the power on.
- Visit the Outage Recovery and Safety Center
- Call 811 before you dig.
- Contact your regional building inspectors after making electrical repairs.
Quick facts: NGEMC must have free access to your meter in case repairs are needed. If your meter is behind a fence, please contact NGEMC to make a plan to allow access to crews. Whether you are playing outdoors with your children or working on landscaping projects, keep a safe distance from power lines and other equipment your co-op uses to get electricity to your home.
Have you seen an increase in your energy usage? Request an energy audit from our Energy Services team to determine possible causes of high usage in your home.
- How do I conserve energy?
- Visit our Amazon storefront to find energy-saving items for your home.

Quick facts: NGEMC offers heat pump loans with easy payments added to your monthly energy bill. We use certified HVAC installers to meet your heat pump needs.
Thinking of installing solar panels or a generator? If you are considering solar or have recently installed solar or a back-up generator, please let us know! We can help you answer any questions you may have. Please always notify NGEMC when you install a generator at your home. Some units are powerful enough to supply your home and push excess power back out onto lines, creating a potential hazard for line workers. When you alert NGEMC to a generator or solar panel installation, we will add a note to your account that will allow line workers to safely work on the lines serving your home.
- Where can I find more information about solar?
- How can a generator be safely installed and used?

NGEMC's Annual Meeting
North Georgia EMC's Annual Meeting is scheduled on the first Thursday in August.
For NGEMC, as with all electric cooperatives, annual meetings are vital to the work and spirit of the cooperative. A cooperative is an organization created and governed by the people it serves. Annual meetings are the forums through which the consumer/member stays informed and involved in the activity of the organization. At each year's meeting, members elect directors, vote on any proposed new business or bylaw amendments, and hear the annual report.
