Operation Round Up
Makes Extra Change Count
Each month, thousands of Georgia’s local EMC consumers generously round
up their electric bills to the next highest dollar amount to provide help
to local charities and service organizations. From this “extra change,” EMCs
have distributed millions of dollars throughout the state since the Operation
Round Up program began in 1989. Recipients include food banks, Boys and Girls
Clubs, Boy Scouts, Hospice, schools and many, many others. To find out more,

Consumers may take their electricity for granted, but we want to make sure everyone takes electrical safety seriously. Our EMC employees receive ongoing training to handle this powerful resource as safely as possible, and there are some essential basic rules we want everyone to know. That’s why many EMCs provide safety demonstrations for schools, community groups and local events. Ask your local
EMC about safety demonstrations available in your area.
EMCs across the state offer a series of training sessions to help elected officials and civic leaders understand the economic development process and help their communities thrive and prosper. These sessions are just one component of a comprehensive community and economic development program coordinated by Georgia EMC. To find out more, contact your local
