Economic Development

As the area’s local provider of energy solutions, we continually work to develop opportunities for commercial and industrial customers. This involvement in local businesses enhances our community’s growth by creating jobs and increasing local revenue. Hart EMC has much to offer any type of business– with an ever-expanding workforce, beautiful scenery and outstanding housing and education opportunities. The decision to make our area the new site for your business or the expansion of an existing business is both rewarding and affordable.

Georgia’s unique customer choice power arrangement offers most new and expanding businesses the opportunity to choose their power supplier in a competitive environment. Because of the ideal environment for competition for electric energy, Hart EMC can offer very attractive energy rates with many billing options for new and existing members. Georgia’s Integrated Transmission System (ITS) assures the availability of reliable bulk power to customers at virtually any site.

Through our membership in Georgia Electric Membership Corporation, the state association for electric cooperatives, Hart EMC offers a number of valuable services for economic development through the Economic Development Department.
