SSEMC Rates Some of Best in State

Your co-op ranks among those with lowest electrical rates in Georgia.


Snapping Shoals EMC members continue to pay less for their electricity than most other Georgians, according to the Georgia Public Service Commission(PSC) winter survey.

Among all EMCs in Georgia, your co-op has the second lowest residential rates at 2,000 kWh, the third lowest at 1,500 and 1,000 kWh and the fourth lowest at the 500 kWh level.

Among 94 electric providers in Georgia, your co-op's rates are second lowest at 2,000 kWh, fifth lowest at 1,000 kWh and fourth lowest at 1,500 kWh.

PSC residential rate surveys are done twice a year during the summer and winter. For the winter 2017 survey, residential rates in effect for the month of January from Georgia's EMCs, government-owned utilities and Georgia Power are utilized.

The survey looks at four different electricity levels: 500, 1,000, 1,500, and 2,000 kilowatt-hours(kWh). A kilowatt-hour is the unit used to determine the amount of electric power consumed. One kilowatt-hour is the electric power required to run one 100-watt light bulb for ten hours. For more information about the survey and the PSC, visit
