SSEMC Rates Some of Best in State

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

Among all EMCs in Georgia, your co-op has the lowest residential rates at 2,000 kwh and 1,500 kwh, the second lowest at 1,000 kwh and the third lowest at the 500 kwh level. Among 94 electric providers in Georgia, your co-op’s rates are the lowest at 2,000 kwh and 1,500 kwh, third lowest at 1,000 kwh and 19th lowest at 500 kwh.

PSC residential rate surveys are done twice a year during the summer and winter. For the winter 2018 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
