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 94 electric providers in Georgia, your co-op has the second lowest rates at the 1,500 and 2,000 kwh levels and the fifth lowest at 1000 kwh. PSC residential rate surveys are done twice a year during the summer and winter. For the winter 2021 survey, residential rates in effect for the month of January from Georgia’s EMCs, government-owned utilities and Georgia Power were 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.
