Celebrate National Co-Op Month

Co-ops, like Jackson EMC, are member-owned and operated. Did you know that we’re one of more than 900 electric cooperatives in the U.S.? Co-ops, exist to serve their members. During National Co-Op Month in October, we celebrate what makes being part of a co-op different. 

Our core business purpose is to serve as your electricity provider, but the larger mission of the co-op is to help make our community a better place. 

Co-ops operate in many industries and sectors of the economy and follow seven cooperative principles that set us apart from other businesses: voluntary and open membership; democratic member control; members' economic participation; autonomy and independence; education, training and information; cooperation among cooperatives; and concern for community. 

Electric membership cooperatives (EMCs) in Georgia serve approximately 4.4 million people of the state’s 10 million residents and 73% of the state’s land area.
