Ways to Save: Summer Rates Now in Effect

When the summer months hit, Jackson EMC members typically use more electricity to cool their houses and businesses. But, take heart: You’ll spend fewer energy dollars than most households in Georgia.

Higher temperatures increase the demand for electricity. Still, our 2017 summer residential rates for an average member consuming 1,500 kWh per month were on average 8.6 percent lower than all electric providers in the state, according to the Georgia Public Service Commission’s Residential Rate Survey.

By reducing your energy use, you can lower your monthly electric bill this summer. For tips on steps you can take to lower your monthly bill, visit jacksonemc.com/waystosave.
