What Will You Buy With Your Energy Savings?

Electric bills often increase in the summer. The increase in summer bills is due to higher cost per kWh and because on average, members use more electricity in the summer compared to the rest of the year. While no one likes higher bills, Jackson EMC members enjoy some of the lowest rates in the state. Out of 94 electric utilities surveyed statewide, Jackson EMC is among the lowest, according to the Georgia Public Service Commission's Summer 2016 Residential Rate Survey. Between May and September, when our summer rates are in effect, members using 1,500 kWh a month save $69.15 over the average customer statewide.
