Managing the grid for 4.1 million Georgians and
getting it ready for millions more
You don't have to be a large company to play a significant role in the lives of millions. With only a few hundred employees, we plan, build and maintain high-voltage power lines and substations that keep 38 electric membership cooperatives and about 4.1 million Georgians in business. We work with other major utilities to jointly plan and operate the state's power grid of 17,500 miles of transmission lines. We build up to 100 miles of new facilities each year. And we inspect and protect our 3,000 miles of power lines and substations – all in an effort to make outages as rare as possible for EMC customers at home, work and play.
