Canoochee EMC has implemented another program aimed at helping our senior citizens and our disabled members.
Worrying about payments while waiting for a check is not convenient for anyone, so why not take charge of your payment schedule? Sign up for Canoochee EMC’s Senior Citizen/Disability Plan.
At Canoochee, we do not have control over when you receive your retirement, or assistance income, but we are now able to control when you receive your electricity bill.
Your meter will be read approximately every 30 days, like normal, but you will be receiving your bill around the 27th of the month. By changing your billing, you will have a new due date. This due date will be printed on your electricity bill.
To sign up for the Senior Citizen/Disability Plan, complete the form found in your local Canoochee EMC office.
Green Power EMC and Canoochee EMC have partnered together to install a six panel, 1 kW solar panel that generates electricity for a classroom at Tattnall High School in Reidsville, Georgia. The pole mounted solar array is located just behind the science department and near the football stadium with communications equipment, DC/AC power inverter, and meter placed inside the classroom. If the classroom is not being used or the solar panel generates excess power, the electricity is fed onto Planters EMC's power grid.
The system works by collecting the sun's energy through six photovoltaic array panels and generates Direct Current (DC) that is fed into a power inverter. The inverter converts the DC power into Alternating Current (AC) that can be used to power lights, computers or other classroom electrical devices.
The data collection system monitors DC and AC current, voltage, and power output; ambient and cell temperature; and solar irradiation in the plane of the array. Students and teachers use system data as part classroom studies of math, science, and the environment.
Green Power EMC is a partnership of 38 Georgia electric membership cooperatives who through working together have given Georgia residents the state's first choice of "green" electricity. EMCs are consumer-owned electric cooperatives that provide energy and other value-added services to their members at cost. The Green Power EMC members represent more than three million Georgia homes, businesses, factories and farms. The Sun Power for School initiative represents the first statewide academic program to showcase the benefits of solar energy. Click on the picture for more information.
