Habersham EMC Announces New Rate Structure


Effective April 1, 2016, a new rate structure will go into effect. The restructure is designed to better reflect the actual costs to provide members with safe, reliable electricity. 

A cost-of-service study to evaluate the current cost to serve a member was completed in 2015. The study showed it would benefit HEMC members by revising the rate structures to include the current average Wholesale Power Cost Adjustment (WPCA) within the rate. HEMC's current average WPCA was .03515 cents. With the new rate structure, it has been set to zero.
