Local Students Awarded ORU Scholarships

Six graduating high school seniors were recently the happy recipients of the Habersham EMC Operation Round Up Scholarship Program. 

The Operation Round Up scholarships are made possible by HEMC members who voluntarily have their electric bill rounded up to the next dollar. The resulting change not only supports scholarships but also provides grants for non-profit organizations, individuals and families. The total annual donation per member is only $6—a small amount for a big community impact.

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.
