Over the last decade, Cobb EMC has been investing in smart, renewable energy technology for its members and is on schedule to attain its clean energy goals by 2030.

The installation of rooftop solar panels on campus, the completion of a Solar Flower Garden, the activation of battery storage and additional utility-scale solar later this year are all keeping Cobb EMC's sustainability goals on track.

Overall, Cobb EMC's clean energy goals consist of reducing carbon emissions by 75% and doubling up on their renewable energy portfolio with a 200% increase, all by 2030.

In 2022, Cobb EMC will be among a very few cooperatives in the nation that will incorporate microgrid technology. The planned microgrid system will allow the co-op to operate autonomously if the need arises. The system will furnish a continuous supply of power to the cooperative during any extended outages, which strengthens power grid resilience for faster response and recovery.
