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.
