SSEMC Rates Among Lowest in State


Snapping Shoals EMC members continue to pay less for their electricity than most other Georgians. SSEMC's residential rates are among the lowest in three categories, according to a recent Georgia Public Service Commission survey of all electric providers in the state.
PSC residential rate surveys are done twice a year during the summer and winter. For the summer 2018 survey, residential rates in effect for the month of July from Georgia’s 41 EMCs, 52 government-owned utilities and Georgia Power are utilized.
The survey looks at four different electricity levels: 500, 1,000, 1,500 and 2,000 kilowatt-hours (kWh). A kilowatt-hour is the unit we use to determine the amount of electric power you consume. One kilowatt-hour is the electric power required to run one 100-watt light bulb for ten hours.
Among all 94 electric providers in Georgia, Snapping Shoals EMC has the 4th lowest residential rates at 1,000 kwh, the 4th lowest at 1,500 kwh and 5th lowest at 2000 kwh.
