Welcome to the Cobb EMC Forum

Encouraging Member participation in the affairs of Cobb EMC


The COBB EMC FORUM is made up of Cobb EMC rate paying Member/Owners. The Forum works to insure responsible management by the Cobb EMC Board of Directors and Senior Management Staff.

It is important to know that every Cobb EMC rate payer is a Member/Owner of Cobb EMC.

The Forum’s goal is to ensure that Cobb EMC is focused to provide Member/Owners with the very best service and lowest rates in the State of Georgia. The Forum also works to inform Member/Owners of the activities and actions of Cobb EMC and encourage Member participation in EMC governance.

Cobb EMC to Implement New Residential Rate in January

The Board of Cobb EMC has approved a new residential rate to begin January, 2016. The new rate adds a demand component, a monthly charge per kilowatt of demand based on the highest hour of usage by a residence during certain designated hours of the year. This new rate as currently approved will be voluntary for the first three years, but will become mandatory by 2019. This new rate structure is intended to be revenue neutral overall, but could affect different Member bills in different ways. Stay tuned, Cobb EMC Forum plans to get further details on this new rate and how it affects your wallet in the coming weeks.

2015 Cobb EMC Election Results

The Cobb EMC Annual Member Meeting on September 19, 2015 saw the completion of voting for three Cobb EMC Director seats and four amendments to the Cobb EMC bylaws. Cobb EMC Forum was disappointed that the two non-incumbent candidates it endorsed were defeated by incumbents Kelly Bodner in District 3 and Eric Broadwell in District 9. The Forum congratulates all three incumbents for their reinstatement as Directors and looks forward to working with the entire Cobb EMC Board going forward.

Cobb EMC Forum is very pleased to report that all four proposed bylaw amendments were passed by Member vote. These amendments significantly enhance Member rights by (1) strengthening the Member Bill of Rights, (2) enhancing conflict of interest provisions for EMC Directors, (3) allowing Members to hear from candidates for Director and bylaw amendment sponsors at future annual meetings prior to the closing of voting and (4) insuring that all Director meetings where a quorum of Directors is present are open to Member attendance.
