Georgia's first renewable energy program, Green Power Electric Membership Corp. (EMC), recently welcomed Okefenoke REMC as its newest member, bringing the number of participating electric cooperatives throughout the state to 36.

Headquartered in Nahunta, Ga., Okefenoke REMC adds 33,000 consumers to Green Power EMC, a nonprofit cooperative that now offers green energy to more than 1.6 million Georgia households.

"We are very pleased for the support of the EMC family in making renewable energy available to almost 3 million Georgians," says Michael Whiteside, president and CEO of Green Power EMC. "We continue to seek new projects to add to our renewable energy portfolio and the 112 million kWh we have already generated and made available in the last four years."
