In 1973, the Georgia General Assembly passed the Georgia Territorial Electric Service Act, which assigned exclusive service territories to Georgia’s electric utilities.
Residential and commercial customers with a connected load under 900 kilowatts are assigned to an electric provider based on the location of their home or business. However, in some instances, commercial and industrial customers with a connected load that exceeds 900 kilowatts are considered “Customer Choice” projects. These customers have the right to select from any electric provider that is willing and able to serve their needs.
Coweta-Fayette EMC offers an extremely competitive rate tor customer choice projects and has a proven record of providing quality, cost-effective service to large utility users. We encourage developers or businesses considering a location for a new facility to contact Coweta-Favette EMC staff so that we may assist you with any of your service needs.
