Jackson EMC helps our community grow and prosper. By providing reliable electric service at an affordable price, businesses and industries can thrive.

As a cooperative, Jackson EMC actively supports economic development. Our Business Development team works closely with communities across our service area to recruit businesses through comprehensive member services and relationship development. Our team members live in the communities they serve to provide the highest level of service.

How We Support Economic Development:

  • Work with local, state and federal elected officials on issues affecting economic development in our community.
  • Actively participate in our local chambers of commerce to recruit new business investment and encourage the expansion of existing industry and small businesses.
  • Serve in leadership roles in our local chambers of commerce and trade organizations.
  • Partner with Georgia EMC to offer community and economic development support for communities that we serve. Those services include property searches, drone imagery/video, GIS mapping and other technical services. Georgia EMC also provides leadership development and strategic planning services, market data, and demographic reporting among other services.
  • Partner with the Georgia Economic Developers Association (GEDA) to promote economic development in cities and counties across our service territory.
