Power of Membership
What it means to be part of MEMC
Cooperatives are owned by the members, or customers, who use them. Mitchell Electric Membership Cooperative (Mitchell EMC) was formed over 75 years ago by members just like you who needed electric services. They pulled together to organize your electric cooperative.
Today, Mitchell EMC safely delivers reliable electricity to more than 24,630 residential and commercial members in Mitchell, Worth and Dougherty counties. Mitchell EMC’s distribution system consists of over 5,570 miles of line over 400 square miles.
