Invest in the future of Green Power
In 2001, Flint Energies partnered with other EMCs in Georgia to form Green Power EMC to support EMCs in their search to purchase electricity generated from renewable energy sources. It became operational in 2003 and now 38 EMC's in the state participate in the program.
The primary efforts of Green Power EMC have been to find, screen, analyze, and negotiate purchase agreements with Georgia-based renewable resource providers. In addition to sourcing renewable energy, Green Power EMC provides education programs that help members learn both the challenges and opportunities of utilizing renewable energy.

Learn more about green power
Green power, or renewable energy, is environmentally-friendly electricity generated from renewable resources, such as solar, wind, biomass (which uses landfill gas and agricultural waste), and water. It's a little more expensive to generate than traditional power because of the technology involved, but every block of green power that you buy through us means that we're purchasing one less block of power derived from traditional sources, like gas or coal. The blocks of green power available for purchase from Flint Energies are 100% biomass and Green-e certified. Each 150 kWh block is an additional $4 per month in addition to your monthly power bill.

Flint Energies is also helping educate future generations about the benefits and challenges surrounding renewables. Through Green Power EMC's Energy Education Program, we partnered with Huntington Middle School in Warner Robins in 2007 to install a 1 kilowatt (kW) grid-tied photovoltaic system behind the school. We installed additional solar panels and monitoring systems at Thomson Middle School in Centerville and at Marion County Middle High School in Buena Vista in 2016. This system harnesses energy from the sun and students can monitor its data from the classroom.
